Featured Upcoming Event


The Seattle Animal Shelter isn't all about dogs and cats! From the fluffiest bunny to the tiniest gecko, we provide sheltering and adoptions for all homeless animals in Seattle. This Halloween-themed event is appropriate for all ages, and guests will have the opportunity to visit and even handle some of the critters at the shelter. Our incredibly knowledgeable critter volunteers and staff will be on hand to discuss different critter habitats, food, enrichment activities and more!

Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017
Noon to 3 p.m.
Event is free to attend; if you meet your perfect match, regular adoption fees will apply. Check out our Adoption listings to see available animals before the event.
