Your Donations Save Lives!
Making a donation to the Seattle Animal Shelter is one of the simplest things you can do to save a life and prevent pet homelessness. The shelter has four funds set up to accept your donations.
Help the Animals Fund
Love a mutt? You’ll love this fund. Your donation is put to work in numerous ways to promote animal welfare. Our top priority is to rehabilitate animals that are the subject of cruelty and neglect. Donations to this fund pay for veterinary care for shelter animals along with promoting educational outreach to prevent homeless, unwanted and abused animals. This fund also supports the shelter’s foster and volunteer programs ensuring that each animal receives loving care while at the shelter.
Pet Population Control Fund
Loving pet owners are responsible pet owners. The best way to prevent unwanted pets is through spaying and neutering. Since 1996, our Municipal Spay and Neuter Clinic has helped pay for the spaying and neutering of pets owned by low-income families with your donations. Donations are also used to educate the public about spaying and neutering along with purchasing the latest, safest surgical equipment.
Shelter Expansion Fund
Help us grow. The Seattle Animal Shelter currently relies on over 600 volunteers in 25 different programs to care for 6,000 animals a year. Simply put, we need more space. Your donation will help improve our animal areas along with funding a plan to add 4,600 square feet. This will create the space needed for volunteer orientations and training, indoor dog obedience classes, animal welfare meetings, and adoption events.
Off-Leash Area Fund
This fund provides dedicated places for our canines to run and socialize. Donations directed here are used to create and maintain the many off-leash sites around the city. So unleash your generosity, and watch us do great things for our furry friends.
