Can you give one of these pets a home?

Snohomish County shelters are filled with animals waiting to be adopted. Take a look at some of them and along with some success stories — animals that have recently been adopted.

The Everett Animal Shelter hosts thousands of stray and unwanted animals every year. Some are adopted right away, but some sit in the shelter for weeks at a time, waiting for a home. The shelter has dogs and cats, as well as some rabbits and birds, all looking for a loving home.

All pets are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and given a identifying microchip before they are adopted. Take a look at some of the dogs, cats and other animals that are available for adoption at the shelter now.

If you’re interested in adopting an animal, the shelter is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 425-257-6000.

The NOAH Center is a non-profit, no-kill animal adoption and spay/neuter clinic in Stanwood. NOAH transfers in animals from 31 overcrowded shelters across Washington state, giving them a second chance. They offer family friendly dog and cat adoptions, affordable spay/neuter services for low-income pet owners, free feral cat spay/neuter, volunteer opportunities, pet supply shop, and community off-leash dog play area with a half-mile wilderness walking trail.

Take a look at some of the dogs and cats that are available for adoption at NOAH.

The NOAH Center is just off I-5 at exit 215 at 31300 Brandstrom Rd., Stanwood. It’s open 7 days a week (11 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays). For more information, call 360-629-7055 or visit www.thenoahcenter.org.
