Sampson and his best buddy, Bailey, have lived together for 8 years…that’s a long time for a cat! Sampson is a big, fluffy cuddle bug who prefers to drink water from the sink or tub. Bailey is playful with anything and anyone except dogs (they frighten him). Both boys prefer a quiet home and would love to stay together. (Arleigh Movitz/Everett Animal Shelter)
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.

Bustifer Jones is a shy guy but loves to hang out next to you or in your lap. He is declawed and will need to be an indoor cat. He has been missing the litter box recently, and here are some possible reasons: moving across county, being declawed, too many animals in the house. (Arleigh Movitz/Everett Animal Shelter)
Sweet and shy Ella’s family moved away and couldn’t take her along. She’s been declawed so she’ll need to continue to be an indoor only kitty. Her former owners had this to say about Ella: “She likes to talk to you and she will only hop on the bath counter to get a drink, doesn’t hop on other counters. She LOVES snuggling!” (Arleigh Movitz/Everett Animal Shelter)
Hoppity was found outside, all on her own. She’s lucky someone rescued her before she got into danger! Hoppity will live happily indoors as long as she has daily supervised playtime outside her cage. Hoppity is still litter box training. She loves to eat lots of timothy hay every day and an occasional small carrot is nice, too. Hoppity will need a slow introduction to any resident animals or prefer to be the only rabbit in your life. (Arleigh Movitz/Everett Animal Shelter)
Lena is a calm and friendly cat in her golden years. She seems to get along with other calm cats and would do best in a peaceful environment where there’s a regular routine and the activity level is low. Lena likes to be scratched under the chin and enjoys rolling around on catnip toys! (Arleigh Movitz/Everett Animal Shelter)
Prince is a super handsome guy looking for his forever family! He has lived with another dog and kids over 10 years old. He cannot live with cat or small animals. Prince is a very active dog and will need daily mental and physical activity. He will need a meet and greet with any resident canines prior to going home. Prince is in need of positive reinforcement training to get him on the road to becoming a good canine citizen. (Curt Story/Everett Animal Shelter)
Sasha is a bit of a shy, independent lady who prefers sitting NEXT to you but not ON you. She would do best in a quiet predictable home where she can sunbathe in peace. (Arleigh Movitz/Everett Animal Shelter)
Witten is here because his caretaker passed away. He is used to living a calm, quiet household with another respectful cat. Witten is the shy, sensitive type and will need a home that can respect his sensitive nature. He enjoys the occasional play session and lounging around. (Arleigh Movitz/Everett Animal Shelter)
