Lego is an adorable Chihuahua looking for a calm predictable home. He is very frightened of new people and situations. It takes him along time to warm up but once he does he loves to cuddle. Lego does not enjoy the company of children and would prefer a home with older adults. He does still potty in the house but his previous owner said he will use potty pads. Lego barks when left alone and is not suited for apartment living. (Curt Story/Everett Animal Shelter)

A few good Everett Animal Shelter dogs await good homes

Meet Lego, Ruger and Wolverine, pets who are ready to be adopted into forever homes.

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.
