Blu is a great little guy looking for a new home. He LOVES to play ball and would do best in an adult only home. Blu is very active and would do best in a home without cats and small dogs as he may chase them. He’s smart boy who knows a ton of commands like drop, off and shake.

Can you open your home and adopt one of these dogs?

Everett Animal Shelter has these pets ready for adoption to the right owners.

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.
