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.

Cherri is here looking for her new home! She loves to be with her people but can be very wary of strangers including other dogs. She is leash reactive and is looking for someone who is familiar with this issue and has a plan to work through it with her. After super slow, proper introductions Cherri has made a doggie friend or two. She is very smart and loves to learn. She would do well in a home without close neighbors and a yard of her own. She will need a feline free home and we are not sure how she will do with children. (Curt Story/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 the only rabbit in your life. (Arleigh Movitz/Everett Animal Shelter)
Kami is looking for that one special person to snuggle. She used to live with a single woman but once another cat and more people moved in, Kami showed her distress by peeing inappropriately. She was also required to go to the basement for her litter box. Maybe it was just too far away? Whatever the issue there, Kami’s been using the box perfectly here and while she may be a little timid at first, she soon warms up to new people. (Arleigh Movitz/Everett Animal Shelter)

Woodstock is a very active young dog! He would make a great hiking or running buddy. He will need a meet and greet with any resident dogs and a feline free home. Teddy has had very little training and can easily knock over young children. Any children in the home must be over 7 years old. This dude is not suited for apartment living.
