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.
Alberto is a fun dog looking for a new home. He will need a meet-and-greet with any resident canines, and a feline-free home would be best. Alberto loves going for walks and may make a good hiking buddy. Alberto will need secure confinement when unsupervised.
Luca is a handsome guy looking for a forever home. He has lived with kids, cats and other dogs. He will need slow introductions with any family member (two- and four-legged). He will need a meet-and-greet with any resident dogs. He knows several commands but does have some separation anxiety that his new family will need to manage. (Curt Story/Everett Animal Shelter)
Monty has been shuffled around quite a bit in his life and is ready for a permanent home. This handsome fellow will need a meet-and-greet with any resident canines and we are not sure how he will do with cats. Monty loves going for walks with our volunteers and generally just hanging out with people.
Harriet is a very intelligent, high energy dog. She is looking for a home that has recent experience with Malinois. She must have a home that is free of small critters, and she will need a meet-and-greet with any resident dogs. Any children in the home must be older. Harriet is not suited for apartment living. Harriet has had very little training — she is probably not fully house trained and is not great on a leash. She needs a secure fenced yard of her own. Her new family should be ready to start training right away.
Shadow is a young senior looking for her retirement home. She has some anxiety when left alone but is crate trained and considers it her safe place. Shadow has not lived with other dogs but enjoys going to dog parks and meeting new friends. She will need a meet-and-greet with any resident canines and we are not sure how she will do with cats. Shadow’s ideal home would be with one or two adults who enjoy taking walks and have a calm, predictable adult home.
