On Fridays we feature an adoptable pet from the Seattle Animal Shelter (SAS). SAS is located at 2061 15th Ave W, just north of Whole Foods, at the corner of W. Armory Way. SAS is open Wednesday – Sunday, noon-6pm.
Queen Anne View has not met any of these pets – SAS is providing us with the description, as they know them well. We encourage potential adopters to get in touch with SAS and work with them to evaluate the compatibility of your home and a new pet.
Do you like evening walks? Hanging out in the yard during the summer? Are you the quiet sort who wants a buddy but doesn’t want a high-maintenance dog who demands your attention all the time? I think you and I might get along!
My name is Phoebe and I’m a senior husky mix. You can tell I’m a husky mix because I have one blue eye and one brown eye! That’s pretty special, right? I’m mellow and am looking for a nice, quiet forever home. I’ve been through a lot recently, but thanks to my friends at the shelter, I’m healthy and ready to find a special someone who enjoys exploring their neighborhood and stopping to smell the roses.
I like other dogs just fine, although I’m not really all that interested in playing anymore (at some point, you just outgrow fetch!) I probably can deal with cats as well since I mostly mind my own beeswax. Young kids might be too much for me, but I’d do great in an adults-only house or a house with older kids. I’m very sweet and will make your daily walks, and your life in general, so much more fun!
Phoebe qualifies for the Senior Citizen Discount program: senior citizens or disabled adults with a Gold Card for Healthy Aging or a FLASH card, issued by the City of Seattle, may adopt an adult dog (at least six years old) at a special price. There will be no fee for the adoption itself, and the licensing fee will be half-price.
Phoebe (SAS #13-6861) is being adored in a foster home. If you would like to meet her, you must submit a Dog Adoption Application to SAS. Download the application and follow the instructions for submission via email or fax. Or you may pick up an application at the Shelter. If you have general questions about this dog, you may call the Shelter’s Animal Care Staff at 206.386.4294.
