SAS has a ton of critters right now (12 bunnies, 3 birds, 4 reptiles and 24 other small mammals including chinchillas and guinea pigs.. but who’s counting!).

The Life’s A Beach critter adoption event is tomorrow, July 16th, from noon to 6pm at the Seattle Animal Shelter. SAS is located in Interbay, just north of Whole Foods at 2061 15th Ave W.

This event is a great opportunity for people to go meet the critters at the shelter, and find the right critter for your home. Plus, 50% off adoption fees!

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Mamasita

Mamasita 1Hello, I’m Mamasita and I’m just about the cutest, most affectionate little seven year old Maltese/Poodle mix (aka Maltipoo) you’ll ever meet!

The first part of my life was not very happy, but ever since coming into my foster home I’ve felt what real love feels like and have really opened up! All I want is to be in your lap, snuggled up close and napping.

Mamasita 3I do very well on my own when the humans are at work and get so excited every time they reappear! I’ve learned how to walk nicely on the leash, how to “sit” and am working on “lay down” and “give paw.”

I generally like every dog I meet but don’t have a lot of interest in playing or rough housing. Do you have room in your home and your lap for me?

Mamasita (SAS ID #31333451) is being lavished with attention in a foster home; you won’t find her at the Shelter.

Mamasita 2If you would like to meet this adorable bundle of happiness, you must first submit a Dog Adoption Application to SAS. Download the application and follow the instructions for submitting it via email or fax. Or, you may pick up and drop off an application at the Shelter.

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Three Little Mice

Screen Shot 2016-07-01 at 1.04.33 PMHave you ever considered adopting a mouse? We have a number of adoptable mice in the Critter Room just waiting to meet you. Domestic mice are the picture of cuteness with bright eyes, dainty paws and a twitching nose all wrapped up in a soft, furry package.

They have distinct personalities and some like to be handled while others prefer to entertain you with their antics inside their homes (usually an aquarium or wire cage).

The shelter staff can tell you all about setting up a mouse home and caring for your pet mouse, and help you pick a mouse that is right for your family. Here are just a few of the mice that are currently available for adoption:

FlourineFluorine is a sweet and adorable brown mouse who likes light attention but lives for his wheel! Being the athlete that he is, Fluorine loves healthy and fresh food in addition to his mouse pellets. Comfortable in a calm or lively environment, Fluorine is looking for his forever home full of love and preferably a bigger wheel to get his miles in!

CadmiumCadmium is an adorable little gal with a smirk permanently on her sweet face. She’s very social and would love to have a (female) buddy with her. Cadmium is all about the snacks and playtime and would thrive in a livelier home environment! 

ArgonArgon is a sweet little guy who enjoys napping high up in his nest and snacking the day away. Being the bachelor he is, Argon would do best living the single life in a bigger cage for more climbing but is looking for love and companionship within his forever home.

Stop by the Shelter and ask for the Critter Room to meet these and other adoptable critters.

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Taco

Taco 2Meet Taco! You won’t be able to leave without Taco as soon as you look into her big green eyes. She purrs very loudly and loves a pat between her ears and under her chin.

She likes sitting on your lap and is the perfect snuggle buddy on the couch in front of the TV. Taco also loves playtime and her fishing pole toys. Sometimes she’s caught pawing them when no one is around, just to check if they are going to move.

Taco is a sweetheart who enjoys being around people and will purr when you give her attention. She likes attention so much, when you get home from work she greets you with a meow and expects a pat back in return.

Taco 1She loves being in the same room as you, always curious at what you are up to. Her favorite places to sit are next to you, on your lap or on the backrest of the couch next to your shoulders.

Taco was quick to get used to her new foster home, she was sleeping on the bed on her first night and has had no problems using the litter box.

Taco 3Taco will do best in a household without other cats: she wants your love all to herself! She isn’t demanding at all and won’t tear up the house while you are out during the day. Set up a time to meet her and get ready to fall in love.

You won’t find Taco (SAS ID #30422207) at the shelter – she’s being lavished with attention in a foster home. Please contact the Foster Care Hotline at (206) 684-0685 to arrange a meeting.

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Quince & Fiona

Fiona_Quince 4Quince and Fiona are bunny siblings who have never been separated and must be adopted together. (Of course, they are both neutered.) In addition to being very cute, they also have exquisitely soft and thick fur. Both are super friendly and love attention but on their own terms. Quince enjoys “bunstruction,” rearranging the items in his habitat to his liking, and it can be quite entertaining to watch him do this.

Rabbits can make great house pets. They are quiet, have lots of personality and bond closely with their humans. House rabbits need a large, rabbit-proofed **indoor** area of your home to live in, with covered areas to hide and relax in. Rabbits are intelligent and social animals; they do best with a rabbit companion, and need daily interaction with their human friends.

Fiona_Quince 3Rabbits should be fed high-quality hay pellets, unlimited hay, and fresh leafy greens. (Leaf lettuce, carrot tops, parsley, cilantro, and pesticide-free dandelion are good choices.) Treats include small portions of carrot or fruit, such as apple, berries, pear, grape, or banana. Your rabbit will need regular nail trims and vet checks. With proper care and lots of love, rabbits can live to be 10-12 years old.

Fiona_Quince 1You are expected to make a lifetime commitment to your bunnies, and they should be treated as an integral part of the family. The primary caregiver must be a responsible adult, and young children should always be supervised when interacting with your bunny and instructed on proper approach and handling. Household cats or dogs should be carefully supervised at all times.

Fiona and Quince (SAS ID# 30058019 and 30066199) can be found romping around the Critter Room at the Shelter (Quince will probably be rearranging something).

Come on down and meet them and their bunny friends today!

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Oswald

Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 1.35.38 PMMeet Oswald!

Are you looking for a walking buddy? Someone to help you stay motivated to get outside a few times a day?

Oswald is a distinguished, full figured gentleman seeking his forever home and a walking pal. He is looking forward to a home dedicated to helping him with sensible weight reduction and exercise (nothing too strenuous to start).

Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 1.34.46 PMHe’s an eight year old Chihuahua mix. As he loses weight and becomes fitter, he’ll seem even younger! [Look at that photo, he’s feeling younger already! What a ham!]

Oswald is sweet, calm and easy to handle. He will thrive in a patient home where he will get lots of TLC. He enjoys leisurely walks and likes being petted. He would be an excellent choice for someone considering their first dog adoption.

Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 1.35.49 PMOswald also 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!

Oswald (SAS ID#31495352) is at the Seattle Animal Shelter waiting for you to come meet him!
