Usa 2014-7-24 3Meet Ace and Usa!

It’s kitten season and the Shelter has a number of kittens available for adoption, like Ace and Usa. These two are looking for a home together – because the only thing better than one new kitten is TWO new kittens (and they make great companions and playmates for each other)!

Usa 2014-7-24 1Usa is an outgoing and affectionate girl who purrs as soon as you pick her up. She’s playful and fun with her toys, and loves chasing a feather on a string. She’s got the most adorable little short, kinked tail. With her spotted coat and short tail, we’ve been calling her Usa (Japanese for bunny) and she’s just as fast as one!

Ace 2014-7-24 1Ace is a little smaller than his sister, and the shyer of the two, but he loves to play and be petted. He’s most confident when he has his sister around, so that’s another reason they’re looking for a home together. Both are healthy, faithfully use the litter box, and aren’t in the least bit picky about their food.

Ace 2014-7-24 3

Ace and Usa (SAS ID #14-018596-3 & 4) are playing hide and seek in a foster home, they are not at the Shelter. If you would to meet them, please call the Foster Care Hotline at (206) 684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Thank you!

Meet Zack!

Zack 2014-7-17 1Hi there! I’m Zack, and I’d love to meet you! If you’re looking for a cute, cuddly, friendly dog, then look no further – you’ve found me!

I’m a little shy at first, but warm right up. I love to be held and carried around, so I can be your constant companion.

I also love to go on walks with my human and love kids! I’m good with cats, but I’m a little unsure about other dogs; they’re a lot bigger than me!

Zack 2014-7-17 2I know I’d fit right into your home, so come down to the shelter and ask for me, Zack, today!

Zack (SAS ID #14-18814) is at the Seattle Animal Shelter. Dog Adoption Applications are available in the Shelter lobby, or you may download the application and bring it with you to the Shelter or follow the directions to submit it via email or fax.

Critters of Every Shape and Size

The Seattle Animal Shelter provides refuge for a wide range of animals. This week, meet some of the less common pets that we have available for adoption.

Doves 2014-7-11 1The Dove Family – Bubbles, Promise and Picasso (SAS ID #14-18589/1-3)

This adorable mom, dad, and baby trio are looking for a forever home together. You’ll be charmed in no time by their sweet cooing and gentle nature. Doves are very social and do well with other doves. They are good pets for both novice and experienced bird owners. Doves require simple housing, protection from extreme elements, easily accessible food, and clean water. They are usually active from sun up to sun down. The dove family is at the Shelter. 

Archimedes – The Red-eared Slider Turtle (SAS ID #14-16407)

Archimedes 2014-7-11 1Archimedes is an active and handsome red-eared slider turtle. He’s currently sharing a tank with several other slider turtles at the shelter, all of whom are looking for good forever homes.

Archimedes has an old injury on his shell, which has healed, that adds to his character.

Slider turtles have special requirements in order to stay happy and healthy. Potential adopters should have previous experience with exotic turtles and/or have done extensive research on their care and needs. Archimedes is at the Shelter. 

And Don’t Forget the Chinchillas!

Skylar Smore 2014-7-11 1The Shelter took in 21 neglected chinchillas in April – read more about them here. We still have some chins available for adoption, like Skylar and S’more (how cute are they?!)

Skylar Smore 2014-7-11 2Skylar is a grey and white chinchilla girl who is friendly, curious about the world, and the leader of the group. She makes herself right at home–whether that’s your lap, on a desk, or exploring under the bed. She’s gregarious and active, and loves to play with your hair and nibble on your nose.

Skylar Smore 2014-7-11 3S’more is a dark brown chinchilla girl with a cute, pointy face. She’s less adventurous than Skylar, but she enjoys the routine of our day. She likes to approach you on her terms, and when you let her decide when it’s time to interact, she’ll try to climb into your pockets. When she’s had enough playtime, she gets back in the cage all on her own.

Skylar and S’more (SAS ID #14-16301/19 & 21) are a bonded pair of female chinchillas who must be adopted together. They are in a foster home, not at the Shelter. Potential adopters should complete a small animal adoption application and fax it to (206) 386-4285 attention Laura Mundy, email it to laura.mundy@seattle.gov or call (206) 684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Thank you!

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Bella

Meet Bella!

Bella 2014-7-3 1Bella is a happy, outgoing, goofball, who expresses herself with thunderous purrs and a comic “snorting” – rather like a piglet. A very sociable girl, she is friendly and perpetually good-natured. She enjoys being the center of attention, and follows her foster mom around, giving head-butts, foot-rubs and belly-exposing flops.

Bella plays hard and is fast on her feet, exhibiting incredible stamina in pursuit of “da bird” and other flying toys, and she loves to swan around the house proudly carrying a captured catnip mouse in her mouth to show off. For relaxation, she likes to snuggle on the sofa with her head in her foster mom’s lap.

Bella 2014-7-3 2Bella is a faithful user of her scratching post, and has impeccable litter box habits. She’s almost perfect… all she lacks is that special person or family who will take her home and love her forever. Other cats don’t ruffle her fur, and she is gentle with cat-savvy kids.

Call the Foster Care Hotline and make an appointment to meet the lovely Bella today!

Bella (SAS ID #14-15176-8) is being lavished with attention in a foster home, she is not at the Shelter. If you would like to meet her, please call the Foster Care Hotline at (206) 684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Thank you!

Maple 2014-6-26 3Meet Maple!

Howdy, Stranger! I’m Maple, the wonder dog. And just what makes me so special, you might ask? I have all the energy in the universe and I’m both ready and willing to put it towards you, Friend!

I’m a big fan of hikes, jogging and fetch, and I’d love to learn more games and parlor tricks. Keep me active and outside, and I’m happy to help keep you in tiptop shape. Keep up with me if you can! Challenge accepted?

Maple 2014-6-26 1I’d do best in a home where I’m the only pup and if there are kids in the picture, it’d be ideal if they were over 10 years old.

Since I have so much energy, it’d be great if you already had a good grasp on other dogs of my caliber. Can’t wait to meet you at the shelter!

Maple (SAS ID #14-17524) is at the Seattle Animal Shelter. Dog Adoption Applications are available in the Shelter lobby, or you may download the application and bring it with you to the Shelter or follow the directions to submit it via email or fax. If you have general questions about this dog, you may call the Shelter’s Animal Care Staff at 206-386-4294.

Beautiful Brown Bunnies!

Bella & LunaBella, Luna, (females) and Roscoe (male) were found as strays in Woodland Park. They’ve spent some time with a foster family to learn how to be good house bunnies, and are now back at the shelter, ready to find their loving forever homes.

RoscoeThese siblings could be adopted as a trio, or one could be adopted as a companion for your single bunny. They are fun and active young rabbits!

Xanadu (male, lop eared) was also found as a stray in Woodland Park. He’s a handsome, gentle, young rabbit who’s learning to trust people. He’s easy to pick up and enjoys spending time in his play pen.

XanaduRabbits are intelligent and social animals who prefer having a rabbit companion.  They’ll thrive living  indoors with daily human interaction, and can be litterbox trained. With lots of love and proper care, bunnies can live to be 7 – 10 years old.

Bella, Luna and Roscoe (SAS ID #14-15588-1, -2, & -3) are at the Seattle Animal Shelter. Come on down to meet them!

Maude 1Meet Maude!

There’s no stopping Maude, a senior kitty with the energy, health and spunk of a much younger cat. Maude’s previous guardian became homeless, and brought her to the shelter to find the loving home she so deserves.

Maude 2Maude was obviously very much adored and doted upon. If you’re looking for a cat who’ll make a beeline for your lap whenever you sit down, Maude is your gal. She likes to meow as you pass by, as if to say “Hey, please pet me. I’d love a belly rub!”

Maude 3With a great purrsonality and years of love left to give, she will be a delightful and devoted companion.

Maude (SAS ID #12-7087-2) is being lavished with attention in a foster home, and is not at the Shelter. If you would like to meet her, please call the Foster Cat Hotline at 206-684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Thank you!

Angie & Ninja

Angie Pet Of Week1Allow us to introduce ourselves – First, I’m Angie, a pleasantly plump cattle dog mix of a ‘certain age’.  My dear, lifelong friend Ninja (a labrador retriever) and I have arrived here at the shelter so that we might find our retirement home, together.  Though I’m not a silly young pup anymore – I’m still quite spry and am active, outgoing and LOVE attention. When I’m out and about, and meet a friendly looking canine, I’m quick to give them a play bow.  One of my best features, I think, is my big toothy grin. Some years ago, I was attacked by a not-so-friendly dog, and I was left with part of my face missing. But please don’t be concerned – it causes me no bother, and it just gives me a unique look!

Ninja Pet of Week 1Now it’s my turn – Ninja.  I’m a dapper, distinguished gentleman dog, full of the wisdom that comes with age. Though my name may imply I’m highly trained in the martial arts and stealth – those days are behind me now.  I’m quite content with simple things like walking around the neighborhood, and a nice soft bed for napping on. I am a bit thin and look forward to putting on some weight. Sometimes when I’m not looking, Angie has been known to sneak in and gobble up my dinner before I have a chance! Such a silly girl – I love her anyway!

Angie & NinjaWe would be honored to become part of your family. We have indeed been together all of our lives, and we wish to remain a pair.  We depend on each other, keep each other company, and give each other strength. We are pretty easy keepers – we’re house trained, easy to handle, gentle and relaxed. If you have a bit of dog experience and a zen-like household, we might fit right in.  We still like our daily walks, but none of that foolish jogging! We wouldn’t mind sharing our new home with a cat, or another dog, as long as we’re all compatible. We understand you’ll want to give us some thought before making the decision to adopt us – please know we’ll fill your home with unconditional love and gratitude, x2 !!

Angie (SAS ID #14-15970-2) and Ninja (SAS ID #14-15970-1) are currently in a foster home. If you would like to meet them, you must 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 an application at the Shelter. If you have general questions about these dogs, you may call the Shelter’s Animal Care Staff at 206-386-4294.  Thanks!

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Chinchilla-rama!

Chinchilla-rama!!

Chins 2014-05-29 1In late April, the Seattle Animal Shelter took in a group of 21 chinchillas (11 males and 10 females)! The chins were malnourished and several had infections. Since that time, they have been examined by a vet, and all the females have been spayed.

Now, these sweet chinchillas are recovering in foster care, and will soon be available for adoption. They can be adopted as singles (if you already have a chinchilla that needs a companion), in pairs, or in small groups. These adorable little guys have been through a lot, and need excellent homes where they will get the care and love they need, as well as ample space to play and exercise.

Chins 2014-05-29 3Chinchillas are nocturnal (active at night) and are extremely energetic and playful. They need a large, multi-level enclosure with plenty of room for running, leaping, and playing around.

Chinchillas are social animals; they do best in pairs and also enjoy spending time with their human friends. Chins have a sensitive digestive system and should be fed a well-formulated pellet diet and hay. Dust to “bathe” in should be offered on a regular basis.

Chins 2014-05-29 2With good care, chinchillas can live to be 15 to 20 years old. Potential adopters should have some prior chinchilla experience or have done extensive research on their care needs.

Potential adopters should complete a small animal adoption application and fax it to (206) 386-4285, attention Laura Mundy, or email it to laura.mundy@seattle.gov. A “Highly Adoptable” fee will apply – ask a Shelter staff member for more information. Due to the large number of chinchillas involved in this case, the Shelter asks for your patience during the process of finding the very best match for all of its available critters.

Mama 2014-5-21 1Meet Mama!

This lovely lady is Mama, and her name reflects all the nurturing qualities she displays daily. She loves to show affection and warmth. She is a lap cat and enjoys nestling up to you whether you are sitting on the couch or lying in bed.

Mama is about 8 years young and gets along well with other cats. It took her no time at all to befriend her foster mom’s 1 year old cat, proving that she can keep up with the youngins. In fact, she’d prefer a home where either her person is home a lot, or where she has another cat to keep her company while her person is at work.

Mama 2014-5-21 2Mama needs a little extra TLC because she has diabetes. She’s on a special diet and requires a very low dose of insulin twice a day. She’s in great health otherwise, and is super easy to medicate. The vet says that perhaps over time she can be cured.

Regardless, she’s a low-key kitty that’s easy to care for. She’s house-trained, spayed and arrived at the shelter declawed. Mama will make someone a great pet, and give a lot of love in return!

Mama (SAS ID #13-12462) is being lavished with attention in a foster home, she is not at the Shelter. If you would like to meet her, please call the Foster Care Hotline at 206-684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Thank you!

Cosmo 2014-05-15 2 Meet Cosmo!

Hi there, I’m a goofy, young, dude with a huge heart, and I want to share it with YOU! Everyone says I’m quite a catch.

I’m super friendly and affectionate – I will lean into you for pets like nobody’s business. I also like to play with toys and sometimes play fetch. I know my basic manners, like sit, down, and shake.

I’m super smart and a quick study. In just a few short days at my foster home, I learned how to go outside to go potty, how to “wait,” and am working hard on being a good leash walker!

Cosmo 2014-05-15 3I would love an active, dog-experienced person to adopt me. I’ll make the best companion! I’ve been a great running partner in my foster home, and I can’t wait to go hiking.

Since I’m so smart, I would really like it if my new person took me to training classes – I’m ready to soak up all the education and attention you can give me! Oh, did I mention that I’m pretty good at just chilling with you too?

Cosmo 2014-05-15 1My forever home will need to be cat free please, and I will do best with children that are 10+ years old, because I’m a little too big and rambunctious for smaller kids.

Thanks for considering me!

Cosmo (SAS ID #14-15000) is being adored in a foster home. If you would like to meet him, you must submit a Dog Adoption Application to SAS. Download the application and follow the instructions for submitting 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.

Meet Norman!

Norman 2014-5-8 2Norman is an adorable, white guinea pig with the cutest little black spot. He arrived at the shelter with another male piggie, but they didn’t get along very well and had to be separated. Norman is a little overwhelmed by life on his own, but he is very gentle and friendly once he’s drawn out of his shell. In addition to a new human family, Norman would really appreciate having a guinea pig companion to bond with, perhaps a spayed female.

Norman 2014-5-8 1Guinea pigs need a large flat-bottomed cage to live in, and should have an hour or more of supervised playtime daily for exercise and stimulation. It’s important to remember that guinea pigs cannot use an exercise wheel or ball.

Guinea pigs are social animals and do best when kept in pairs or small groups and enjoy spending time with their people too. Guinea pigs should be fed a high quality pellet, fresh leafy greens (low in calcium such as lettuce and parsley), and unlimited hay. Guinea pigs also require vitamin C supplement. An easy and delicious way to provide it is with a slice of orange or bell pepper daily.

Norman 2014-5-8 3There is a low fee to adopt a guinea pig from the Seattle Animal Shelter; however, you are expected to make a lifetime commitment to your adopted piggies.
