Seattle Pets Who Need A Home

12 min read

Do you want to add to your family and give back to the Seattle community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. During the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Washington, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new fur child is at Dog Gone Seattle, where Beans the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in permanent homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
