Join us at Pioneer Pet Feed and Supply Saturday, June 1, to meet the critters. From 1 to 3pm, potential adopters can meet the many small animals available for adoption from the shelter, including rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, corn snakes and chickens. Pioneer Pet Feed and Supply is located at 87 ½ S Washington St. in Pioneer Square.
Volunteer small-animals specialist will be on hand to provide information about each animal’s characteristics and needs, demonstrate basic care and handling skills, and answer questions. Many of the critters at this event have been living with foster parents, who will be available to share information about the personality and habits of their foster critters, helping to make a perfect match!
If you are interested in adopting one of the critters you meet at the Cool City Pets Roadshow, come on down to the Seattle Animal Shelter to finalize the adoption. Adopters must be prepared to provide proper housing, food, water, toys and other materials necessary for the care and good health of the animal. The adoption fee for small animals ranges from $15 to $40 and includes:
- Certificate for free health exam with a local veterinarian
- Spay or neuter (rabbits and some guinea pigs)
- Microchip (rabbits)
