The Seattle Animal Shelter and Lynnwood Honda invite you to a free weekend barbecue and to “Fall in Love with a Pre-owned Pet,” this Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. at Lynnwood Honda, 22020 Highway 99, Edmonds. Come by for the barbecue and meet adoptable dogs, cats and critters; learn about shelter volunteer programs, including fostering pets in your home; and find out how to obtain a pet license or low-cost spay/neuter surgery.
This event kicks off the Seattle Animal Shelter’s fall promotion, which runs Sept. 27-Oct. 12, offering pet adoptions for only $15, plus applicable two-year license fees. Both in-shelter and foster animals at least 6 months old qualify for the special pricing, although some high-interest animals are excluded.
“At the shelter and in our foster care program we have incredible animals in need of a forever home,” said Don Jordan, Seattle Animal Shelter director. “We hope this special price encourages folks to consider adopting shelter pets. If you have room in your home and your heart, this is a great opportunity to save a life.”
With regular adoption prices ranging from $15 to $145 (plus applicable license fees), this promotion offers up to $130 in savings. The adoption fee includes:
- Certificate for free health exam at local veterinarians
- Initial vaccinations
- Spay or neuter
- Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency virus testing (cats only)
- Two cans of food
For Seattle residents, a two-year pet license must be purchased with each adoption. The license fee is $27 for cats and $37 for dogs. Critter adoptions do not require licensing.
The adoption discount is made possible with funding from the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation.
The Seattle Animal Shelter is open Tuesday through Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. for adoptions and licensing. It is located at 2061 15th Ave. W. For more information, call 206-386-7387 (PETS), or view animals available for adoption online at www.seattleanimalshelter.org.
