Seattle Animal Shelter Celebrates Day of Service with Community Pet Supply Drive  

The Seattle Animal Shelter, a division of the City’s Department of Finance and Administrative Services, is proud to join Mayor Harrell’s call for a One Seattle Day of Service and is doing so through a pet supply drive that will connect Seattle pets and their owners with critical resources. Founded over 50 years ago, the shelter promotes safety and animal welfare through community engagement, resources, sheltering, adoption, a spay/neuter clinic and free community pet vaccination clinics.

The shelter created a Day of Service supply wish list to highlight the items most critically needed by pets in its care and by members of the community who visit the shelter’s monthly and free community pet vaccination clinics.

People can support this effort by purchasing an item on the online wish list, donating online directly to the shelter, or by dropping off items from the wish list at the City’s Ballard, Southwest and Southeast Customer Service Centers. Online donations provided directly to the shelter can be used to address the most urgent needs.

“Seattle pets are fortunate to be part of a city that is pet-friendly, inclusive and supportive. The care we provide to pets at the shelter would not be possible without the support and contributions of the community—whether it’s our dedicated fosters and volunteers who give so generously of their time and open their homes, or community members who support us through donations,” said Esteban Rodriguez, division director of the Seattle Animal Shelter.  

People are invited to make their donations now through May 18, when thousands of Seattleites will come together for the Mayor’s One Seattle Day of Service. The One Seattle Day of Service turns the values behind Mayor Harrell’s vision for One Seattle – inclusion, cooperation, and service into shared action and improvement for our City. This year the City has partnered with over 70 groups to host events.
