Mission Statement

Seattle Humane promotes the human-animal bond by saving and serving pets in need, regardless of age, circumstance, ability or geography.


Care We Provide

What sets Seattle Humane apart is that we are open-door shelter with no time limits. That means we accept every animal in need of our help - regardless of age, breed, or physical condition. We provide them with the care they deserve for as long as it takes us to find them a loving home. When pets are brought to us requiring medical attention, our veterinary team performs life-saving medical procedures. If a pet requires training to thrive in his or her new home, we provide it. Why? Because our mission is to save pets in need and find them a new loving home.


Admitting and Rescuing Pet

Seattle Humane accepts any owner surrendered animals utilizing intake appointments to allow our staff and volunteers to collect as much information as possible about the incoming pet. The appointments are scheduled on a first-call basis and are not based on the age or desirability of the animal. In the case of an emergency, animals will be admitted immediately. Seattle Humane houses stray animals for the city of Renton. At the end of the stray period, the animals are spayed or neutered and micro-chipped and made available for adoption.
