Adoptable Pets at the Seattle Animal Shelter
He’s a younger boy with so much love to give. He’s a big sweetheart but will need help with basic training and learning commands. His foster parents have taught him ‘sit’, and are working on ‘down’ and ‘heel’, and they’re helping him feel more comfortable in his crate. Please note prior dog experience is required to adopt Licorice. He absolutely LOVES being outside, rolling in the grass. He’s especially fond of squeaky toys and tennis balls. Endless kisses will be yours, and Licorice will want to be where ever you are!
He would thrive best in a household where someone is home a lot or normally works from home or with a big family with plenty of people to keep him company. With his love for the outdoors and playful puppy energy he will require a house with a fenced yard. He has met other dogs while at the shelter and has done very well! He may do okay with cats given an appropriate slow introduction. His ideal home will be one with only adults or older children, 16+.
He’s a cuddly kitty that would love a nice space to nap while his owners are away or busy, but he’ll lay in your lap to help you unwind. Sometimes he even likes to chat with his humans. He can be talkative and meow when he knows its time for food! He has been sharing his foster home with a dog and he doesn’t really mind him all that much, they “boop” noses and even share a water bowl.
Since Rodrigo has kidney disease, he needs two medications that can be put on top of his food. He has great litter box manners and has not caused any ruckus in his foster home. He likes napping a lot but also enjoys sitting in your lap while you work, getting pets and chin scratches so he can show you his loud purr. He’s hoping to find his new home so he can give you all his love!
Meet Murphy! He’s a very handsome young, gentle-hearted, male house-rabbit with a penchant for flipping things over! Murphy is looking for his new forever home where he can love his family as they will love him! Murphy will need an adult only rabbit experienced home due to some ongoing health issues.
Meet Gus, a handsome boy guinea pig! He’s a young guinea pig looking for his new forever home! You are expected to make a lifetime commitment to your guinea pig, and they should be treated as an integral part of the family. The primary caregiver must be a responsible adult, and young children should always be supervised when interacting with your guinea pig and instructed on proper approach and handling.
Guinea pigs like lots of roaming space. The larger the cage, the more active they can be! Use plenty of lining material like paper bedding, or scraps of fleece. Guinea pigs eat timothy hay. Provide fresh water every day. Guinea pigs also need hay-based pellets that are vitamin C fortified. Fresh green salads are leafy greens. Your guinea pig will need its nails trimmed twice a month and an annual vet check-up. Guinea pigs typically live six to nine years.
She is sweet, curious, snuggly & vocal. She adores head tickles almost 100% of the time. She will let you know if she wants her chest and belly rubbed. She is interested in plants and the dirt they are potted in, it’s her only odd trait. Her litter box etiquette is perfect. She loves the simple things. Chasing string, sitting on her perch watching the birds & squirrels and napping in favorite areas of the house.
She’ll do best in a quieter environment with no dogs or young children. Another cat or teenagers might be ok, but her adjustment might take longer.
Kitty Quirks: she loves to move her water dish around with her paw & then delicately dip her paw in to pick the water off. So. Cute. She loves having catnip in various places. She will hide under our bed or in the shower occasionally, but she comes soon after you call her. She is such a good girl. A little patience & quiet and she’ll be a lap cat soon enough.
Posie is a fun-loving blind rat terrier who loves to explore (with her ears and nose) and cuddle. She will bump around new places to learn the layout and does well following voice commands. She enjoys resting on plush beds and couches, but will awaken at the smell of any type of food. She does well on walks, but you’ll need to keep her on a short leash to guide her. She is potty trained, friendly with her foster brother, and only speaks when she’s stuck somewhere or smells her meal about to be served. Overall, she’s a goofy girl with high-spirits despite not being able to see.
Once you meet this sweet girl you will want to take this “pocketful of Posie” home. She may not have eyes to see but her radar ears, sharp memory and directions from her humans allow her to navigate and learn her way around smaller spaces. This happy go lucky girl is sure to make your day a little brighter with her pep in her step and her love of cuddles. She would not mind a mellow dog companion to keep her happy as long as her food and her treats stay hers.
To meet Posie please send a completed dog adoption application to firstname.lastname@example.org
Meet Pearl–She’s a smart, sassy feline with heart of gold. This sweet lady isn’t afraid to tell you what she wants! Time and patience is all you need to earn her trust – but once she feels comfortable, she’ll be your best friend. She is curious and loves playing with a laser light or a feather toys. She likes a large clean litter box or two and lots of indoor environmental enrichment!
Pearl is a brown, gold, and black tabby with beautiful green/yellow eyes. Pearl is on a diet, so she will be happiest when kept on her current food routine. She’ll thrive in a calm, stable, cat-savvy home where she can be the queen of the house – no young kids, dogs, or other cats.
Note: If Pearl becomes overly stressed or agitated (by visitors, a change in routine, or triggers her foster parent is still trying to figure out), then there’s a chance she might pee outside the box. Pearl requires patience, a consistent routine, and help staying calm and relaxed – with lots of fun things to do and play with. It is recommended that if you are going to have a change in routine or change something in the environment that you gradually introduce her to the change so she can feel more comfortable and confident with her surroundings.
