Shelter Services

Everett Animal Services operates the Everett Animal Shelter and Everett Animal Control. We work to return lost animals to owners, provide shelter and care to lost or unwanted animals and find new homes for adoptable pets. We also license animals within the Everett city limits.

Everett Animal Services cares for nearly 5,000 animals each year..

  5. Volunteering & Fostering

    The volunteer program at Everett Animal Shelter (EAS) is highly structured and is geared toward finding volunteers who are a great fit in helping us meet the needs of the animals in our care.

  6. Surrendering a Pet to the Shelter

    Surrendering your pet means it becomes the property of the city and we charge a rehoming fee to help cover the costs for sheltering the animal.

  7. Licenses

    Your license number issued to your pet will be good for the life of your pet, but you will need to renew your pet’s license yearly. A microchip is a permanent ID can be read by a special scanner at most vet clinics and animal shelters.
