Adoption Policies

At the Everett Animal Shelter we do our best to ensure animals get placed into the right homes, with the right family who can provide for the pet for the rest of its life. In order to best place our animals, we require:

  • Potential adopters complete an adoption application. If approved, adopters can then interact with the animal they wish to adopt. It is best for all members of the household to meet the animal prior to going home.
  • Renters bring rental pet policy at time of adoption. Not having the rental pet policy available may delay or nullify an adoption.

Animals are eligible to go home right away, so be prepared for your new animal to leave with you.

Note: Shelter staff reserve the right to deny any adoption.

- Adult cats (over 6 months): $50
- Kittens (6 months and under): $125
