Did you lose a pet?


The Everett Animal Shelter holds stray animals for 72 hours to allow owners a chance to find their lost pets. If the animal is not claimed in that time period, it then becomes the property of the Everett Animal Shelter. Once the stray hold is up the animals rarely go out for adoption right away. There are many reasons why the animal may not be available immediately. They may need spay/neuter surgery or some other medical attention. They may need a behavior assessment and a plan to address any behavior issues.

Animals who are available for adoption are on the "adoptable pets" page of our website.

Owners who do come into the shelter to claim lost pets must provide proof of ownership at the time of redemption. There are fees associated with reclaiming a pet. 

It is your responsibility to be diligent in finding your pet.

We highly recommend you:
• Check this website every day
• Come into the shelter and look through our “Strays in the Shelter book.” Pictures, descriptions and names may not match your pet exactly; stray pets with no identification are assigned temporary names upon Intake.
• Come into the shelter and look through our “Found Pets not at the shelter book.” These pets are not in the shelter and will not be on our website. This book contains descriptions and sometimes photos of animals who have been found by members of the public who are keeping these animals in their homes while they look for the owner.
• Check with local veterinarians, other rescue groups in your area, place ads online at Pet Finder, craigslist, FidoFinder, and put up signs in your neighborhood. 

Everett Animal Services provides lost and found reports for public viewing only. EAS is not liable for information contained herein or for disposition of animals that are not claimed by their owners in person within 72 hours. EAS staff will contact owners of animals wearing traceable identification.

Lost and found reports are kept on file for approximately four (4) weeks and are not returned to the reporting party. EAS is not responsible for any photographs or other items attached to the report. Thank you for your effort to help an animal in need.
