The adoption process is very specific. Here is how the city says it will go…
The process for anyone interested in adopting the dogs:
Download an adoption application from the City of Everett website or pick one up from the front lobby of the shelter. Applications will be located in a basket on the “Stray” table. Applications on the City of Everett website are here.
Complete the application and mail, fax or drop it off at the shelter. Any applications received electronically (via email) will not be accepted. Beginning Friday morning, pictures and biographies of available dogs can be viewed at: www.petango.com. There will be no in-person viewing.
Everett Animal Shelter
333 Smith Island Rd
Everett, WA 98201
Applicants must identify one or two dogs (by name or animal ID number) and complete the entire application. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
All adoption applications must be received at the shelter by 5 p.m. Tuesday Aug. 2. Any applications received after that time will not be considered.
Applicants selected will then be contacted to come in to meet the dog they are interested in adopting, determine if the dog is compatible and finalize the adoption process.
