The Everett Animal Shelter is taking in lost animals from the Oso Slide. Here’s information set out this afternoon…

The Everett Animal Shelter is leading the efforts in providing animal related services and resources to the Oso residents affected by the slide. The shelter is working with Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management and Red Cross as the primary animal welfare organization for people with lost or found animals from the Oso disaster.

People or businesses that have found a lost or abandoned dog or cat in the area of the slide are asked to bring the animal to the Everett Animal Shelter or to contact the shelter at 425-257-6000 to provide information about the animals. If they need assistance with transporting the animals contact Snohomish County Animal Control at 425-388-3440.

The shelter is also working closely with other rescue groups in the area who will cross-post from the Everett Animal Shelter Facebook page to broaden the effort of reuniting pets with their families. The shelter requests that all animal related information pertaining to the Oso disaster and all social media sites direct people to the Everett Animal Shelter. The shelter is the first place people in Snohomish County go when looking for their pets.

At the shelter animals receive quality care, food and vet care as well as day long attention from the dedicated staff and volunteers. The 72 hour stray hold will not apply to animals from this disaster, they will be held as long as necessary to reunite them with their family. The shelter is open 7 days a week, 10am to 5pm and is located at 333 Smith Island Rd, Everett, WA 98201.

The Everett Animal Shelter is also collecting and distributing donations of food for the victims of the Oso and Darrington area.

    We are wondering how to donate and what is needed for the animals in the shelter. We thought that maybe the shelter needed donations of money, food, etc. for the extra care of the animal victims. Where should we direct our inquiries or a point of contact info? Thanks!
