The Seattle Humane Society brings people and pets together for lifelong relationships.
The Seattle Humane Society, founded in 1897, is a private, nonprofit animal welfare organization. We are proud to serve the people and animals of King County with a variety of programs including adoptions, veterinary services, dog training classes, a pet food bank, and humane education for children of all ages. Through our outreach, advocacy, and services, we strive to ensure that animal companionship is accessible to all. The Humane Society of Seattle/King County (also known as the Seattle Humane Society) is private and receives no local, state or federal support.
Seattle Humane has no affiliation at all with King County Animal Care & Control shelters (Kent and Crossroads) nor with Seattle Animal Shelter. They are municipal shelters supported by your tax dollars. We are not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) or with the American SPCA (ASPCA). Humane societies and SPCAs are all independent.
