Cats & kittens adopted from MEOW have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, and dewormed and are current on vaccines. They also have been tested for FIV/FeLV. With adoption, you will receive a coupon for a free wellness exam, which is honored by most Seattle/King County Veterinarians, and one month of complimentary pet insurance.

The fee for dogs and puppies varies with the individual animal. Please see each dog listing for the name and number to contact about that animal, including the adoption fee.

Our adoptable pet listings are updated frequently. If you are interested in a particular cat or dog you've seen here, please go to our website to download a copy of our adoption application/questionnaire, fill it out and bring it to the shelter when you come to visit. When your application has been approved, you will be able to meet all our available animals. If you rent, please bring a copy of your rental agreement with you. If you have other cats, please bring a veterinarian's statement or recent account statement that shows all resident cats are up-to-date on vaccinations and have been FIV/FeLV tested.

MEOW is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of cats, kittens, and dogs in the greater Seattle area. MEOW provides safe and comfortable "foster homes" to abandoned or otherwise unwanted animals until permanent homes can be found. Most of the cats and kittens available for adoption are at the shelter. Those interested in adopting can visit them there. All available dogs are in foster homes. Please see each dog's listing for who to contact about that dog. If you do not reside in our area, we strongly encourage you to adopt from your local shelter or rescue group. Many small agencies struggle to place rescued animals, and they need your support.
