Please check out the volunteer opportunities at the Everett shelter.
If you’d like to foster before actually making the lifetime commitment to an animal, this is a great way to see if a specific size, age or breed of dog is right for you.
It is also a way to save a life even if you can’t commit to a lifetime with an animal.
If you live somewhere that you can’t own an animal, spending time at the shelter will give you all the dog or cat fixes you need for a lifetime.
If you can’t walk, foster, or volunteer you can reach out to your community or work partners to gather much needed donations for the shelter’s animals.
Also remember that even if you aren’t close to Everett’s shelter or you don’t agree with their kill philosophy (which has gotten much better with the new shelter manager) there are lots of local rescues and no kill shelters that could also use your help.
