Everett Animal Shelter is an open-admission shelter committed to providing care and comfort to lost, homeless, abused, and neglected pets in our community. EAS unites and supports pets and their people through adoption, lost-pet reunions and community resources.


Everett Animal Shelter (EAS) is an open admission shelter which means we do not turn any animal away. We take in stray animals, owner surrender pets and animals that have been seized by law enforcement as part of cruelty/investigation cases from 16 jurisdictions. Often the pets that come to us have been turned away at other shelters due to space, behavior or health challenges. EAS does not euthanize healthy or adoptable animals for space and there are no time limits. The shelter's live release rate is above 90%. All animals are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and given any other care they need while they are with us. In 2022, our veterinarian staff performed 3247 spay and neuter surgeries and we cared for more than 3500 animals. Your donations provide comfort, extraordinary veterinary care, special-diet food, vaccines and so much more for the cats, dogs and critters in our community who have nowhere else to turn. 

Meet Merc

Merc was brought in Monday, April 17th by a community member after they witnessed him being hit by a car. His hind leg is so badly broken it will need to be amputated as soon as possible. Our team is managing his pain and making him as comfortable as they can.

Despite the immense pain Merc is in, he has been friendly and kind to every stranger he's met. We don't know how he ended up alone on the streets but we do know he has a long road ahead. Merc is a large dog weighing in at 120 pounds and is 8 years old. His amputation recovery will take time as he learns how to move his large body with 3 legs.  He's also suffering from mental trauma which could take months to overcome.   

Merc needs time to heal and you can make a donation to his care, and the care of all our homeless pets, to ensure he receives the care he deserves to thrive. 

Meet Garfield

Garfield found himself in our care in April when his owner surrendered him because he wasn't using his litter box correctly.

Garfield arrived very thin and dehydrated and in need of dental work. Garfield is 12 years old and deserves more than he's been given including a loving home in his golden years that can provide reliable veterinary care.

Our veterinarian team is running tests to determine if Garfield has any underlying conditions contributing to his litter box issues and poor body condition. 

You can make a donation to Garfield’s care, and the care of all our homeless pets, to ensure he receives the care he deserves to thrive.
