500 Homes. One Day: The Sixth Annual Statewide Shelter Open House October 7th

500 Homes. One Day. Join us for the sixth annual Statewide Shelter Open House on Saturday, October 7th. 

Come meet your match at the 6th Annual Statewide Shelter Open House, hosted by Pawsitive Alliance.

Over 30–and counting!–shelters in every region of the state are participating in this exciting event.

If you’re looking to add to your family, visit a participating shelter on October 7 — you just might meet the animal love of your life!

Handsome Hampton — his owner came into Seattle Area Feline Rescue looking for the oldest adoptable kitty and fell in love with him!

“Adoption is a key part of the solution to the pet homelessness issue,” said Tammy Halstead, Pawsitive Alliance Board Member and Vice President.

“By finding homes for as many as 500 pets in one day, we can make a serious dent in the number of animals in Washington shelters looking for a new home.”

Dozens of animal shelters across Washington State are participating in this special one-day event — visit Pawsitive Alliance’s website to see a full list on their event page and to find out the hours, activities, and promotions of each participating shelter.

You can also follow #shelteropenhouse during the event for exciting shelter updates and heartwarming adoption stories, like Hampton, a loving senior kitty who was adopted from Seattle Area Feline Rescue during last year’s Statewide Shelter Open House!

Pawsitive Alliance would like to thank the Shelter Open House Sponsors:
