Negative experience 5/14/2012

Very negative experience. Filled-out the adoption papers, came back the next day and was told dog not availabe; couldn't believe it b/c was told he was availabe just the other day, thus questioned further and was literally given a dozen excuses. Finally said "okay", would like to adopt another one I had my eye on but was bascially told by Adoption Assistant Tivo neither dog I wanted was available for me. Tivo plays God and is the one that decides who gets what. And in my case she decided I was too old (I'm in my 40s), not active enough for either one (I'm a bit overweight), and not the right color skin (I'm American Indian). This despite the fact I've been the proud owner/mother of 10 dogs throughout my lifetime, have 3 acres of gorgeous green backyard, frontyard, 3 lovely doghouses (left over from my beloved companions that died of old age this past decade), brand new beds, bowls, collars, leashes, honestly everything a dog could ask for and need (as God is my witness). And I do not scimp on buying them anything they need, as I have no children of my own, so my dogs are my children. Dr. Heather Stewart of Carousel Veterinary Services is my veterinarian and Mrs. Jeannie Chow of King County Animal License Department said me and my sister have the cleanest house she's ever visited and that we love our dogs (she's the one that comes to your house if you own 3 or more dogs for inspection annually). Finally, after 8 months of grieving for my beloved Jojo, I decided I wanted to adopt another dog, but was turned away by Adoption Assistant Tivo. In the end, she broke my heart, she broke my heart.... more

The King County Humane Society Shelter-in Factoria 8/22/2006

Over the years, we've adopted two cats and a dog from the Humane Society shelter, near Factoria. The staff there is mostly volunteer and incredibly helpful...and patient. We usually "interview" a lot of animals in the private rooms they have there. This gives you a chance to get at least a brief read on the personality of each animal before you make the big step and decide which one to bring home. The shelter is clean and seems to attract a lot of people ready to take on a new pet. We've found that it is best to get there just after opening time in order to avoid crowds and long lines. Like many shelters these days, The Humane Society no longer euthanizes animals which don't find a family within a certain time frame; instead, they circulate them to other shelters in the hopes that a good match will be found. This makes me happy. By the way, you can see a lot of the animals they have up for adoption at their web site: www.seattlehumane.org/ more

The Humane Society may be able to help you 6/19/2006

Well, your pet, anyway. We have used one of their services - long story. We found them very helpful and efficient. They do offer low-cost vet services, but I am not sure what limitations there are on this. Here is their website: http://www.seattlehumane.org/clinic.shtml . more

Helpful people, Lovely animals 3/18/2006

I should warn you that I have a bias towards sheltered dogs. But sometimes they showcase even pure breds, in which the family just had to give up. This shelter feeds many of the animals through donated foods and to adopt my dog, I had to meet with a trainer, and pay $100. On the visit, they display sheets with the animals specs on it: temperament, weight, gender, age, history. You can schedule to meet and greet with a dog you have interest in and take your buddy home the next day if they are neutered/spayed already. That is the only slight problem. To prevent any future abandoned pups/kittens, it is policy to neuter/spay before you can take your pet home. Not choice there. Seattlehumane.org displays many of the animals and keeps its website pretty up to date. There is no pressure but really, you can tell the workers would like to provide the animals with a safe/ happy home. more

Great experience 3/2/2006

We had a great experience getting our dog from the Humane Society for Seatte/King County. First of all, they keep their website and answering machine messages VERY up to date. We checked their website, and after driving out there we learned that our dog's profile had only been up for a few hours when we saw it. Staff members were helpful and easy to talk to. We took our dog home the same day we met him, and they provided all the paperwork they had for him--even vet documents from the previous owner. They also were honest about why his previous family had brought him for re-adoption. Additionally, their prices were fair and reasonable. more
