SEATTLE — The Seattle Animal Shelter continues showcasing “cool city pets” for adoption every third Saturday of the month – this month on May 15.
Between the hours of 1 and 3 p.m., potential adopters can get acquainted with the many small animals available for adoption from the shelter, located at 2061 15th Ave. W., about a mile south of the Ballard Bridge. Available small animals include hamsters, gerbils, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats and mice.
Volunteer small-animal specialists will be on hand to help adopters find the right pet. They'll provide information about each animal’s characteristics and needs, demonstrate basic care and handling skills, and answer questions.
All ages are welcome, but children must be accompanied by an adult. Animals may be adopted by adults only. The adoption fee for small animals ranges from $5 to $25.
