Are you looking to bring home a new family member?
Consider adopting a new friend! There are many fantastic pets out there in animal shelters and foster homes waiting for their forever family. Many organizations adopt out dogs and cats, but did you know that some organizations like Seattle Animal Shelter also sometimes have rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, turtles, chinchillas, chameleons, and even the occasional tarantula available for adoption?
