The Everett Animal Shelter, the County's contracting facility for animal shelter services, is located at 333 Smith Island Road, Everett, and can be contacted at 425-257-6000. The shelter is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed on observed holidays.
The Everett Animal Shelter recommends owners visit the shelter in person and look through their "strays in the shelter book" as well as their "found pets not at the shelter book." They also recommend visiting their website daily for updates on new arrivals to the shelter and submitting a lost pet report to include a photo of your pet.
Confine the animal if it is safe to do so.
If the pet has a Snohomish County pet license tag, use our pet license look-up tool to get the name and phone number of the owner so you can reunite them.
To have a confined stray picked up by an Animal Control Officer, call 425-388-3440 Option 9.
