Find missing pets faster at new website
EVERETT — Rather than having to drive all the way to the Everett Animal Shelter, residents searching for their lost pets can now check online if their four-legged family members are being held at the Everett Animal Shelter.
The city just launched a lost and found website at http://www.everettwa.org/default.aspx?ID=256 (opens in new window).
The Everett Animal Shelter serves areas including Snohomish, Lynnwood and most of unincorporated Snohomish County in addition to Everett proper.
When an animal is taken into the shelter, information is logged into a system that automatically uploads it to the website. The information includes a snapshot of the animal as well as their gender, breed and estimated age.
If the pet’s name is known by the shelter, the pet’s actual name will appear below the photo of the animal. Otherwise, the shelter will post an alias name, so pet owners looking for their lost pet should not be discouraged if they see a photo of their pet with a different name.
The lost pet’s photo and information will appear on the website as soon as the pet is logged into the system.
If you are looking for a lost pet, the Everett Animal Shelter also recommends checking with local shelters often and filing a lost pet form with the shelter.
The shelter is at 333 Smith Island Rd. in Everett, and its phone number is 425-257-6000.
