Tails of Seattle: A pets blog
Mother's Day goes to the animals
Seattle Humane Society wants to make Mother's Day memorable by offering moms 50 percent off the adoption costs of any pet at least 1 year old. The offer is good only on Sunday, May 13.
Seattle Humane will be open for Mother's Day adoptions 11 a.m.-6 p.m. at 13212 S.E. Eastgate Way, Bellevue. Adoptions include microchip ID, vaccinations, health check, spay/neuter, collar with identification tag and 30 days of prepaid health insurance. For details about adoptions and fees, go to http://www.seattlehumane.org/.
