We cover the Cities of Lacey, Tumwater, Olympia, and unincorporated Thurston County.
Our adoptions are by SAME DAY appointment only. Tue-Sat, call 360-352-2510 after 8am to schedule your visit to meet the pet.
Applications are available at the Shelter after you visit the animal and decide that you're the right fit for each other.
Staff will review your application. If you don't own your home, we will need to call and talk to the landlord/property owner.
