Animal World On-Line is pleased to provide the following contact information on a variety of Western Washington services important to animal keepers and/or lovers.

We encourage you to take advantage of the services these organizations have to offer, and just as importantly, to support those that are non-profit so that they can continue to assist in the welfare of animals.

All shelters engage in adoption services. Many exist solely on funds collected for adopted animals. Please encourage everyone you know who is interested in acquiring an animal-friend to adopt from one of the
shelters listed on the "shelters" page.
