The Everett Animal Shelter is asking that anyone who finds a lost or abandoned dog or cat in the area of the Snohomish County mudslide bring the animal to the shelter, which is working closely with rescue groups in hopes of reuniting the pets with their families.
The shelter, located at 333 Smith Island Road, is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The animal shelter is working with the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management and Red Cross as the primary animal-welfare organization for lost or found animals from the mudslide, according to a news release. Rescue groups are providing information about missing dogs and cats on the animal shelter’s Facebook page to broaden the shelter’s reach.
The 72-hour stray hold does not apply to animals from the mudslide. The animals will be held as long as necessary to connect them with their owners.
Anyone with information about a lost or abandoned animal is asked to contact the shelter at 425-257-6000.
