Seattle Humane promotes the human-animal bond by saving and serving pets in need, regardless of age, ability, circumstance or geography.
Founded in 1897, they offer pet adoption, humane education, a Pet Food Bank, and spay/neuter services to low-income pet owners. Through outreach, advocacy, and services, Seattle Humane is dedicated to saving and serving pets in need.
What sets Seattle Humane apart is that they are an open-door shelter with no time limits. That means they accept every animal in need of help — regardless of age, breed, or physical condition. They provide them with the care they deserve for as long as it takes us to find them a loving home.
As a result of their efforts, in fiscal year 2016/17 they cared for nearly 7,000 pets.
Hug a Tree is an initiative that is completely funded and executed by Seattle’s Mortgage Broker. Once per year our team ventures out into the Cascades and responsibly plants one sapling for every mortgage we closed.

Our mortgage origination process uses an average of 7 sheets per transaction.
