While we typically think that it’s only dogs who need rescuing, the unfortunate truth is that cats are often in search of homes too.

Rather than shop, opt to adopt a cat from one of Seattle’s many shelters.

Many of the cats in shelters come from homes that couldn’t give them enough care or were saved from the streets. Regardless of where they’re from, they’re all wonderful animals in need of their forever home.

Here are five shelters in and around Seattle to adopt your next furry friend:
