Upcoming Events

For pets of the homeless, it’s cold on the streets of Seattle and they need your help.

The Animal Medical Center of Seattle wants to help by collecting new or gently used dog sweaters and jackets. We will have a donation bin at our hospital and because we’re always open, you can drop off your donation anytime. We’ll pass these donations to the Doney Coe Pet Clinic who will ensure your kind gesture will reach a cold animal in need.
