Seattle Area Feline Rescue is located on the border of Seattle and Shoreline, at 14717 Aurora Ave. N, Shoreline, WA 98133. We are a non-profit, no-kill rescue.

SAFe Rescue takes in homeless cats and kittens, gives them the care they need to recover, and finds them loving homes. Over 1,600 felines, including seniors and special needs cats, find homes here each year as people in search of new friends visit our welcoming storefront Adoption Center. An extensive network of community volunteers and foster families helps the rescue carry out its mission and save more lives.

What we do

For the homeless cats and kittens we take in, the Adoption Center is the first stop on their journey to a new life. They may arrive frightened, traumatized, or in need of medical care. They may not know what it means to be loved and cared for by humans—but the Adoption Center is designed to show them that care from the moment they arrive. The exam room allows shelter staff and volunteers to assess their needs in a quiet area. The quarantine enclosures keep them safe from disease until they receive their vaccines. The safe, comfortable adoption enclosures help their purring personalities shine. Then, it happens! Each kitty has its special day when someone visits the center and falls in love. They meet their perfect people in one of the adoption rooms, and then they go home forever.

Our Mission: To save the lives of homeless, neglected and at-risk cats and kittens by spaying and neutering, by providing safe refuge and rehabilitation, and by finding felines permanent, stable, homes.
