Seattle Area Feline Rescue is located just north of Seattle at 20226 Ballinger Way NE, Shoreline, WA 98155. We are a non-profit, no-kill rescue, 501c3 #91-2041961. SAFe Rescue takes in homeless cats and kittens, gives them the care they need to recover, and finds them loving homes. 2,000 felines, including seniors and special needs cats, find homes at SAFe during a typical 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.
