The recent flooding across the Puget Sound region has prompted the Seattle Humane Society to offer free emergency pet boarding to evacuees.

Owners can drop off animals at the Bellevue shelter, 13212 S.E. Eastgate Way, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day. Call the boarding department at 643-5960 or email the department at boarding@seattlehumane.org to schedule a drop off.

The nonprofit organization can shelter, feed and care for pets until conditions improve and owners can return home. Humane Society leaders offer free boarding during other emergencies as well.

Rain soaked the area Saturday and Sunday, and caused creeks and rivers to flood. The rain continued Monday, although many rivers in the area crested before then.

The local Humane Society has a long history of offering services to pet owners during natural disasters. The organization set up a shelter during ice and windstorms in 2006-07 to shelter pets and owners.
