Q: I already purchased my brick/paver, but have not sent in my inscription. When is the deadline to submit my personalized message?

Q: What happens if I miss the deadline for brick/paver orders or inscription submissions?
A: We will send you a reminder email to help ensure that you get your personalized inscription submitted by August 1 so it will be included in the annual order. If you do not submit your personalized inscription before the final order is placed with the brick vendor, you will still have an opportunity to have your brick or paver installed the following year.
Q: I have purchased my brick/paver and need to submit or change an inscription. How can I do this?

A: Each donation of $500 or $1,000 must be paid for completely by the donor. While matching gifts cannot be used toward the reservation of a brick or paver, we welcome these additional gifts to support Seattle Humane’s new facility.
Q: When will I be able to see my brick or paver installed?
A: The brick and paver unveiling breakfast will be held on the last Saturday of September annually. You can expect to receive an invitation in late summer after the order is placed. You can come view your brick or paver any time after installation.
