Humane Society adoptions hit record

Thanks to your generous support, our dedicated volunteers and some creative promoting — we found loving homes for 704 pets in August. That’s an all-time record for pet adoptions in a single month in Seattle Humane’s 116-year history! The record-breaking month kicked off with Catapalooza, an adoption extravaganza, with waived adoption fees for cats one year and older and reduced fees for kittens — resulting in 203 adoptions in one weekend. A winning combination of adoption discounts and support from our animal-loving community made August a smashing success.
