FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 15, 2012

A record-setting 277 pets were adopted into loving homes during Seattle Humane Society’s free pet Adoption Blitz! The buzz for the free adoption event also brought crowds to the shelter a day earlier, helping us provide homes for more than 300 dogs, cats and critters in a four-day period.

Adoption fees were waived on all pets on Seattle Humane’s adoption floor and website Oct. 12-14. On the first day of the event, 111 pets were adopted, setting an all-time high for the most pets adopted from the shelter in a single day!

More than 1,000 people visited Seattle Humane over the weekend to meet hundreds of kittens, puppies, dogs, cats, and critters available for no-fee adoption. Adoption highlights included 105 kittens placed into homes of their own as well as 34 fabulous senior and long-timer cats and dogs. The oldest pets adopted during the three-day promotion were Dezzie, a beautiful 13-year-old torbie cat and Charlie, a 16-year-old Sheltie mix who was adopted by his foster family.

Every dog and cat adopted from Seattle Humane has been vaccinated, microchipped, health-checked and spayed/neutered. All dogs are temperament-tested and most dog adoptions come with a six-week obedience training course. All dog and cat adoptions also include one month of free pet insurance.

Thanks to Seattle Humane’s highly skilled adoption staff, dedicated volunteers, and our animal-loving community, the Adoption Blitz was an unforgettable record-setting success!
