The shelter also took in about a dozen cats that were flown in from California and about 100 more animals are set to come in this week.

Seattle Humane’s staff said its move into a new $30 million facility in Bellevue, Washington, helps them in taking in more animals. The facility opened in December 2017.
“Now that we are in our new facility we have the ability to go beyond Washington and help overcrowding in shelters that may have been affected by natural disasters,” Amanda Anderson, public relations specialist with Seattle Humane, said.
Seattle Humane adopts out about 7,000 animals a year. The goal is to reach 10,000 soon.
