Seattle Humane Society moves to state-of-the-art new facility

It's moving day for dozens of cats and dogs at Seattle Humane. They're settling into a new state-of-the-art adoption center, a big upgrade from their old home.

The Seattle Humane Society is on the move. The shelter headed to a brand new facility on Tuesday.

Seattle Humane's fundraising team spent seven years raising more than $28 million. Construction for the state-of-the-art building took nearly two years. 

The new three-story shelter, adoption center, and veterinary teaching hospital will have the capacity to serve 10,000 animals every year.

Bellevue has been home to the city's shelter since the 1970s. The old facility will be demolished when everyone is moved over.

Prospective families can adopt animals when the new shelter opens on August 16.
