Pet adoptions at the Seattle Humane Society reached a record 5,668 last year.

The nonprofit organization serving Issaquah and King County also returned 376 pets to owners or partner rescue groups.

The shelter in Bellevue reached a milestone 97.2 percent life-saving rate — among the highest in the nation for comparable shelters.

“We save lives and bring people and pets together, but we don’t do it alone,” Seattle Humane CEO David Loewe said in a statement. “Our community stands beside us every step of the way and we couldn’t do it without them.”

The organization’s clinic also performed more than 7,300 surgical procedures last year, including spaying and neutering for 2,606 pets through reduced-fee programs.
