The city’s dog adoption process has been criticized by animal rights activists and is now being criticized for failing to protect dogs.
The Seattle Times is reporting that since January, dog adoption has fallen far short of the number of adoptions that were required under a law passed in 2016.
Advocates have accused the city of failing to adopt enough dogs, saying that a lack of proper records, as well as lack of training, lead to a culture of neglect.
“The city is not taking this seriously,” said Amy Shue, executive director of Animal Defenders Alliance.
“If you want to get a dog adopted, you need to show up.
That’s the rule.”
Since January, Seattle has been forced to adopt about 5,000 dogs, but the city’s adoption rate has dropped to around 7,000 per year, according to the city.
City Councilmember Lisa Herbold, a Democrat, has been pushing the city to adopt a new law to make sure that every dog is considered an adopter, but advocates say this is not a practical solution because Seattle already has enough dogs.
Some people have already left the city, saying they no longer want to adopt dogs.

One of those is that many people are not willing to adopt because they are afraid that the foster dog will bite them or that they will lose their pets.
According to a study published in the journal Animal Behavior and Performance , only about half of foster dogs were adopted out of foster homes in Seattle.
That number drops to 27 percent if a person has an emergency or has been in a hospital.
Other factors include that a foster dog has been sterilized, that they are at least 5 months older than the person they are adopted to, and that they have been tested to make certain that the dogs are not infected with rabies.
The number of dog adoptions in Seattle has also fallen dramatically since January.
According to a recent survey of Seattle residents by Seattle Public Schools, just over half of those who voted for Mayor Ed Murray in November 2016 are still living with their dogs.
That includes almost 60 percent of people who voted in the citywide election last fall.
