DEAN RUTZ / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Katelyn Rainsford, 13, left, and sister Jackie, 16, visiting from Chicago, stop Monday to give 6-year-old pit bull Freddy a little love outside the American Humane Association's Red Star Rescue rig on Seattle Center. The rig was in town to promote its rescue operations, which the association says have saved more than 70,000 animals. Visitors are welcome to explore an interactive exhibit about the program.

The 82-foot vehicle has full veterinary services and was most recently deployed during Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast.

Sisters Soffia and Julia Gaw, 7 and 5 respectively join their mother, Akiko in making a donation to the American Humane Society's Red Star Rescue. Josh Cary, Operations Specialist for Red Star America, runs the 82-foot rig which made a stop at Seattle Center Monday to promote its rescue operations that the AHA says has saved more than 70,000 animals from natural and man made disasters. Co-sponsor of the tour, Foster Farms, recently earned humane certification from the AHA - the first poultry producer to earn the distinction.
