Time running out for pet license amnesty

Wednesday, April 24, 2013


Cat and dog owners can buy new tags, or bring tags up to date, without penalty through April 30

Time is running out to make your dog or cat legal. Through April 30, cat and dog owners can bring expired tags up to date, or purchase new licenses for unlicensed pets, without additional fees or penalties that can add up to hundreds of dollars. Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC), is participating in the license amnesty.

“A licensed pet is far more likely to be returned to its owner if it gets lost,” said Dr. Gene Mueller, manager of Regional Animal Services. “Plus, your license fee helps us provide a vital safety net for unwanted or neglected animals in our area, and also helps us adopt thousands of homeless pets to new, loving homes every year.”

Pet owners residing in RASKC Regional Partner Cities of Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, and Kenmore are required to license with King County.


Pet owners can go to the King County website then click on “License Your Pet” to renew a pet license online. Licenses are also sold at our City Halls, and many QFC stores, For a full list of pet licensing locations, see the website.

And what is the useless and toothless King County/Regional Animal Control going to do if you don't renew or register your license? I know of a special person with multiple off leash, unlicensed, dangerous dog violations that both the City of Shoreline and King County do absolutely nothing about. I do have a licensed pet, but honestly, these are meaningless threats.
