From Regional Animal Service of King County
It’s that time of year again when kids everywhere plead for a new furry friend. If this is the year you believe they’re ready for the responsibility, then you may need help naming it, and you might be wondering how to keep it safe.
The Regional Animal Service of King County (RASKC) and Metropolitan King County Council Vice Chair Reagan Dunn are teaming up again to bring you answers!
“Licensing your pet not only helps to protect your pet if it ever becomes lost, it also helps fund the life-saving work of Regional Animal Services of King County,” said Dunn. “Our pet registry awareness efforts contributed to a 10 percent spike in animal registrations last year. I’m hoping to see similar results this year”
RASKC serves nearly one million residents living in 25 cities and unincorporated communities throughout King County. This year’s top ten pet names came from more than 27,000 pets that were registered in King County.
RASKC has a shelter in Renton, but Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, and Kenmore contract with PAWS in Lynnwood for shelter services. If your pet is missing, contact PAWS.
Pet licenses are sold at city halls and the Shoreline District courthouse.
