Animal control removes dog from Shoreline home

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

King County Animal Control Officers removed Lucky the dog from his home on Wednesday morning around 10:00 a.m. after he was voluntarily surrendered by his owner.

Regional Animal Services acted on a tip when neighbors called the pet hotline on Thursday, and officers responded by visiting the home for the first time that same afternoon. After posting notices at the home requesting the owners contact Regional Animal Services and not receiving a response, officers applied for a search warrant to gain access to the property, and received the warrant around 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon. Midday on Tuesday, the owner contacted field officers to begin a conversation about possibly surrendering the dog. The dog was surrendered Wednesday morning and taken to the Kent Animal Shelter where he will receive a full veterinary exam.

This case is one of 36 active cruelty/neglect investigations open in King County at the moment, and officers are responding to an additional 170 animal-related calls for assistance from the public. Pet licensing revenue partially pays for Regional Animal Services in King County, and when residents purchase a pet license, they contribute to funds that pay for cruelty and neglect investigations such as this.
