Lake Forest Park partners with King County for pet licensing and animal control

Monday, October 23, 2017

The City of Lake Forest Park contracts with Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) for animal control and pet licensing services.

While police officers will always respond to complaints or issues involving domestic animals, RASKC is responsible for follow-up and investigations.

In order to pay for these services, pet licensing fees are diverted to the City to help offset the overall cost to our taxpayers.

Did you know licensing your pet is required by law for all dogs and cats over eight weeks old? Licensing your pet also helps to fund the life-saving work that RASKC performs. Each year, RASKC gives thousands of animals a second chance by providing quality care while at the pet adoption center.

For pets, getting lost is a frightening experience. With a current pet license from Regional Animal Services of King County, your cat or dog can easily be returned to you.

In addition, for those that have strayed off for the first time, your pet may receive a free ride home prior to being impounded at the shelter. Licensing your pet is easy, you can go online, go in person to the many locations in King County, or you can send the application via email.
