License fees not only support the return of hundreds of lost pets to their homes but they also help thousands of homeless pets to new families every year.There are plenty of cats and dogs and other pets with unique names at the County’s animal shelters, plus, some without a name that are waiting for a home. Pet license fees also fund investigation of animal neglect or cruelty, spay/neuter programs to reduce pet over-population, and community education services. RASKC services are made possible with the help of over 450 volunteers.

“Our whole region benefits when pets are licensed,” said RASKC manager Gene Mueller. “Licensed pets are returned home more quickly, and licensing supports the work that we do at Regional Animal Services to improve the lives of people and pets throughout King County.”

If you live in the RASKC service area, there are more than 300 convenient locations, including many city halls and QFC stores, in King County where you can purchase a pet license. Check www.kingcounty.gov/pets for a place near you or call 206-296-7387 (PETS).
