Animal Services Conducting Summer Outreach in Kenmore

Did you know that all dogs and cats eight weeks or older must be licensed with King County? Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) has a door-to-door pet licensing outreach program that educates residents about the benefits and requirements of pet licensing.

RASKC will be canvassing in southeast Kenmore and in some multi-family communities on weekends this summer, starting June 8th. 

RASKC pet licensing representatives can be easily recognized by a King County ID badge and a RASKC shirt or jacket. If a representative finds an unlicensed pet, they will not issue a citation. Instead, they hand out temporary licenses, which allow pet owners time to purchase a permanent license.

Their representatives are trained, experienced, and follow strict guidelines regarding professional conduct. Staff will not peer in windows or over fences looking for pets. If a resident is not home at the time the representative visits, they may leave information at your door.

Why should I license my pet?

There are many benefits to licensing your pet! First and foremost, licensed pets are far more likely to be returned to their owner. License fees also directly support RASKC's mission to help animals in our area, including investigating animal cruelty, reuniting stray pets with their families, and adopting thousands of pets to their forever home every year. 

How do I license my pet? 

King County offers several options for licensing pets. Pet owners can purchase a pet license online, mail their license payment to RASKC, or get a license in person at any of their participating pet license partners, including Kenmore City Hall during business hours, weekdays, from 9am to 5pm.

Thank you local partners!
