This list comes from pet license applications submitted to RASKC, which serves nearly one million residents living in 24 towns and unincorporated communities in King County.

If an authorized pet is lost, the finder can call the phone number on the pet’s tag – a 24/7 service – to quickly find it and its owner. Pets receive a free ride home the first time they’re found, allowing owners to skip a trip to the shelter. Pet licenses also help fund RASKC and the important work it does.

In addition to dealing with lost and injured animals, the pet license fee contributes to other vital RASKC tasks, including animal neglect and cruelty investigations, spaying / neutering programs, services adoption of pets and other work aimed at helping local animals with humanity and compassion.

You can purchase pet licenses online or at over 70 convenient locations across the county, including many town halls and QFC stores. Learn more on the King County Regional Animal Service website,
