The Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) is canvassing in southeast Kenmore and in some multi-family communities on weekends this summer.

RASKC pet licensing representatives can be 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, according to a release. Instead, they hand out temporary licenses, which allow pet owners time to purchase a permanent license.

RASKC representatives are trained, experienced and follow strict guidelines regarding professional conduct, the release states. 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 the door.

There are many benefits to licensing your pet, the release states.

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 the local area, including investigating animal cruelty, reuniting stray pets with their families and adopting thousands of pets to their forever home every year.

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

Pet owners can also pick up self-mailers and licensing information at any of these locations in Kenmore: All the Best Pet Care, BowWow Fun Towne, Inglemoor Animal Hospital, Kenmore Library, Kenmore Senior Center, Kenmore Veterinary Hospital, Maser’s Grooming & Pet Boutique, Inc, Pawsitive Alliance, Saint Edwards State Park, Smooches for Pooches Pet Sitting and Tommie’s Grooming.
