With just hours left in 2012, Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) capped off a very successful year with the adoption of its 2,500th pet.
Laura Grieve of Renton took home Gaston, a six-year-old snowshoe mix cat, just minutes before the Pet Adoption Center closed on Monday evening.
“We are thrilled that we have been able to find new, loving homes for so many pets this year,” said RASKC operations manager Glynis Frederiksen. “2,500 adoptions is a significant milestone, and we hope to do even more pet adoptions in 2013.”
RASKC had a very successful year 2012. During April, County Executive Dow Constantine selected Dr. Gene Mueller to lead the agency. Before coming to King County, Mueller led the Chicago Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Center, that city’s largest critical-care facility for animals.
RASKC also saw the renewal of contracts with 25 cities in King County for animal care and control services. The new contracts will run for three years.
