The Regional Animal Service of King County and Metropolitan King County Council Vice Chair Reagan Dunn also issued a reminder for people to license their pets to help keep them safe.

"Licensing your pet not only helps to protect your pet if it ever becomes lost, it also helps fund the life-saving work of Regional Animal Services of King County," said Dunn. "Our pet registry awareness efforts contributed to a 10 percent spike in animal registrations last year. I'm hoping to see similar results this year.”

One of the benefits of registering through the RASKC is that found pets can be reunited quickly with their owner. The licensed pet gets a free ride home the first time it's found, which lets you skip a trip to the animal shelter.

"A pet license helps so many animals." said RASKC manager Gene Mueller. "It helps your pet return home quickly if they are ever lost, and it makes possible all our animal shelter's work to rehabilitate and rehome thousands of needy animals."
