A great place to look for love

Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) has recently partnered with Petco in Kirkland to bring pet adoption services to the region through the new Eastside Adoption Center facility.

“We were approached by Petco to think more broadly about how we can reach the animal-loving public in King County, and an opportunity to bring dogs and cats to our pet-loving public,” said RASKC Director  Gene Mueller.

Located inside the Petco store, the 1,100 square foot location services many cities in the north King County region. Each animal available for adoption is originally from the shelter in Kent, and receives a behavioral assessment, current vaccinations and is spayed or neutered. Those who decide to adopt an animal are also provided with a full medical history.

“Regional Animal Services of King County services has such a large area that a lot of these northern cities don’t necessarily know a whole lot about us, so having a presence here is really great to have,” said Animal Placement Specialist Nickie Ford. “We get a lot of adoptions from people living in these cities.”
