Five kittens from Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) were welcomed with open arms in the Chinook building on Tuesday, December 5. The kittens were part of a “Kitty Café”, a KC Employee Giving Program event sponsored by the Office of Performance, Strategy and Budget and Seattle Meowtropolitan Café. The event highlights a partnership with cat cafes located in Seattle promoting the adoption of RASKC cats.
“There was a strong interest and tentative reservation made for 4 of the 5 kittens that were brought in,” Animal Services Administrator Lluvia Ellison-Morales said. “Overall, an overwhelming majority loved the well-organized event.”
Employees stopped by to pet the kittens, which were all eligible for adoption. Attendees were also able to donate to RASKC to further animal services throughout King County. The event raised nearly $700 to benefit RASKC.
