Kudos! RASKC assists homeless residents with pets
As part of outreach to local homeless shelters, RASKC received a request for assistance from a homeless-in-cars shelter at Lake Washington United Methodist Church (LWUMC) in Kirkland. LWUMC had been able to secure complimentary dog grooming at a local business for two residents’ dogs, but the dogs required current rabies vaccinations and documentation to attend. RASKC was able to coordinate a veterinarian visit during a Friday commute.
This effort further demonstrates King County’s commitment to equity and social justice, and helping people experiencing homelessness to be able to keep their animal companions healthy and cared for.
