License Your Kent Pet
For a nominal fee, Kent dog and cat owners receive many benefits from RASKC.
Our four-legged friends hold a very special place in our hearts. That’s why it is important to make sure they are licensed, so they can be returned to you if they get loose or run away. It’s simple, affordable and good for the community
Our furry four-legged friends hold a very special place in our hearts. That’s why it is important to make sure your Kent dog or cat is licensed, so they can be returned to you if they get loose or run away. It’s simple, affordable and good for the community. It is also required by law in the City of Kent.
There are many benefits that come with licensing your pet:
- Reunion with your lost pet: Pets that are found and reported are often reunited with their owners quickly.
- Free ride home: The first time a licensed pet is found, they get a free ride home.
- Extra care: When lost pets are located, they are cared for safely and responsibly by Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC).
- Vacation pet alerts: When you go on vacation, call 206-296-2712 to register where your pet will be while you are on vacation, who will be caring for your pet and where to reach you. If your pet gets loose while you are away, we will call you to let you know.
- Support RASKC’s work: The nominal pet licensing fees help support the care and return of other lost pets to their homes and help adopt thousands of homeless pets every year.
- Shelter in Kent: We have a RASKC shelter right here in Kent that licensing revenue helps support.
