Mission Statement

To provide King County with sustainable, cost-effective animal services, which protect people and animals, while providing compassionate animal care. Our organization is built on the cornerstone values of compassion and service. We demonstrate this commitment in the countless hours spent by staff and our RASKC volunteers to save animals' lives at the shelter and in the field. By collaborating with community partners, we are able to expand our programs and resources to provide even greater value to our residents.

Description

RASKC is an agency of the King County government, based in Kent, WA with volunteer satellite locations at Kirkland Petco, Covington Petco, Tukwila Petco, and Reber Ranch (Kent), in addition to hundreds of foster volunteers' homes. Outstanding teamwork between staff and volunteers is the key to our success. RASKC cares for about 5,000 animals each year. We are an open-admission shelter with a save rate that exceeds 92%!

Last year more than 770 volunteers participated in over a dozen teams, including foster volunteers, dog walkers, dog-enrichment volunteers, Dog Kennel Specialists, Pet Publicists, community-outreach volunteers, Shelter Helpers, Vet Clinic volunteers, Cat Meet & Greet volunteers, the Early Morning Cat Crew, the Cat Area Stray Team (CAST), the barn-cat program,and the cat-care teams at four partner stores. In any given two week-period, RASKC volunteers help out on more than 400 scheduled timeslots in any given week.
