Do you love dogs?
Do you feel skilled and excited about the possibility of helping bring out the best in an adorable dog in your home who has shown some naughty behaviors at the shelter?
If so, consider foster a dog from RASKC on a temporary basis. RASKC will provide dog training via Zoom at no cost to you.
So many dogs reveal their true selves in a home environment, where they can relax and feel the love as preparation for adoption in the foster home or to a new adopter.
If the situation does not work out as hoped, it is fine to return the animal to the shelter.
1. Engage in the online training on RASKC's website. Go to www.kingcounty.gov/RASKCVolunteer, then scroll down to the Get Involved section and click on the plus sign (+). Watch the foster modules and complete the quizzes.
2. One adult in your household completes an initial online application- www.tinyurl.com/RASKC-Vol-Apply
3. The adult who completes the online application also completes an online liability waiver- https://tinyurl.com/DocuSign4RASKC
Share your love and have fun as a foster parent to a canine sweetie who needs your kindnesses and guidance.
Thanks for considering this possibility.

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.
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.
