License for Love

A pet license is precious metal. Licensed pets are more likely than unlicensed pets to be returned to their owner if they go stray. License fees also help fund the lifesaving work of Regional Animal Services of King County, including helping find homes for adoptable pets and investigating cases of animal cruelty or neglect.

Now through June 30, you can license your cat or dog, or renew an expired license, and we'll waive any late fees. Show your pet that you love them - license them today!


Walk-in services have resumed at the Pet Adoption Center in Kent! Appointments are no longer needed to meet and greet your new furry family member. See our Adoption Processes information for details.
