Calling all dog lovers!

One of the most valuable ways to volunteer with Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) is to open your heart and home on a temporary basis to a RASKC animal that is waiting to be adopted. These animals need to be in a home environment, rather than the shelter, for a variety of reasons. Your home might be the perfect place for these animals to receive the one-on-one comfort and attention they need. Fostering is a great way to involve the whole family or household in volunteering. RASKC provides free food, litter, and veterinary care while the animals are being fostered. If you are interested in fostering, please contact us at or simply sign up for New Volunteer Orientation. If you're ready to foster, simply complete the online volunteer application and check the "foster" option.
