King County Executive
Dow Constantine

Joint agreement in principle proposed for humane and cost-effective 'Regional Animal Services of King County'


King County would be divided into four districts each staffed by at least one animal control officer, stray or abandoned animals would be housed at a non-profit shelter in Lynnwood or at the county shelter in Kent, and cities could enjoy significant economies of scale under a new regional animal services model developed by a Joint Cities-County Work Group.
