On Saturday, Oct. 1, Regional Animal Services of King County will participate in the fifth annual Statewide Animal Shelter Open House hosted by Pawsitive Alliance and sponsored by Good Neighbor Vet and PetConnections Magazine.

During this special event, RASKC will take 50% off regular pet adoption fees. Adopting from RASKC is always a great value, and includes a King County pet license, microchipping, spay/neuter surgery, initial vaccinations, and a 30-day trial of pet health insurance through Trupanion.

RASKC operates two pet adoption centers: in south King County at 21615 64th Ave. S. in Kent, and on the Eastside at 12040 NE 85th St. inside Kirkland Petco. Hours for the Open House on Saturday are noon to 5pm in Kent, and 1 to 5:30pm in Kirkland.

For a look at all the adoptable pets available at RASKC, visit www.kingcounty.gov/AdoptAPet. For more information about the open house, log on to www.pawsitivealliance.org.
