I’ve often found myself longingly staring at people walking their dogs on campus, desperately wanting to cuddle up to the next animal I see.

Combining two of life’s greatest joys, cats and coffee, Meowtropolitan provides a unique experience that lets you spend some quality time with local feline friends.

Too corny? Fine, we’ll stop right meow 🙂

June is often the month when Triple Crowns are awarded. So it might be an apt time to laud RASKC volunteers who: a) actively participate in three or more RASKC roles, or b) who average three or more weekly scheduled shifts, and/or c) have contributed 300 or more foster hours so far this year. Triple […]

Meet Liz! She is one RASKC’s longest serving volunteers who faithfully contributes a weekly shift, which she has been doing with cats at Reber Ranch since 2008. Liz is extremely proficient, extraordinarily reliable, and exudes great cheer. For many years Liz helped in taking care of all the laundry associated with RASKC’s cat-care at Reber Ranch. […]

Over the last few years Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) has gone through several transformations, putting more emphasis than ever before on connecting with the community and improving quality of life for the animals in our care. By the end of 2016, RASKC had officially reached a 90% Live Release Rate (LRR), meaning nine out […]

Meet Marie and Dawn! Marie and her adult daughter Dawn are among the most dedicated and longest serving volunteers. They started volunteering together as kitty cuddlers in 2006. They have worked in many RASKC roles since that time. Marie now works regular cat-care shifts at Reber Ranch Cat-Care, plus she and Dawn staff RASKC’s booth at community events. Every week Dawn selects, photographs, and writes descriptions for RASKC’s Pet of the Week that she sends to several newspapers. She also updates RASKC photographs on Petfinder and has served as an instructor. Dawn and Marie often provide transportation to RASKC cats from Kent to the Meowtropolitan Café in Seattle. Thank you, Marie and Dawn!
