At Regional Animal Services of King County, we serve with the goal to maximize lifesaving efforts for stray and abused animals by providing shelter, spay and neuter services, extraordinary vet care, spreading awareness around responsible pet ownership, and so much more. We are thankful for the many animal lovers across our region who give generously to help us help even more pets.

Give online here

You can give financial gifts online using a credit or debit card. Your donation can be designated for any one of four funds:

  • Pet Benefit Bequest Fund: An overall donation account that may be used for any program, service or purchase that benefits the animals including, but not limited to, facility improvements, services for hard-to-place animals, or any of the services outlined in the Spay/Neuter, Help the Animals, or Animal Retention funds.
  • Angel Fund: Donations may be used to provide shelter and/or veterinary care for abused animals or pay for medical care associated with rehabilitating sick and injured animals through our Foster Care Program.
  • Animal Retention Fund: Donations may be used for such activities as developing public education videos, advertisements, classes, or other programs that promote responsible pet ownership or provide tools for correcting animal behavior.
  • Spay and Neuter Fund: Donations may be used to pay or offset the cost of spaying and neutering of pets, promote public awareness about the benefits and importance of spaying and neutering, or to purchase new spay and neuter equipment that may not otherwise be obtained.

Since these funds were created, RASKC has been able to save thousands of homeless animals in part due to your contributions - we thank you for your support!

To ensure your donation goes to the fund of your choice, make sure to clearly state your fund preference. Any undesignated donations are earmarked for the Pet Benefit Bequest Fund. Charitable contributions to governmental entities are tax-deductible under section 170(c)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code if made for a public purpose. Download the Governmental Information Letter.

In-Kind Gifts

While great animals await their permanent homes, there are items they could use to support their stay with us at the Pet Adoption Center. Toys or pet-related items can be found below or in this downloadable wish list. We also have an Amazon Wish List where you can purchase items for our animals and have them shipped directly to us. All of these donations go a long way to ensure that adoptable pets have a more comfortable stay with us.
