Regional Animal Services of King County offers discount kitten adoption fee

With kitten season in full swing, Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) during the month of August is offering half price off a second kitten with the adoption of one kitten at the normal fee of $100. Regular pet licensing fees apply.

"By adopting two kittens, not only are you getting twice the love, but also a pair of playmates for life," RASKC manager Dr. Gene Mueller said in a county media release.

In addition, during the ASPCA/Rachael Ray $100K Challenge, which runs until Aug. 31, RASKC is waiving the adoption fee for adult cats over six months old. A "discount dogs" special, where adult dogs over six months old can be adopted for just $50, ends soon.

"We've saved more than 500 animals' lives during the first two months of the $100K Challenge," Mueller said.

All cats and dogs adopted from RASKC come spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and have received a veterinary health exam.

For a look at available pets, log on to www.kingcounty.gov/pets or visit the King County Pet Adoption Center at 21615 64th Ave. S. in Kent. Hours for the center are 3-6 p.m. Monday; noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday; and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
