Event Details

Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC)

This session is for everyone, age nine & older, interested in volunteering to help RASKC animals. There are often volunteer opportunities at the following RASKC locations:

In SE King County

  • Covington
  • Kent
  • Tukwila

In North and East King County: Kirkland

Commitment: You are encouraged to attend new volunteer orientation to check out whether or not you’d like to make a commitment to volunteering.

After attending this session, if you would like to make the following commitment and if you are selected to volunteer, you would need to attend additional trainings.

If you attend an additional training for a role at RASKC/ Kirkland or RASKC/ Kent, then the minimum commitment is for 50 hours, which usually equates to a weekly shift, usually two hours, for at least six months (If it's an alternating week shift, then for at least 12 months). Some time off okay for vacations and so forth.

  • If volunteering for RASKC at Covington Petco, Reber Ranch (Kent), or Tukwila Petco, then the initial commitment is six months for a weekly shift; 12 months for an alternating week shift.
  • If you start volunteering in the summer, then the minimum commitment is just six shifts plus training.

 If you're planning to foster, then there are no minimum number of shifts. RASKC would like you, however, to foster with the intention of fostering several animals over an initial 12-month period. (We want to avoid people who foster one or two animals, adopt one, then discontinue fostering).

Youth: If you are 9- 15 years old, you must be accompanied by your parent/ parent-designated adult guardian to this session, all trainings sessions, and all shifts. The parent/ guardian must become a volunteer also complete all required paperwork.

If you are 16- 17 years old, your parent/ guardian does not need to be present if they sign and submit the necessary paperwork available at www.kingcounty.gov/RASKCVolunteer.. Youth do not work with dogs at RASKC/ Kent.

School Community Service: RASKC gives credit for school community service with the 50-hour commitment or via the “Super Summer Volunteer Special” where the student makes a commitment to at least eight regularly scheduled shifts plus training.

Court-Ordered Community Service: Okay for traffic-related offenses and comparable for certain volunteer roles only. Not eligible to work at a partner store, not eligible to work with dogs, and not eligible for Vet Clinic volunteering.
