2015 Top Ten Most Popular Names for Dogs and Cats in King County

If you are in need of assistance with county government, please visit my website or call my office at (206) 477-1009

Happy New Year! To bring in the New Year, I had the opportunity to partner with the Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) to bring you the top ten dogs and cats names in King County for 2015! What names do you think were the most popular pet names in your community? Did your pet make the cut? Check to see!

The Top Ten Pet Names in King County are: https://www.kingcounty.gov/council/news/2016/January/01-04-RD-petnames.aspx.

RASKC asked me to remind pet owners to make sure your pet is licensed. License fees not only support the return of hundreds of lost pets to their homes, they also help homeless pets find new families. Pet license fees help fund investigation of animal neglect or cruelty, defray the costs of spay/neuter programs to reduce pet over-population, and community education services.

RASKC services are made possible with the help of over 450 volunteers and serves over one million residents living in 25 cities including Newcastle, Kent, Enumclaw, Black Diamond, Maple Valley, Covington, and Bellevue as well as King County's unincorporated communities. If you live in the RASKC service area, there are more than 300 convenient locations, including many city halls and QFC stores, where you can purchase a pet license.

Kent, Enumclaw, Maple Valley, Covington and Black Diamond, Newcastle, and Bellevue.

Southeast King County MIDD Focus Group:

King County wants to hear your ideas or concerns about mental health and substance abuse needs and services in our community, for people of all ages. I am partnering with the King County Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) to host a focus group designed in informing the County's decisions around its investments related to the Mental Illness and Drug Dependency (MIDD) renewal.

There will be a facilitated group discussion designed specifically to hear the perspectives from Southeast King County on Thursday, January 14, 2016 6:30 PM-8:30 PM at the Tahoma School District Central Services Center, 25720 Maple Valley-Black Diamond Road SE. Everyone is welcome. If you have experience with mental health or substance abuse treatment, want services but can't access them, are a service provider, educator, volunteer, community leader, or any other interested community member we want to hear your insight. No prior knowledge or expertise is required.
