Pet Licensing in Bothell, Washington

Pet Animal - Pet Licensing Service in Bothell, WA
Worthington Licensing in Bothell, Washington has partnered with the Regional Animal Services of King County to issue pet licenses. When your pet is wearing a King County pet license, you are assured of:
  • Notification should your pet be found by King County Animal Control or a concerned neighbor who accesses the found pet information line.
  • A free ride home on the first impound. No impound fee will be charged. Officers will attempt to return your pet home immediately, skipping a visit to the animal shelter.
  • Up To 2 Weeks Of Safety. Your licensed pet will be cared for at the King County Animal Shelter, for at least 5 days after phone contact with you and up to 2 weeks after mailed notice, before it is adopted or euthanized.
  • Participation in the Vacation Pet Alert program. When you leave home just let us know who will be responsible for your pet's care or where you can be reached.

Here's How Your Pet's License Works:

Each license provides a unique number which identifies your pet as belonging to you as long as the tag and collar are worn. Your name, address, and phone number, as well as a description of your pet, is kept on file at King County Animal Control. Records are updated annually to keep information current. If someone finds your pet, they can call the phone number on the license and receive this information. If we find your pet, we will contact you. The tag your pet will wear serves as a permanent pet license tag for the life of your pet. The tag is made of durable stainless steel and does not require annual replacement. If your pet loses the tag, or it is destroyed, a new one can be obtained at Worthington Licensing for a small replacement fee. A renewal notice will be mailed to you each year, but when you renew, your pet will retain the same tag.
