King County Animal Care and Control gladly accepts donations for helping our animals. You can donate online, send cash donations or see our wish list for other items to contribute. Cash donations are deposited into the County's Animal Benefit Bequest Fund in any of the following four funds:
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 .
Donations may be used to pay or off-set 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.
Help the Animals Fund (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 the shelter's 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.
Donate online, or designate which of the four funds your donation is for and send to:
