As the New Year gets underway, many people have resolved to volunteer more and get involved in their community.

Regional Animal Services of King County has many opportunities in 2015 for people who love animals and want to make a difference.

RASKC is especially seeking residents of Kirkland, Bellevue, Redmond, Sammamish and other Eastside cities who would like to volunteer at the Eastside Pet Adoption Center at Kirkland Petco.
