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. The store at 12040 N.E. 85th St. opened in June, and has quickly grown into a favorite stop for prospective pet owners. Volunteers are needed at the Eastside center every day for two-hour shifts between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.

“Volunteering for Regional Animal Services is a wonderful way to help people and pets in our region,” Sarah Luthens, volunteer program manager for RASKC, said in a news release. “Along with individual volunteers, we often have parents and children who volunteer together as a fun family activity.”

In addition to opportunities at the Eastside Pet Adoption Center, there are also volunteer positions available at the main King County Pet Adoption Center in Kent, and opportunities to volunteer at RASKC adoption partner stores and offsite pet adoption events throughout King County.

All RASKC volunteers are thoroughly trained by staff and more-experienced volunteers. A wide variety of jobs are available, from “kitty cuddler” to dog walker to shelter helper. Volunteers are expected to commit at least two hours a month for a minimum of six months.
