One of the best ways to help control pet overpopulation is getting your pets spayed or neutered. However, distance and cost prevent many families from doing just that. On Fridays in South King County, Pasado’s Safe Haven is helping to make that a little bit easier, logistically and financially.

For a limited time only, cats are FREE for income-qualified south King County residents who live in RASKC’s contracted cities: Black Diamond, Covington, Enumclaw, Kent, Maple Valley, SeaTac, and Tukwila. Unincorporated King County qualified residents are also eligible. This will be paid for by South County Cats.

What You Need To Bring
Your pet. Dogs must be at least 4 months old and arrive wearing a well-fitting collar and be on a leash. Due to space limitations, no dogs over 70lbs will be accepted.
Cats must be at least 2lbs and arrive in their own secure carrier or box, one cat per carrier please. Carriers must be in good working condition and able to securely contain the animal. If a cat escapes a carrier or box, RASKC and Pasado’s cannot be held responsible.
If you have them, you may bring your pets’ medical records. Blood work results are recommended for pets over 5yrs and required for pets 8yrs and older. Results should be no more than 2 weeks old.
You should also being two bath towels per pet. These will be returned at pick-up.
Intake is at 7:00am. Top priority will be given to pregnant and in-heat animals. Also, due to space limitations, there is no guarantee your pet will be accepted that day. You should leave your animals in the car until paperwork is filled out and a coordinator tells you to retrieve your pet. Check-out time is announced when pets are loaded during the in-take process. Someone else may pick up your pet(s) for you, but you cannot ask for an earlier/later pickup time.
Cash is required for all services at check-in. Additional services are provided for a low fee. Purchasing pain control and e-collars for your animals’ well-being is strongly recommended.
