Bella, Luna Head the List of King County’s Top Pet Names

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff
Metropolitan King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn and Regional Animal Services of King County (RASCK) have released their annual list of the top names for dogs and cats in King County for 2018.
 
“Pet licensing helps return lost pets to owners more quickly, and just as importantly, it provides shelter pets with the resources needed to give them a deserving second chance,” said Tim Anderson, RASKC Acting Manager. “Last year we celebrated a remarkable pet-save rate of 92 percent and had a banner year for pet adoptions! When pets are registered, it’s easier to protect them.”
 
This year, King County residents have registered 66,721 dogs and 27,432 cats! Despite the rivalry between cat-lovers and dog-lovers, King County pet owners found some common ground this year with six of the top ten names appearing on both lists. Here are the names that clawed their way to the top.
 
2018’s top pet names
   Dogs/Cats
1 Bella/Luna
2 Luna/Max
3 Charlie/Bella
4 Daisy/Charlie
5 Max/Lilly
6 Coco/Buddy
7 Lucy/Lucy
8 Cooper/Oliver
9 Buddy/Pepper
10 Sadie/Gracie
 
This list is derived from pet license applications submitted to RASKC, which serves nearly one million residents living in 24 cities and unincorporated communities throughout King County.
 
If a licensed pet is lost, the finder can call the phone number on the pet’s tag – a service that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – to quickly reunite them with their owner. Pets receive a free ride home the first time they’re found, allowing owners to skip a trip to the shelter.
 
You can purchase pet licenses online, or at more than 70 convenient locations around the county, including many city halls and QFC stores. Learn more at Regional Animal Service of King County’s website, kingcounty.gov/pets.
