Regional Animal Services of King County connected 2,500 pets and owners in 2012, officials announced Monday, just before the curtain dropped on the year.

“We are thrilled that we have been able to find new, loving homes for so many pets this year,” agency Operations Manager Glynis Frederiksen said in a statement.

Laura Grieve, a Renton resident, adopted the 2,500th pet just before the Pet Adoption Center closed Monday evening.

The adoption closed a busy year for the animal control agency.

In April, King County Executive Dow Constantine selected Gene Mueller to lead the agency. Issaquah and 24 other cities also renewed contracts for animal care and control services. The contract went into effect Tuesday and runs through December 2015.
