¶ 1 Tri-Cities Animal Care & Control Shelter (TCAC) is a privately-run corporation that contracts with the Animal Control Authority (ACA) of Richland, Pasco and Kennewick (tri-cities) to provide animal control services for the tri-cities area. In 2005, Leonora Clarke made a request for euthanasia logs from TCAC under former chapter 42.17 RCW, the Public Disclosure Act (2004)(PDA). TCAC refused to give Ms. Clarke the records, claiming it was not a public agency subject to the PDA. Ms. Clarke requested the records from ACA, but ACA claimed it did not have the records she sought. Ms. Clarke then filed a lawsuit against TCAC and ACA. Her motion to show cause was denied because the court concluded TCAC was not a public agency. Ms. Clarke appeals.
