Kitsap Humane Society
At the heart of our work is always the pets we serve – both those who come through our shelter doors and into our care as well as owned animals in our community. We commit to humanely supporting animals through our variety of shelter programs and comprehensive veterinary services – and rescuing, rehabilitating, and finding loving homes for as many animals as we can.
Lifting up our community programs and services, including equipping our Animal Control Officers with resources they need to meet our community members where they are at, as well as forming new and strengthening existing relationships with fellow animal welfare organizations, social services organizations, government partners, and representatives, tribal groups, and more is crucial to ensure long-term sustainability and efficacy in our work to continue transforming animal welfare in our community.
We strive to reduce unnecessary surrenders to the shelter, break down unnecessary barriers and provide life-changing solutions to people and pets in need. Through the expansion of our Pet Food Pantry and low-cost veterinary services, in addition to restoring programs and services – such as our microchip and vaccination clinics – previously paused during the pandemic, we can continue our work to improve the health and wellness of vulnerable pets in Kitsap and Mason counties.
More than ever, it’s time to provide our shelter and community pets with a veterinary facility that matches the excellence of our work. Thanks to recent legislation, Phase 2 of our Pet Lifesaving Campaign will usher in a new era at Kitsap Humane Society with the breaking ground of our Veterinary Lifesaving Center in 2022, which will include the development of a community clinic and ensure KHS is able to provide a full spectrum of innovative animal welfare programs and facilities.
