Getting Ready for Spring with Your Pet

Spring is upon us! With the rising temperatures and nicer weather, many dogs and their families begin venturing outdoors more in search of fun things to do together, and some cats may start demanding outside time. As spring arrives there are some things that you, as a responsible pet owner, can do to ensure everyone has a safe and fun time. 

You are invited! 

We invite our community of supporters to attend our April 22, 2017 Annual Meeting. From 3:00pm - 4:30pm, you can meet the Board of Directors and see some of the behind-the-scenes workings of Kitsap Humane Society's administrative team.

This annual meeting will take place in the Canal Room at the Best Western Silverdale Beach Hotel.
We’re Open on Easter!  

Easter is Sunday, April 16 - Kitsap Humane Society will be OPEN for adoptions, AND we are celebrating with an Easter Adoption Eggstravaganza! 

Easter is the perfect time to bring your whole family in to give a homeless pet a loving home. During the event, every adopter will get to draw an Easter egg out of a basket, and inside each egg will be a prize! Adopters can win free KHS merchandise, free pet supplies, or a discount on their adoption fee, and one lucky adopter will even win a FREE adoption!
