What's Happening at KHS

Two animal welfare bills need your support! Last week we asked for your help to get a senate committee to support a bill that would help reduce cruelty and neglect in our state - and it worked!

SB 5356 has moved from that committee to the Rules Committee, along with another important animal welfare bill, SB 5094, which would limit breed discrimination. Now legislators need to hear from you that these bills need to be scheduled for a full vote on the Senate floor, and supported in that vote! 
Cabin Fever Tips for Your Pet!

Here are some easy tips to help your cats and dogs ward off the dreaded cabin fever!  
My Furry Valentine Recap
The animals at Kitsap Humane Society are feeling the love—and it’s all because of you!

Over 150 valentines were sent to nearly 70 shelter pets during the first 2 weeks of February as part of our My Furry Valentine campaign. Together we raised $3,775 to continue the lifesaving work we do here at KHS. To read more about My Furry Valentine and see pictures of animals being showered with love, visit our website.
