KHS Launches Pet Protection Program
Help for victims of domestic violence,
job loss & crisis

Kitsap Humane Society’s Pet Protection Program offers a temporary safe haven for cats belonging to victims of domestic violence and people experiencing job loss, homelessness or other unexpected life changes. The program provides a foster home for cats until the pet owner finds stable housing for a period up to 90 days, at no cost to the pet owner.

Cats will be cared for in approved KHS foster homes, as well as at the shelter, or in area veterinary offices and boarding facilities when needed. 

"Each year, we have over 100 cats surrendered due to the owner being homeless, getting evicted, having their house foreclosed on, going through a divorce/separation, being unable to afford the daily care of the animal, or due to the health of the owner," said Sarah Moody-Cook, KHS Director of Animal Welfare. "This program empowers pet owners by giving them the opportunity to get back on their feet without having to give up a beloved family member or worry about who will care for their pet during a time of crisis."
I t was a great year for the animals, thanks to your generous support! We're grateful to all the animal lovers in our region for helping KHS build a more humane community!

Adorable Adoptable
Meet Flora
Meet Flora! Flora was brought to our shelter in pretty rough condition and was absolutely terrified. She is an adorable Jack Russell Terrier mix who is about 4 years old.

With the help of our staff here at the shelter Flora has slowly, but surely, come out of her shell and is learning to trust that humans will not harm her. This sweet girl has a calm and gentle personality and is looking for a quiet home where she can settle in and grow in confidence.

Once she is comfortable, Flora loves snuggling up on your lap for cuddles and will give you all the kisses! She just wants a family to show her what a little love and kindness can look like. Flora deserves a home that can provide her all the attention, toys, snacks, and cuddles she has been longing for! Will you open your home and your heart to this special dog in need?
