What's Happening at KHS
Animal Krackers ... A Record-Breaking Success!
On Saturday, September 23, over 450 avid animal lovers joined us at Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort for our 24 th Annual Animal Krackers Presented by Peninsula Subaru . Greeted by freshly groomed adoptable ambassadors and scrumptious hors d’oeuvres, our guests were dressed to the nines and came ready to support shelter pets in need.

We are blown away by the generosity of this community. Your heart for animals is evident in the support you give our lifesaving programs and mission. Through one night of bidding, giving, and fun, we raised over $370,000 for the animals of KHS. WOW! What a night.

Thank you for your support! Thank you for inviting your friends and family. Thank you for donating items to our silent, live, dessert, and online auctions. Thank you for raising your paddles high in support of the work we do here at KHS. Thank you for helping us help the animals.

  Volunteer Spotlight - Forbes Duncan
Meet this month’s Volunteer Spotlight – Forbes!
Forbes has been volunteering at Kitsap Humane Society for almost a year-and-a-half and has contributed over 216 volunteer hours! Forbes contributes his time in a few different volunteer areas. He is one of our most dedicated Events and Outreach volunteers, and is a Rescue Me volunteer with our transfer program. Forbes has helped with numerous events including our two major events, PetsWALK and Animal Krackers.

When asked what he enjoys most about volunteering at Kitsap Humane Society Forbes said: “I love volunteering at the shelter as it is so rewarding to see so many caring people helping the animals of all kinds in so many ways. It is humbling to me. Going out in public at our information booths during events gives us all a chance to show and explain to the public exactly what is involved in loving these animals and how dedicated so many are for the same cause. We all work together to achieve the goals for giving a better life to all these beautiful furry gifts that are in our care. I am so proud to be part of this group and organization that has such compassion.” Thank you, Forbes, for all you do!
