Sheltering animals since 1908, Kitsap Humane Society (KHS), in Silverdale, Washington envisions a time when all adoptable pets have loving homes. As an open-admission shelter, they are the principal animal shelter and safety net organization for lost and homeless animals in Kitsap County and neighboring Mason County. KHS advances animal welfare through compassionate, individualized, lifesaving veterinary care and sheltering to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome thousands of homeless animals every year. Since 2015, KHS has achieved a 96% or better lifesaving rate.  Their comprehensive veterinary medicine (including reduced-fee spay/neuter and other services to low-income families), behavior rehabilitation, and foster care programs follow best practices in the field and enable KHS to rescue and save the lives of over 6,000 animals each year. 

Funded in 2018 and 2021
How we help: 

Grant funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization will help Kitsap Humane Society (KHS) launch Supporting Our Seniors, an initiative developed to integrate and increase services for senior dogs in anticipation of a new community clinic opening at KHS in 2023. Supporting Our Seniors includes medical and dental services; an expanded foster care program; and support for owned senior dogs, especially those owned by seniors and low-income pet owners. This initiative aims to provide a higher level of care for senior dogs like 15-year-old Ginger and help them find their forever homes more quickly.
