Sheltering animals since 1908, Kitsap Humane Society (KHS) envisions a time when all adoptable pets have loving homes. They are an open admissions shelter, and the only brick-and-mortar shelter serving Kitsap County and neighboring Mason County. KHS is committed to maintaining a low euthanasia rate and providing individualized, comprehensive care for each of the over 7,000 animals they take in each year. Their mission is to provide positive life-changing solutions to people and animals in need by: Accepting, sheltering and rehabilitating companion animals in need; Providing humane rescue, protection, prevention, adoption and education services; Implementing progressive life-saving and life-affirming programs; and Collaborating and partnering with their region and supporters to build a model humane community.
Grant funding from Grey Muzzle will help Kitsap Humane Society (KHS) provide diagnostics and medical care, as well as dental cleanings and more extensive dental care such as extractions, for at least 30 more senior dogs over the next year. KHS regularly takes in senior dogs with a variety of medical issues that have been undiagnosed and/or untreated. Being able to provide needed diagnostics and medical treatment for the senior dogs in their shelter will not only provide a higher level of care, but also help them get adopted quicker.
