Adopt

Due to COVID-19, KHS has switched to an appointment-based system for all adoptions, rather than allowing entry to the shelter for pet viewing. To view our available animals, please click the “Available Pets” icon above.

The Governor and State of Washington have updated their list of “essential businesses and activities” during the COVID crisis, with the following statement, which includes the services provided by KHS:
Activities related to animals are essential whenever necessary to preserve the health and welfare of our pets and service animals.


Kitsap Humane Society has a wide selection of dogs and cats of all sizes, ages, breeds and personalities available for adoption! Small animals, birds and livestock are also occasionally at the shelter and in need of homes.

Each adoption for dogs and cats includes:

  • Spay or neuter surgery
  • Microchip with registration through Home Again
  • Initial vaccinations
  • Intestinal de-worming
  • Initial flea treatment
  • Free post-adoption exam at local participating veterinarians
  • Reference material on pet care and training
  • Post-adoption behavior support, as needed

In addition to the animals that are available at the shelter, adoptable pets can also be found around the region at weekly adoption events.  Adoptable cats and kittens are also available at our off-site adoption locations. We make adopting easy and fun, so come find us in your community!
