A letter from our Executive Director

Animal shelters serve the community as we know, but who is the community?

Today the word means so much more as each of our Facebook Friends is aware. At the same time our world seems smaller and more connected.

Social media like Facebook has literally meant the difference between life and death for those we serve at Kitsap Humane Society. It has brought together partner organizations to serve the greater good, created resources that did not exist, and helped rehome animals in jeopardy.

A Day in the Life of a KHS Foster Family: Petey the Tripod; Day 3

Petey the Tripod, Day 3: Petey is learning that being inside is a good thing. If we open the door to go in the backyard, he hesitates unless Bruno (his buddy the German Shepherd)and we go out with him. It took about a half a day to house train him and we have been able to leave him home for 3-4 hours without any accidents also. What a smart guy!

We were beginning to wonder if Petey had a voice but when I put him downstairs after their early morning outing, he let out a loud "WOOF" after I shut the door. At least we know he can talk and uses his words sparingly!

A Day in the Life of a KHS Foster Family: Petey the Tripod

Ever wondered exactly what it is like when a family takes in a foster dog or cat? This blog will detail our family's experience taking in a Medical Foster Dog from the Kitsap Humane Society. Check in for frequent updates!

Day 1: We brought Petey home from the shelter yesterday. Petey is a young male German Shepherd mix who escaped his family's yard and got hit by a car. Because he was so skittish and was hurt, it took them 2 days to catch him. By that time, his leg injury was so bad that they had to amputate.

Foster Families Needed for Puppies

We need immediate recruitment for community individuals interested in volunteering as a foster for puppies. Puppy season has begun! We know we are not currently accepting applications for volunteers, but we can have interested parties complete the foster application that is posted online and then email it to We will then notify them of the foster training sessions they can attend prior to volunteering. This must be completed before fostering.
