Pet Partners

 

We are excited to coordinate opportunities for Delta Society Pet Partners training in the Kitsap area. The Delta Society is a national non-profit organization that trains humans and their pets to serve in assisted-living, hospitals, schools, and other settings. They believe in the special bond between humans and pets and at Kitsap Humane Society, we realize the potential to reach out and serve the community with this program.

Becoming a registered Pet Partner is a commitment. Pet Partners must pass a screening and evaluation prior to beginning visits.  All details and requirements can be found on-line at www.deltasociety.org and if you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact the Volunteer Department at volunteerdept@kitsap-humane.org.

For more than 20 years KHS has provided animal-assisted visits from volunteers to nearly 20 local residential, healthcare, and educational settings.  We recently transitioned to the Delta Society Pet Partners program out of a growing need for finding pets that are the right fit for visits such as these.  Currently, KHS is seeking volunteers in the area interested in training as a Pet Partner and joining our KHS Pet Partners community.
