KHS Prison Kitties Receive National and International Attention

November 18, 2015

Our Pawsitive Prison Program at the Mission Creek Women’s Correctional Center began the end of October and is off to a great start! The program trains approved offenders at Mission Creek to foster cats and kittens from KHS until they are ready to return to the shelter for adoption.

We are very excited with the initial success of this program and the support it is receiving from our community. Earlier this week, King 5 news featured a story on the program along with the BBC interviewing KHS Adoption Outreach Coordinator, Meagan Richards, and a video and story published by USA Today.
