Ways to Support KHS in April

April 5, 2022

This April, you can help second chances start at KHS for pets in need by supporting our various April events!

Vote for Dr. Jennifer Stonequist as Petco Love’s National Unsung Hero!

For the last eleven years, many of us have known Dr. Jennifer “Dr. Jen” Stonequist, our Director of Shelter Medicine, as a hero to thousands of pets in need throughout our community.

Today, the country will learn about her, too.

Kitsap Humane Society has gained national attention thanks to Dr. Jen’s lifesaving work.

Her extraordinary story has been recognized by Petco Love and Victoria Stilwell, internationally-renowned dog trainer and star of the hit series It’s Me or the Dog – and Dr. Jen has been named one of their five 2022 Unsung Heroes honorees.

But we need your help! Today through April 18, you can help KHS earn $25,000 by voting for Dr. Jen as the ultimate champion!

Vote Now!

Dr. Jen, whose compassion for animals and people is contagious, has helped transform Kitsap Humane Society into a beloved non-profit known for its high-lifesaving rate.

She’s saved the lives of countless pets in the Kitsap community and in Mulegé, Mexico during yearly “spay-cations.”

Dr. Jen was crucial in altering an antiquated law through her advocacy in Olympia, which now allows shelters to treat pets from low-income families, keeping them together.

Trained in mindfulness, she also provides mentorship and compassion fatigue training to veterinary professionals across the country.

You can vote for Dr. Jen and watch her Unsung Hero (below, too!) story along with the other nominees inspiring tales at petcolove.org/unsunghero beginning today through April 18 at 10 am PT! And please encourage your friends and family to vote for Dr. Jen, too!

Please be sure to only vote once – and confirm your vote via your email. It can take up to 20 minutes to receive the confirmation email from Petco Love. If you’re not seeing the email in your inbox, please check your spam folder.
