KHS Construction Update – 7/21/23

August 8, 2023

It’s a sign of a new era for Kitsap Humane Society. It’s a sign of a new safety net for the community we serve. It’s a sign of big things to come. But mostly, it’s a big beautiful sign on the front of our new Russ and Linda Young Veterinary Lifesaving Center that signals that we’re very, very close to our grand opening! Yep, the lettering on the front of the building went up earlier this week and we couldn’t be more excited. But that’s not all. Usually, a “sinking feeling” is a negative, but this week, our sinking feeling is because sinks have been installed throughout the facility, as have fire alarms, a fair amount of equipment, and even light fixtures. Which means everything is lining up perfectly for our exclusive first look at the facility for special guests on September 18 and our official ribbon cutting on October 2.

While you’re waiting for those events, however, there’s plenty to keep you busy in the meantime. Today marks one week until we tee off at the Putting Fore! Pets Golf Tournament at White Horse Golf Course on July 28. There’s still room for a few more golfers, so sign up today. If your irons are hot, you might just get a hole-in-one and ride home on a brand-new Harley-Davidson! And if sipping wine is more your game, get your tickets now for our Wine & Whiskers wine tour. It’s an August through September self-guided tour of 13 of Kitsap’s best wineries and your passport gets you a free tasting at each of them. Cheers!
