Adopt

Due to COVID-19, KHS has switched to an appointment-based system for all adoptions. While Kitsap County has moved to Phase 3, effective 3/22/21, entry to the shelter will remain limited and walk-ins are not permitted for general pet viewing. For information on how to make an adoption appointment, click on the “How to Adopt” icon. To view our available animals, please click the “Available Pets” icon.

KHS has maintained an appointment-based adoption system since March 2020 and has continued with these operations even as restrictions were lifted throughout  Washington state. The Governor’s new COVID-19 guidance announced March 2021 does not impact our adoption appointment system, as we have been operating on a limited capacity throughout the pandemic and will continue to do so in order to keep our staff, customers, and volunteers safe. 


Kitsap Humane Society has a wide selection of dogs and cats of all sizes, ages, breeds, and personalities available for adoption! Small animals, birds, and livestock are also occasionally at the shelter and in need of homes.

Each adoption for dogs and cats includes:

  • Spay or neuter surgery
  • Microchip with registration through Home Again
  • Initial vaccinations
  • Intestinal de-worming
  • Initial flea treatment
  • Free post-adoption exam at local participating veterinarians
  • Reference material on pet care and training
  • Post-adoption behavior support, as needed

In addition to the animals that are available at the shelter, adoptable pets can also be found around the region at weekly adoption events.  Adoptable cats and kittens are also available at our off-site adoption locations. We make adopting easy and fun, so come find us in your community!

Additional services and retail items for sale to adopters, including:

  • Pet licenses for all Kitsap County municipalities
  • FIV/FeLV testing for cats
  • Engraved ID tags
  • Collars and leashes
  • Cat carriers
  • Single dose and full boxes of Advantage flea treatment
  • Pet beds, toys, clothing and other miscellaneous items
