Adoption Prices

Kitsap Humane Society uses a walk-up and queue-based first-come, first-served adoption system. We are open for adoptions Wednesday-Monday from noon to 4 pm.

Adoption Prices

Adoption prices may vary based on an animal’s age, size, breed, medical condition or length of time at the shelter. When you adopt from Kitsap Humane Society your adoption fee helps provide medical care, food, and shelter to the animals in our care.

Superhero Adoptions

Superhero Adoption fees are higher than standard adoption fees and may be assigned to animals who are purebred or who are highly sought-after breeds. These special Superhero Adoption fees help Kitsap Humane Society provide care for other pets in need, such as those who come to us in need of medical treatment. An animal with a Superhero Adoption fee will have the fee designated in their adoption summary on the website.

Hidden Gems

Have you found our Hidden Gems? Hidden Gems are animals who have been overlooked by other adopters and have a discounted adoption fee to help them find their forever homes. When animals have been available for adoption for over 30 days or if they have special housing requirements they will become one of our Hidden Gems. Every Hidden Gem has a half-price adoption fee. Be sure to walk through our kennels and look for the gem icon on the animal’s kennel card, or check in with our Customer Service team at the front desk to learn more.
