Adoption Prices

COVID-19 Update: 

Due to COVID-19, Kitsap Humane Society has switched to an appointment-based adoption system, effective 3/27/20. 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. Please review the information below to find out more about how to adopt.

The Governor and the State of Washington have updated their list of “essential businesses and activities” during the COVID crisis, with the following statement, which includes the services provided by KHS: Activities related to animals are essential whenever necessary to preserve the health and welfare of our pets and service animals.

If you are experiencing symptoms that could be related to COVID-19, we ask that you cancel your appointment and don’t come to the shelter while you are ill. For a list of symptoms, please visit the CDC’s website.


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 animals kennel card, or check in with our Customer Service team at the front desk to learn more.


Adoption fees may be reduced during certain events and promotions- view our current News and Events pages for information on upcoming adoption discounts or check out our Calendar of Events.
