Available Pets

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 page.

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. 

While we do our best to update the availability of our adoptable pets on these sites, we can’t guarantee that specific animals listed on our website will still be available by the time you visit our shelter. It can take up to four hours for the available pets listed here to update, so please revisit this page frequently.

Sometimes our pets are uploaded more quickly to Petfinder, so please try checking this link for the most up-to-date animals in our care.

Don’t see your perfect match? Check back frequently – new pets become available for adoption every day.

For information on our adoption process, please visit our How to Adopt page.

Please note, if you are interested in meeting an adult dog, you must email your adoption application to adoptions@kitsap-humane.org in order to be placed in line to meet the pet. Once more than 4 approved applications have been submitted, the dog will be removed from our Available Pets page.
Other animal types, such as kittens, cats, and small pets, require an appointment to be scheduled online through our Bookings page. Visit our How to Adopt page to learn more.
Choosing the Right Pet:

Adopting a new pet is a big decision, so it’s important to think about what you’re looking for. KHS Adoption Counselors will help you choose the right pet for your lifestyle. To help us get a better idea of the ideal pet for your family, please come prepared to talk about: 

  • Any size or breed restrictions per your landlord or home owner’s insurance
  • How much time you have for exercise or training
  • How much time your new pet will stay alone
  • What energy level you are able to handle
  • What personality traits you are looking for
  • Whether your new pet will be spending time with children, lots of strangers, or other animals
