Help Feed People & Pets this Holiday Season!

November 1 @ 8:00 am - November 30 @ 5:00 pm

Please join Kitsap Humane Society in our second-annual community food drive during the month of November!

This special food drive for people and pets will help stock the shelves of Kitsap Humane Society’s Pet Food Pantry, as well as the shelves of food banks throughout Kitsap County.

Last year, Kitsap Humane Society’s community food drive collected 250 pounds of people food, and enough pet food to both restock our own pet food pantry and share with area food banks.  This holiday season, our goal is to collect 500 pounds of people food to help even more feed families in need.

The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has created financial challenges for numerous people, and many families are now facing food insecurity due to this crisis. By donating non-perishable groceries and pet food to Kitsap Humane Society, you will help ensure that families in our community don’t have to make a choice between feeding themselves and feeding their pets.

Please, help us help them this holiday season.

Details: Donations accepted daily from 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. in designated bins outside Kitsap Humane Society at 9167 Dickey Road NW Silverdale, WA 98383.  You can also have pet food and people food delivered directly to Kitsap Humane Society via our special community food drive Amazon Wish List.  Make your purchase through AmazonSmile, select Kitsap Humane Society as your charity of choice, and a percentage of eligible sales will be donated to help the animals.

Please note: Perishable foods such as frozen turkeys should be donated directly to food banks; non-perishable items should not be expired or about to expire; we cannot accept opened items, but you can drop opened bags of pets food at many local food banks.
