Kitsap Humane Society to Help the Homeless

January 28, 2015

Silverdale, WA –Kitsap Humane Society will donate rabies vaccines and pet food to help the homeless and their animals at the Bremerton Housing Authority’s Project Connect on January 28.

Project Connect offers homeless participants a wide range of benefits, including legal and immigration assistance, dental and medical care, food and clothing, and other services. Kitsap Humane Society veterinarians will vaccinate up to 50 pets at Project Connect, and shelter staff will transport and distribute pet food donated by the Kitsap community.

According to the national nonprofit Pets of the Homeless, as many as one quarter of homeless citizens own pets. Often, these animals are the only connection individuals have left with security, stability and family. Pets often live with their homeless owners in vehicles, on street corners and in shelters.

Kitsap Humane Society is a private, non-profit, charitable organization that has been caring for animals in need since 1908.  KHS admits more than 5,000 animals per year and has one of the highest lives saved rates in the US.  KHS’ vision is that every adoptable companion animal has a home.  For more information, visit  Rescue.
