How $25,000 from HomeAgain Helps Would Aid this Shelter

Winning the Grand Prize would enable Kitsap Humane Society to expand its adoption, rescue transfer and foster care programs and make critical facility upgrades such as creating more space for each animal and indoor-outdoor runs for big dogs. New tech tools would enable staff to get adoptable pets promoted online sooner. Animal health products would expand veterinary services. Additionally, foster families could receive a start-up kit to help with orphaned-animal care.

Kitsap Humane Society cares deeply about it's animals. Each year almost 5,000 animals arrive at this open admissions shelter, and each year 95% of these animals find a home.
