“Animals are sometimes the most important companion in someone’s life,” opened Eric Stevens, Executive Director of the Kitsap Humane Society (KHS). Formed in 1908, the organization has transformed from primarily a euthanasia facility to a community partner that strives to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome more than 7,000 animals annually.
 
The services offered are comprehensive, from spay & neuter procedures and pet licensing, to the highly acclaimed “Cats in Prison” program.
 
KHS is in the middle of a 6.5 million dollar capital campaign that will result in a much bigger footprint and a state-of-the-art facility complete with a sophisticated HVAC system, a lower stress dog area with large kennels, new cat condos and more.
 
Animal-loving Rotarians can support KHS by making a donation, contributing an item from the Wish List https://www.kitsap-humane.org/support-us/in-kind-donations/, fostering animals or teaming up for a volunteer project. Eric can be reached at executivedirector@kitsap-humane.org.
