Kitsap Animal Rescue and Education

EDUCATE. ADVOCATE. REHABILITATE. Educating the community for the sake of their pets. Kitsap Animal Rescue & Education (KARE) has been rescuing abandoned or neglected dogs and providing animal welfare education to the community for more than 15 years. With our dedicated team of foster families, KARE rescues pets from dire situations and provides the support and guidance needed to transition into their forever homes. With our certified training team, KARE strives to provide free or low-cost training opportunities revolving around animal behavior education, in an effort to reduce the number of relinquished pets.
KARE continues to grow, with dedicated volunteers, trainers, and fosters joining our cause each day. Our rescues are cared for by a volunteer-powered foster family system. Our priority is always with the dogs, and we strive to give them the best start to their new life. Your donations empower us to remove abandoned or neglected animals from dire situations, rehabilitate, transport, and place in the most loving and appropriately-matched forever home. In 2017, we have rescued an additional 40+ dogs, including Cate and her eight babies, bringing our rescue count to nearly 500 over the past decade. Before coming to KARE, Cate was chained to a very small tree without shelter of any kind – she had dug a hole big enough for her to lay in, where she had her babies. Cate was emaciated, and her puppies were not doing well. One had, at first, thought to have been deceased, but was just very close and with some help, recovered and named “Miracle”. Once they were well enough to travel, Cate was transported to KARE, and Cate and all 8 babies, including Miracle, have since found their forever homes.
The Kitsap Great Give funding will allow KARE to rescue more pets from high kill areas, expand our community outreach and free workshops, and continue development of our training facility, which will improve our organization’s day-to-day operations, and provide a safe space for those who are struggling with behavioral issues caused by environmental stressors.
