Kitsap Animal Rescue & Education (KARE} provides animal welfare education and shelter rescue support to the West Puget Sound area.

KARE believes we can reduce the number of homeless pets simply by improving how we communicate with our pets, and that many adoptable dogs and cats that do not thrive in the shelter environment just need a good home, a little training and TLC to make them great pets.

KARE is rapidly growing and would like to expand their public education workshops to help keep pets in their forever homes. KARE’s long-term goal Is to have their own facility for training and behavior rehabilitation, allowing KARE to continue rescuing at-risk animals and provide training and education for pet owners.
