Welcome to KARE

Kitsap Animal Rescue & Education (KARE) is an volunteer-powered, non-profit organization, based out of Kitsap County, whose mission is to provide animal welfare education as well as animal rescue/shelter support for the community. We provide classes, workshops and seminars revolving around dog behavior, communication and training, in the effort of reducing the number of homeless and relinquished pets in the area. Our goal is to help pets find and stay in their “forever homes”. We hope to share our mission, while continuing to build our network of community partnerships.



Kitsap County has entered phase 2.  We are doing small classes and one on one sessions.  Our play yard is available to rent.  Reservations require a 24 hour advance sign up, so that we may sanitize the play yard between uses.  We will not be renting out the facility at this time.

We will continue to do social distancing and ask that you wear a mask when participating in a class or session.

If you prefer to stay at home, we are providing a few instructional videos on specific behaviors as well as video training.

Please stay tuned to our social media and website. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We are still here for you!
