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.


KARE Training and Activity Center is NOW AVAILABLE! Participate in a KARE class, or rent our indoor or outdoor play areas for personalized, one-on-one sessions.
