Support KARE with Your Donation

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 growing and continues to expand our affordable public education opportunities to help keep pets in their forever homes. Our dream of our own training and behavior rehabilitation facility was realized in 2018 thanks to our donors and supporters! Our volunteer-powered team is passionate about providing quality, affordable education as well as rescuing at-risk animals.

There are many ways to support KARE’s mission!

Donate a Kuranda Bed to a Lucky Foster Dog

We are trying to provide our foster dogs with Kuranda ShelterBeds. A ShelterBed is a life-changing gift! Kuranda ShelterBeds are Made in the USA and are specifically designed to resist chewing and digging. These beds provide essential comfort to our fosters — helping them sleep better, reducing stress behaviors and increasing their chance for adoption! Best of all, the beds are easy to clean. That means less time cleaning and in the laundry room for our moms with puppies and more time socializing, raising and training! To donate a bed, visit our wish list!
