The Kitsap Humane Society (KHS) announced that it’s partnering with Best Friends Animal Society and Zappos.com to offer fee-waived (FREE!) adoptions for ALL shelter pets starting on Black Friday and going through Monday.
This is the second year that Zappos has sponsored the adoption fees during their “Home for the Pawlidayz” event, but the first time that Kitsap Humane Society has participated.
KHS’ goal for the weekend is to find homes for over 120 homeless pets during the event.
Adopters will only have to cover the cost of a pet license (if applicable), but they are welcome to make a contribution to KHS as well. Adopters will able to purchase supplies (like carriers, collars, leashes, and litter boxes), and Mad Moose Pizza will have its food truck at the event Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
“KHS is proud to be one of only three shelters in Washington chosen to participate in this fun event. We know our community is full of animal lovers that will be excited by the opportunity to save some money on the adoption fee and put those funds towards pet supplies and other holiday spending,” said Natalie Smith, Director of Animal Welfare at Kitsap Humane Society. “For every animal adopted during the event, two lives are saved- that pet’s life, plus the pet that we can go rescue because there is an open cage available.”
Hundreds of pets will be available for adoption during the KHS event, including puppies, kittens, adult cats and dogs and even small animals and chickens! The adoptable pets include animals saved from the local community as well as at-risk pets saved from overcrowded shelters across the country through KHS’ Rescue Me program.
Shelter staff and volunteers will be on hand to help every customer find the right pet for their lifestyle. All adopters will still go through the standard adoption process, including application, counseling and approval process.
The event will be held from Noon-5:30 PM all four days at the Kitsap Humane Society, 9167 Dickey Rd NW, Silverdale, WA 98383.
