The cattery at Kitsap Humane Society (KHS) is overflowing with cats of all ages, shapes and sizes.

For a limited time only, adoption fees are 50 percent off all adult cats over 1 year old.

Also, outdoor homes are needed for barn cats. KHS has seen a recent influx in the number of “barn cats” coming to the shelter and is looking for cat lovers who have a barn or other secure outdoor structure.

These cats are not suitable for life inside a house or are simply unhappy living inside.  Cat temperaments range from feral to friendly.

KHS’ barn cat program is designed to find homes for cats that have traditionally been deemed un-adoptable through its normal adoption procedures.

Barn cats are free to good homes.

Applications are available at khsbarncat@kitsap-humane.org.Kitsap Humane Society is a private, non-profit charitable organization that has been caring for animals in need since 1908.

KHS’ admits almost 5,000 animals per year and has a 94 percent save rate, one of the highest in the U.S. It's vision is that every adoptable companion animal has a home.
