Pet of the week


Franz gets his name because he looks a little like one of the Saturday Night Live characters in the Hans and Franz sketches. He's sort of a Muscle Beach dog. Franzie is a neutered mixed-breed, about five or six years old. There's some Chihuahua, and three people who saw him today on his walk thought maybe some Corgi. Franz is very timid, but he is warming up quickly in his foster home. He is learning that strangers have treats and kind hands. If you're interested in meeting Franz, please fill out an application.

What We've Done 

KHS has been rescuing since 2001 but formal statistics were not retained until 2009.  We estimate that 300+ animals were rescued in the first eight years.   

Since Dr. Marna opened Island to Island Veterinary Clinic in Ketchikan in 2012 we've been able to target feral cat populations in Ketchikan and offer low cost spay/neuters through her generous donations of services and facilities.

Animals Rescued* to date in 2015: 31
Animals Rescued* since 2009:  567

*Rescued means rehabilitated, spayed or neutered if necessary and placed in a permanent loving home.
