Pet of the week


Thunder is eight months old. He's a purebred Labrador Retriever. He has absolutely no manners. He is romping around his foster home like a water buffalo on amphetamines. He is not housebroken, crate trained, or leash trained.

With all that being said, he is very smart, very friendly, and very willing to please, if only he could slow down long enough to focus. Here's his whole philosophy of life: "Grass! Yay!" "People! Yay!" "Sunshine! Yay!" "Air molecules! Yay!"

Thunder likes kids and other dogs. His rescuer's family bred Brittany Spaniels and Labs for field trials and she says she thinks Thunder has huge potential. Thunder is a diamond in the rough. He will be available for adoption after he's been neutered.

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: 33
Animals Rescued* since 2009:  570

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