Island to Island is amazing in its support of KHS. We could not run our low-cost spay/neuter clinics without the support of Island to Island staff and vet, Dr. Marna. Thanks again for all you do for KHS!

A volunteer helps to recover Alice after her spay surgery. During the clinic we fixed nine dogs and one cat. We couldn't have done it without our amazing volunteers! See the photos HERE.
pet of the week
Nugget is a very sweet four-month old guinea pig. He was hand raised and is extremely social (and even loves his foster dog!) Nugget's favorite past times are watching YouTube videos of other piggies or snacking on kale, parsley and green beans. He loves to snuggle! See more pics of Nugget HERE.

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.
