Snimm is a beautiful and sleek young female cat. She's quite friendly!  Snimm has grown used to be exploring outside and needs to be an indoor/outdoor cat so she will do best in a home that's far from the highway.

The theme this year was "A Moment in Time: Snapshots of Ketchikan's Past" so we decided to honor Betty King - Ketchikan's original rescue lady.   Read more about her 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.

Animals Rescued* to date in 2014: 109
Animals Rescued* since 2009:  455

Feral/Low cost spay/neuters to date 2014:  26
Feral/Low cost spay/neuters since 2012:   312

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