we DO NOT have a facility in which people can visit our rescue pets!!
Our mailing address is not where you can go to meet pets in rescue.
All of our pets are fostered in private homes, and we need to respect their privacy.
We are an all volunteer organization with our own families, pets and lives.
Contact us through email, messenger, or the phone.
We are here to make the best possible matches for each pet we bring in.
Thank you for your support.
All of our animals are fostered in private homes. If you'd like to meet a dog please fill out an application and we will schedule an appointment.
Ketchikan Humane Society kittens are vaccinated, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and well-socialized. The adoption fee is $50. Applications can be downloaded from our website, or paper applications can be found under the kitty condo in the lobby of Island to Island Veterinary Clinic, across from the main post office.
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY KHS will no longer be providing pet tags.
Island to Island Veterinary Clinic will now be making pet tags for donations to their Angel Fund. Please contact Island to Island for more information or stop by their new location on Carlanna!
KHS $40 spay/neuter program
We strongly believe that spaying and neutering pets is the best way to keep them healthy and happy and the best way to prevent unwanted animals in our community. If you or someone you know can't afford to alter a cat or a dog, please consider our program for assistance.

We now accept donations via credit card online! Donate now to help abandoned and abused animals in Southern Southeast Alaska. Helping animals in need is a nice way to remember or honor a pet or friend.
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 a permanent low cost spay/neuter program. In 2016 Stonetree Veterinary Clinic started participating in the low cost spay/neuter program allowing us to cover more animals and to get them in more quickly.
Animals Rescued since 2009: 1000+
