pet of the week



Licorice was just 4 weeks old when she was surrendered to the shelter in July.  We got her about a month ago and she has steadily been coming out of her shell. Licorice is not a fan of being held but is very affectionate and will climb right on you.  She is about 6 months old and very playful. She doesn't seem to mind dogs.  Come fall in love with her at Island to Island Vet!

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: 188
Animals Rescued* since 2009:  535

Feral/Low cost spay/neuters to date 2014: 60
Feral/Low cost spay/neuters since 2012:   372

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