Titan is a macho dog for a macho guy. Well, don't tell anyone, but he's not as macho as he looks. He looks like a sturdy, chesty, muscular little Chihuahua mix, but he's the kind of dog who will bury his head in your chest if you pet him, and keep it there while you whisper sweet nothings into his ear. He was very standoffish when he first arrived, but now he's a loving little gentleman, not too fragile, who would make an excellent companion for a single person, a couple, or a family with older children. Titan has been neutered and is ready for his forever home.

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: 149
Animals Rescued* since 2009:  496

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.
