Pets of the week

8-month-old male cat Henry (also a KHS rescue) has adopted a litter of abandoned kittens that came to Ketchikan Humane Society a few weeks ago.  Henry’s strong mothering instinct is a surprise, and it’s also a gift, because he could make all the difference to whether the kittens survive.

These kittens were left on the side of highway on Prince of Wales Island when they were barely a week old.  They have required around the clock care and feeding and still have the odds stacked against them but with the help of Henry (and the foster family) they are continuing to progress.

Kendrick is a young male lab mix who loves everyone!  He is very well mannered and his favorite trick is 'shake.'  He learns quickly, gets along well with dogs and seems to tolerate cats.  He still needs to be neutered but apply now!

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 2015: 39
Animals Rescued* since 2009:  576

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