Try Animal Protection!*


*Animal Protection is a Ketchikan-Gateway Borough facility and is in no way affiliated with the Ketchikan Humane Society (KHS.)  KHS  is an independent non-profit organization.  The two organizations do share the same goals and work cooperatively to enhance the lives of animals in Ketchikan Alaska.


 Kittens may be seen Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays in the lobby at Island to Island Veterinary Clinic. We'd like to thank Dr. Marna and her staff for being willing to give our rescues a place to show off and be seen. If you want to pet and hold, please ask a receptionist to call someone to open the condo doors for you.


Be a foster family

Fostering allows animals to be raised or rehabilitated in a normal home environment giving them a better chance at a permanent placement.  It is a short term commitment that provides a lifetime of benefit to an animal in need.

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.

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 2016: 11
Animals Rescued* since 2009:  655

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