Weasley’s story starts off promising. He came into the local shelter as a stray and was  adopted by a loving family. This family had him for about 8 years but then had to relocate due to the Navy. Unfortunately, their new place only allowed one pet and they had to make the hard decision to only take their dog. 

Without many other options, Weasley stayed in the empty home while KARE looked for a home. As with all our adoptable pets, Weasley needed to see a veterinarian for up to date vaccinations and an exam. During the exam, the veterinarian determined that Weasley needed multiple tooth extractions. As most of you know, dental work is expensive! So KARE decided to get some other estimates, while still looking for a forever home for Weasley. 

Thankfully, all the stars aligned, and we found the perfect home for Weasley! They were also a military family and were excited that they were finally settled enough to have a pet! We wanted Weasley to feel comfortable in his new home, prior to dental procedure, so after a couple months we were able to get him into NW Spay and Neuter Clinic with their newly opened dental clinic! 

Weasley is all healed up now and is sooo loved! He even has his own social media page! KARE is proud that we can help our local military community and thank you all for your service. 

Giving Activity


Kitsap Animal Rescue & Education (KARE) is a volunteer-powered, non-profit organization, based out of Kitsap County, whose mission is to provide animal welfare education as well as animal rescue/shelter support for the community. We provide classes, workshops, and seminars revolving around dog behavior, communication, and training, in the effort of reducing the number of homeless and relinquished pets in the area. Our goal is to help pets find and stay in their “forever homes”. We hope to share our mission while continuing to build our network of community partnerships.

Our needs are funds for our Medical Grant and Educational Grant to assist our low-income neighbors with veterinary care and training for their pets. Donations also help keep training costs low so people can keep their pets in their loving homes. We transfer in dogs from high-kill areas into our foster homes until they are adopted into their forever home. Our fosters' expenses are 100% covered by KARE which includes vetting, spaying, and neutering.

Help us raise $20,000 this year!!
