Partnering with the Kitsap to Find Forever Homes
Written by India Le Marinel, Animal Welfare Program Coordinator
Exciting news! We are very happy to have joined forces with Kitsap Humane Society in Washington State in order to find our rescued dogs and cats the loving homes they deserve. The Kitsap ‘Rescue Me Program’ partners with other shelters and rescues, bringing animals into their foster and adoption programs giving them the opportunity to find great homes. We have already sent 6 dogs who quickly found homes, and 4 more are set to go in the next week with others scheduled to go after that. Special thanks to Dr Amannda Richline who so generously donated to cover the costs of transportation for the first groups of dogs to go to Kitsap. Her support has been crucial in getting this project of the ground and enabling us to give these dogs the best chance of a new life.
Local adoptions in Guatemala are minimal, so the Kitsap partnership is a brilliant opportunity for dogs to find homes when we need to look further afield. Furthermore, the Kitsap program provides potential owners with the opportunity to meet and interact with the dogs, forming bonds that ultimately lead to more adoptions. Our partnership has been incredibly successful so far! We are continuing to fundraise for transportation to Washington State for our dogs and cats.
Let’s find these dogs and cats their forever homes! Donate today to help fund this lifesaving program!
