Pet of the Month: Kipper

pet of the monthSay hello to Kipper!

This smiley-faced boy is a 2-year-old hound/whippet mix with a sweet and sensitive personality. He is an active boy once he gets comfortable, and he would love to go for walks, runs, and hikes with you.

Kipper loves to play with all types of toys and really seems to enjoy food puzzles that stimulate his brain. Yummy treats are the fastest way to this boy’s heart, as he seems to be very treat motivated.

It is believed that Kipper may not have spent much time inside of a home prior to coming into our shelter. Because of this, he finds going through doorways, new rooms, and meeting new people to be pretty scary at first. Once he trusts you, he will feel much more confident trying out all of these new experiences.

He would do best living in a home (no apartments please; they’re so noisy.) with a fully enclosed, fenced-in yard for potty breaks and play time. Kipper will need adult-only adopters, because loud noises, sudden movements, and arms reaching toward him makes him uncomfortable. Once he learns that the world is not such a scary place to be, he will be a loyal and loving companion to you.

Kipper is currently spending time in a foster home where he can feel safe and learn all kinds of new house skills. Because he is in a foster home, all of his adoption meets are by appointment only. If you are interested in scheduling a time to meet with Kipper please email to request an adoption application. To learn more about him, visit his adoption page.


Kitsap Humane Society is a private, nonprofit animal shelter that rescues and rehomes more than 6,000 pets every year. The Silverdale-based organization has a “lives saved” rate of over 95 percent, and never euthanizes an animal due to lack of space. In addition to caring for and adopting animals, Kitsap Human Society also provides spay/neuter services to low income residents of Kitsap County and Animal Rescue and Enforcement services to surrounding municipalities.
