Is Kitsap Animal Rescue and Enforcement a City or County entity?


No, we are actually employed by the Kitsap Humane Society.


Does my dog and/or cat need to have the license on the collar?

Although unlawful not to have your pet licensed it is not required to be on the collar; however it is strongly advised. A rabies tag is not a pet license.

Can I shoot a dog that’s on my property?

Only in cases of self defense.

I got a tag from my veterinarian, isn’t that the pet’s license?

No, that is your pet’s rabies tag; a license should be obtained at the Kitsap Humane Society, or any County or City building, usually located in thier vehicle licensing Department.
