Save A Life Today!

     Kent Animal Shelter is a private nonprofit organization with a history of nearly a half century in caring for homeless animals. We don't receive government funding. We rely on the generosity of caring individuals, foundations, and businesses to carry out our work. All donations are tax-deductible.


How Your Donations Help


     Your donations save the lives of pets every day:


  • food and shelter for homeless pets

  • spay/neuter, vaccines, vet screening, microchipping for all pets

  • special veterinary care for injured or deformed pets

  • adoption services

  • rescue transportation

  • humane education

  • & more!


    Your donation in any amount is so appreciated. In addition, there are many other ways to help (see below).

Riley is a rescue from a high kill shelter in Texas. Because he had a hind leg injury, he was scheduled to be destroyed the next day. Because of his heartwarming personality, a rescue pulled him literally from death row and sent him to the Kent Shelter. Riley is just one of the rescues that needs medical attention. Your gift will make certain that he gets the care he needs.
