Shelter Cats Visit Women’s Prison To Get Love And Give Purpose


The Kitsap Humane Society (KHS) are sending shelter cats to prison, but don’t worry, it’s for a very good reason! They have a program in which inmates are paired with stray cats, they call it the Pawsitive Prison Program.

In this program, the inmates at the Mission Creek Corrections Center for Women take care of the shelter cats and give them the attention that they need. This way the cats are also socialized, thus preparing them for adoption.


In return, the cats give the women friendship and companionship. It’s a win-win for everyone!

Watch the video below for the full story!

KHS needs donations so the program will continue to be a success. You can send your donations by dropping them off at their donation bin or at the front desk of the KHS shelter at 9167 Dickey Road NW Silverdale, Washington. You can also purchase items in their Amazon wishlist.
