Current Initiatives

Lost Pets Initiative

NKPC provides education and services to prevent pets from getting lost and to assure lost pets are reuntied with their owner as soon as possible. The initiative includes monthly free or low cost microchip events around the county, online guidelines for lost and found pets, and direct support to those who've lost their pets.

Each One Medical Fund

The Each One Medical Fund provides assistance for shelter animals in need of medical services that cannot be completed at the County shelter or may have an extended wait time to treat. NKPC conducts fundraisers and brings animals to community veterinarains for diagnostics, consultations and services from specialists and more complicated surgical procedures.

S.O.S. Owner Retention

The number of animals who are surrendered to shelters by loving and responsible owners who are in crisis is a community challenge. Shelter space ideally should be saved for homeless pets who truly have no other options. NKPC provides support for local families with temporary, short term, low cost services that will keep a pet in their own loving home.

Fosters to the Rescue

The number of animals who can be saved from a county shelter is limited by the ability of rescue partner organizations to take custody of and respnsibility for shelter pets. NKPC sponsors individual animals with special needs or on deadline with funding to support the rescue (or adopter) who pulls the pet and conducts events/outreach to recruit foster homes for the community rescues. is bringing attention to some of the most vulnerable animals at our local shelters and rescue organizations.
