This week, multiple volunteers, former employees, and adopters have spoken out about the conditions the dogs at Wet Noses Foster Paws (WNFP) are in.
They are known for transferring dogs from Mexico, Hawaii, Texas, etc. to the area.
Recently, they euthanized 3 dogs for “behavior issues” that appeared only after they arrived, and after passing behavioral tests at their original shelters.
Former employees are reporting dogs kept in crates for days at a time, under feeding dogs to reduce potty accidents, withholding care and services from animals as a form of retaliation for speaking up, and surrendering animals to Kitsap Humane.
I adopted my dog through WNFP and had a terrible experience. My pup was 20lb underweight and was extremely ill. I notified WNFP and they never responded. I ended up paying for treatment myself. Their communication was extremely unprofessional. They adopt out unaltered animals and provide no services for spay/neuter.
They have turned off commenting and tagging on Instagram, and are removing comments and reviews from Facebook. The owner is lying to rescues, saying this evidence is showing only temporary confinement.

I have a neighbor who doesn’t seem to mind blowing shit up every other night despite being asked politely to stop. I feel like it’s a long shot expecting anyone to come out and I honestly would rather not call them. I just would like my ptsd having self and my animals not freaking out.
Does anyone know of a pottery studio that either Currently is not sold out for upcoming classes, or preferably is available for open studio memberships? I am having trouble finding a pottery studio that has availability or that even offers open studio memberships. Or even know of somebody who has a home studio, wheel and kiln that could charge money to allow people to use it.
I bought a house (Eastside/McKinley area) three years ago, and one of the things I really looked forward to with homeownership was passing out candy to trick or treaters. It was a highlight of being a kid for me, and I was so excited to share that joy with the next generation. The first year I got a big bowl of candy, turned on all the house lights, and sat out on the porch. Nothing. I haven't bothered since.
This makes me really sad. I live right by an elementary school so I know there are kids in the neighborhood. Does everyone just go to rich areas to trick or treat, or is it just not a thing that happens anymore?
