TNR Homes Needed


Do you have a barn or out building where you need a little rodent control? Or perhaps you’d just like to have some feline friends on your property? Look no further, WCHS is looking for OUTDOOR cat homes for our feral (unfriendly) cats that others unfortunately can’t put back on their property.

The qualifications to “adopt” are:

    • Barn/Out building where the cats can be safe from harsh weathers/seek shelter from predators
    • Ability to do a 2-3 week quarantine for each new cat in a room/crate they cat cannot get out of
    • Provide food and water
    • The new caretaker should want to make verbal attempts to bond with them. Even though these cats are not friendly in shelter environments, they may become friendly to the caretakers.

All cats put through our TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) program get spayed/neutered, a left ear tip, which signifies they are part of an outdoor community that is cared for and have been fixed, and a rabies shot (depended on age/weight).  All of this comes at no cost to you if you are in Washington County!

Interested? Call WCHS at 262-677-4388 and ask for Jessie or Tina for more details!



Old Dog Gathering


Dates:   February 19    March 19      April 9

February 19th, March 19th and April 9th – Time:  3:00-4:00pm

Cost:  $10 per Session       

Limit:  10 Dogs



Think of this as a senior center activity for your aging canine companion.  Have some fun with your senior dog (or dog of any age with limitations) in a warm, dry environment when the weather may be cold and blustery or the yard ankle deep in mud.  This will not be a structured class.  Low impact games and activities will be available for you and your dog to have fun with, or just take a leisurely stroll around the training room.  The extent of the dog’s participation will be at the discretion of the pet parent.  The hour will end with a discussion of the challenges and rewards of caring for an aging/disabled dog.  Refreshments for both humans and canines will be available.  This is an excellent opportunity to spend some quality time with your buddy and talk with others meeting the challenge of caring for this population of companion animal.

Each gathering is considered a separate activity.  Participation will be limited to 10 dogs per gathering.  The cost for the hour is $10.00 per gathering.  Call the Washington County Humane Society to reserve your spot for the month or months of your choosing – 262 677-4388.
