For pet adoptions, we are putting in place a heightened protocol that complies with the Social Distancing Requirements and will minimize person-to-person interactions. Beginning today, the procedure for adopting an animal from WCHS is as follows:
Complete the online adoption application. You will be asked to provide your name and email address as ‘authentication’ before being able to access the online application.
Once submitted, the WCHS staff will review the application and call you to set up an appointment to meet the animal at the shelter.
After the meeting, if you choose to adopt, the staff will set up an appointment with you to pick up the animal ‘curb-side.’
When you arrive at WCHS to pick up your new pet, a staff member will meet you outside, ask you to sign the adoption contract, accept payment (if applicable) and bring your new pet directly to your car.
Please remember us when you shop on Amazon … support us with Amazon Smile or purchase items to donate to support the homeless animals of WCHS!
You don’t need an appointment to view animals – please see viewing hours below:
The mission of The Washington County Humane Society is to protect animals from suffering and cruelty, to provide care for animals afflicted by neglect and abandonment, and to enhance the lives of animals and people through education, adoption and compassion.
