Join Us In Our Mission

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.

Join us as we prepare for our first ever Virtual Event … Run/Walk – Ride – Kayak – do Aerobics or Weight Training.  No matter what you choose to do – just do you while raising awareness for WCHS!  Share your passion and our mission…

PLEASE NOTE:  Everyone entering the building  must wear a mask

In light of the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) spreading throughout the country, The Washington County Humane Society (WCHS) is taking the following steps to minimize the risks of the virus for everyone in the shelter and our community, but particularly those who are most vulnerable…people over 60 and those with underlying health conditions.  For more information on our new protocol please click the button.


Adoption Procedure:

WCHS is doing animal viewings by appointment. We ask that you fill out the online interactive application, which is located above the available animal pictures. After submitting your application please do not call the shelter – we will call you.  After completing the application, we will review the application, which may include needing to call a landlord/condo association. Once we are able to complete the check we will call you to set up a time to view the animals. If there is a particular animal you were interested please let us know upon setting up your appointment.
