"All They Need Is You"

Here at WCHS, we rely heavily on the generosity of people, like you, who believe in our mission. In fact, charitable contributions cover a third of our operating expenses each year, which means we simply couldn’t help the animals without donations from community members.


If you are considering making a donation—whether it’s $10 or $10,000—know that you can support our mission with confidence. Of the 2,500 animals we care for each year, 100% of adoptable animals are placed in their forever homes. Less than 5% of animals are euthanized annually and no animal is denied needed surgery or medical care. 83% of lost dogs are reunited with their owners, far above the national average of 60%. And 20% fewer free-roaming cats are brought to the shelter since we began spay/neuter programs Barn Buddies and Trap, Neuter, Return. Our educational programs reach 2,500 community members each year. We have 400 active volunteers, the equivalent of 13 full-time staff members.
