Although many prefer to bury their companion animals, some choose cremation as an acceptable alternative. Our caring staff is available to guide you through the cremation planning process…answering questions, making arrangements, and ensuring your beloved pet receives a dignified disposition.

“Teaching a child not to step on a caterpillar is as valuable to the child as it is to the caterpillar…” Bradley Miller Education is a large component of The Washington County Humane Society’s mission. Our Humane Educator goes into schools, after-school programs and day care centers teaching children about responsible pet care, bite prevention, and the role of the Humane Society in their community. Scout and church groups visit the shelter for tours and presentations as well. Approximately 1500 school-age children benefit from these programs annually.
WCHS recognizes that unexpected things can happen in our lives that require us to make changes. Please know that we will do everything in our power to ensure your surrendered animal is placed in a responsible, loving home.
It is the goal of WCHS to provide training programs that result in happy, confident and obedient dogs as well as happy, confident and satisfied owners. We believe that our relationships with dogs should be achieved through comprehensive obedience training and owner education. We further believe that it is important to provide training classes in a positive environment to enable dogs to become safe, well-behaved, and valued family members. Dogs that have more serious behavior concerns requiring specific behavior correction may be referred to a behavior specialist.
