We are dedicated to providing humane care and treatment to all animals needing protection, returning lost animals to their owners, matching suitable homes with orphan animals, providing humane education to the public, and providing humane euthanasia when necessary.

The Washington County Humane Society was incorporated in 1968. A volunteer Board of Directors, elected by The Washington Country Humane Society members, establishes policies and operational guidelines.

Our shelter cares for over 3000 animals per year. When brought to the shelter, each animal is examined and given a temporary vaccination. Stray dogs must be held for 7 days, cats are held for 2 days. After that period the animals are available for adoption to a new home. Once a loving, responsible home is found, the adopter pays a nominal fee for adoption. This fee goes towards food, shelter, laundry costs, cleaning supplies, protective medications, veterinary costs, and employee wages. the spay/neuter deposit is returned when the new pet is spayed or neutered, vaccinated against rabies, and licensed. These three things are required of the new owner, because we strongly advocate spaying and neutering as a solution to the growing problem of animal over-population.
