Our mission is to relieve the suffering of area companion animals and to educate the public on the importance of and necessity for altering all companion animals.

Our Adoption Process:
By application (go to www.poteaupets.org and click on the Adoption Form link near top of page) dogs range from $90 to $ 100, cats are $50, puppies are $40 , kittens are $25. . Adopter of kittens and puppies too young to be altered before adoption will be asked to sign an agreement to have the adopted animal spayed or neutered on or near a date suggested by the PVHS counselor. Follow-up is done. Because PVHS is 90% volunteer organization, whose volunteers work other 40-hr. week jobs, the adoption process may take 4-5 days to complete. Every effort is given to expedite the process as much as possible once an application and photos are received! Adopt from the best shelter in Eastern Oklahoma - Poteau Valley Humane Society!
