The Wenatchee Valley Humane Society was incorporated on January 27, 1967. The group convinced the City of Wenatchee to allow them to take over the old city pound on Worthen Avenue and Animal Control in 1974. Because the conditions were overcrowded, Gwyneth and Bruce Mitchell donated orchard land and our current shelter was built and opened in 1976. Soon the Humane Society discovered we needed more dog kennels and added on to the building in 1980.
In June of 2003, the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society opened Club Pet Boarding & Grooming. Club Pet is a boarding and grooming facility owned and operated by the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society. All revenues generated by Club Pet are used to support the Humane Society’s orphaned pets, on-going programs and future goals. Club Pet’s mission is to provide a fun, safe and caring environment for your owned pets while you are away.
Now for 2010 we are moving in the direction to build a new facility as we have outgrown our current shelter. We look forward to continuing to grow and help the animals that depend on us in our community.
The Wenatchee Valley Humane Society is a 501(c)3 organization, your donation(s) may be tax deductible. We are an independent shelter, meaning we receive no outside support or funding from other local or national organizations and that we rely on donations and support from our local community. If you would like to volunteer, donate or more information on how you can help us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (509) 662-9577.
The Wenatchee Valley Humane Society participates in 6 Pawsitive Alliance adoption events each year in various locations and holds Adopt-a-thons when the shelter begins to overflow. Visit www.wenatcheehumane.org and select Events from the About menu to view our upcoming events.

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
