About Our Shelter:

Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Pioneer Humane Society, a non-profit 501(3)c organization, is to promote and provide humane treatment of animals through education and fostering/sheltering/adopting homeless animals. Its programs and services are administered through PAWS (Pendleton Animal Welfare Shelter). PAWS serves the community by reducing pet population through spay/neuter programs and maintains a commitment not to euthanize healthy adoptable animals.

Come Meet our Pets:

Due to construction, all animals are located in foster homes. Please contact the shelter to make arrangements to meet a potential pet. We hope to be open by Summer 2012!

Our Adoption Process:

All animals adopted are spayed and neutered and will be current on shots. As a Humane Society, it is our policy to help fight pet overpopulation by only adopting out altered animals. Adoption is easy. We have a two-page application for you to fill out, we interview you, and have you meet the animal upfront.

Once we know it is a good match, we congratulate you on being a proud new owner. We do ask a fee for adoption of our animals. This fee helps us recoup spay/neuter cost, shots, worming, food and shelter costs. The normal adoption fee for dogs is $125. Discounts may be available for senior pets or sponsored pets.

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.
