All HSWC animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations before adoption (if species appropriate). Application and counseling is required prior to all adoptions.
Individuals interested in adopting a puppy are STRONGLY encouraged todownload and read this FREE ebook. Even if you've raised puppies in the past, this is an invaluable resource to help make your new addition successful!
Please note that visual breed identification of companion animals has been proven to be unreliable, so for most of our animals we provide a best guess at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each of our animals as an individual and do our best to describe and place pets based on personality not breed label.
Loki was surrendered to the local shelter and has had very little socialization in his young life. He will require a family committed to working with him and helping him to adjust to family life. He is currently in a foster home and are working on his social skills but is very timid and afraid. Loki weighs 18 pounds and is around 1 year old. August Update: He is now house trained and crate trained. He will approach humans for treats but otherwise does not show much interest in interacting with them. PLEASE NOTE: Loki is VERY scared. He does not currently want human interaction and will take time before he can be walked on a leash or cuddled and loved on. He MUST have a fenced yard and there must be another well socialized dog in the home.
The Humane Society of Washington County was primarily an organization that provided spay and neuter funding for low income families. Spay and neutering is still at the front of our organization but we have also incorporated fostering and adoptions of animals. We are committed to see our community to become a no kill community. Our organization is not funded by local government, we rely only on spay neuter grants and fund raising. We have grown tremendously in the last year with over 100 dogs in foster care. Our cat program began in November of 2014 and is expanding into a feral program. We have 35 cats in our program and have located barns in our area that will let us place feral cats if individuals do not want them returned to their neighborhoods. We continually fund those in need of spay or neuter as well as all animals prior to adoption are spayed or neutered. To continue to grow, we need donations for our programs and those links are available on our website under giving. We also need volunteers. The volunteer application is also available on our website. Working together we will become a no kill community.
