About Wilmington Area Humane Society
About Our Shelter...
The Wilmington Area Humane Society is a non-profit organization founded in July 2002. We have a facility where we house our pets and they are cared for daily by a dedicated group of volunteers. We do not have daily open hours, but are very flexible in arranging appointments to see our adoptable pets. We have monthly adoption day open houses on the 3rd Sunday of every month, from 1-3 p.m. All of our pets are spayed/neutered, vet checked, up to date on vaccinations before they are adopted. We receive no government funding and are solely funded by donations from the community and grants. We take in dogs and cats on availability. We are very proud of our success, and hope that you would consider adopting a pet from the Wilmington Area Humane Society. We are grateful for donations of dry pet food, cat litter, cleaning supplies, or paper products such as paper towels and toilet paper. Please leave the items inside the side door gate or call our toll-free pager at 1-877-802-1633 to arrange a pick-up. For monetary donations, please mail to WAHS INC., P.O. Box 968, Wilmington, Ohio, 45177. Check out WAHS on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Wilmington-Area-Humane-Society/93257992586

Our Adoption Process...
There is a minimum adoption donation of $125 cash for dogs and $40 cash for cats (we are not set up to accept credit/debit cards). Dog Adoption donation includes an Ohio dog license, general vet check, spay/neuter, shots (including rabies), heartworm testing and heartworm preventative. Cat Adoption donation include general vet check, spay/neuter, FIV/Feline Leukemia, shots (including rabies). If the pet is too young to be spayed/neutered, a $20 voucher will be given when the procedure is done.
There is a pre-adoption survey, and an adoption contract that is signed at the time of the adoption. We will do out of state and in state adoptions, but we do not provide transport at this time.
