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.
Notice: This a courtesy Posting only! This dog is not available through Humane Society of Washington County. Please contact the owner for more information. Domino has a story to tell. Domino was left in a dropbox at a county shelter in the middle of the night. The director was shocked when she opened the door of the cage and found an emaciated dog with every rib showing (see picture). Domino weighed less than 1/2 of what she should have weighed. After extensive testing, it was found that Domino has a condition called Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, which means that her body does not absorb nutrients from food. To treat this condition, Domino must have a prescribed enzyme mixed in each meal (she eats 2x a day). As you can see in the pictures, she has thrived on this medication. The monthly cost is approximately $40. Domino likes all other dogs. She has become fast friends with a cranky middle-aged Chihuahua. They love to play and run with each other. Domino is very content to curl up next to you on the couch while you watch tv. And one of her favorite spots is sitting behind her person on the office chair. You can also see that she loves the heat, whether it be a fire or a furnace vent. Domino is learning to potty outside. She does very well, but still has a way to go. Domino would do best in a home where she has a playful canine companion or someone who is home most of the day. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

Adoption fees for cats are $80.00.
