WCHS staff and volunteers are continuing to find new ways to build awareness and raise funds/donations. I love their use of social media with available animals for adoption or letting us know if a desperately needed item. I have adopted 2 cats and a dog from this shelter. They do a wonderful job with the animals to be sure they go to a furever home.

We have adopted our dog and 2 cats from the WCHS. The time and effort that is put into their website is a great aid in searching for your new furever family member. The staff and volunteer team are very helpful. Additionally there are paperwork policies in place that aid in making sure all areas of the adoption process are covered for both the animals and new owner. The fees are very reasonable for the amount of care, shots and micro chip your pet receives before leaving their care.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

only wish that they continue to get all of the funding and volunteer support they need to keep up with their mission and care of the animals.

Incredible caring and professional staff. They make sure the animals are released to safe homes. They care a lot when needing to put our dogs down and even at times of incredible hardship, the staff gave us comfort. We also received a follow up condolence card which was a special extra touch!! A no kill shelter and we need hundreds more just like WAshington County Humane Society!!!

Amazing volunteers, staff and management who are devoted to the care of their animals. Everything possible is done to make sure that the time the animals spend there is filled with plenty of interaction, medical attention and affection. They not only take strays and owner surrenders, but also pull from Madacc when space permits. They take care to see that the animals are placed in wonderful homes.

The Washington County Humane Society are very dedicated and passionate to not only the animals but to other staff and clients as well. They do their best to accommodate to each animal's specific needs, and they have a very nice website show casing all the animals. Overall, they are a wonderful place to volunteer at and adopt a loving animal from!!

I have taken 3 cats to be spayed or neutered in the Barn Buddy program. They are caring and professional. I have been looking for an adult dog to adopt and they have been very candid about the animals in their facility helping me make the right choice for my situation.

Every time I walk through the facility, it makes me proud to be a volunteer here. Staff and volunteers are always busy keeping things immaculate. Dogs and cats have individual kennels with all sorts of creature comforts to reduce their stress, and each cage/kennel is completely emptied and cleaned from top to bottom every day. Dogs are walked and exercised by volunteers, and if there aren't enough volunteers, the staff pitches in. Cats have their own type of volunteers who take them out for one-on-one socialization...petting, grooming, play. That's what I do, and it is more rewarding than I could have imagined. I expect that the every volunteer, in every category, would say the same thing. The staff is amazing and dedicated. Potential adopters are assisted by an adoption counsellor to ensure a good match. This is a very impressive shelter, and deserves high praise.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
