Washington Humane Society (The Society for the Prevention Of Cruelty to Animals) Overview
Programs: The Washington Humane Society's programs include Humane Law Enforcement, Humane Education, Low Cost Spay/Neuter, Community Outreach and an extensive Adoption program. We work to enforce the anti-cruelty laws in the District of Columbia through investigation and prosecution of animal abuse. Our Humane Education Department teaches compassion and respect for animals in schools everyday. WHS operates the District's only low cost Spay/Neuter clinic and spayed and neutered over 3,000 animals last year. Animal adoptions have risen every year for the last 15 years and over 3,500 animals found loving new homes last year.
