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!!!

I am a police officer in a near by jurisdiction. I have had the pleasure of working with a few of the members of Washington County Humane Society a couple of times. They have always been willing to assist whenever I have called. Three members of the facility came out and helped remove dozens of cats out of a residence a couple years back. They maintained their professionalism while attempting to catch these cats, many feral, some deceased, all while explaining the process to the homeowner and helping keep them calm during a traumatic event. The individuals were hoarders and appeared to be experiencing some mental health issues.

The members of the WCHS have always been willing to help, whether it'd be answering any questions I had or by loaning out live traps to assist with catching a loose animal. Every time I have spoken to someone there or have visited the facility, I've been greeted with a smile and an eagerness to help.

This organization is always trying to improve with the limited resources it has. Their priority is to find loving homes for their animals. I'm amazed at what they are able to accomplish. WCHS took in a mini potbellied pig that no other animal shelter in the area was willing to accept. Not only were they willing to help this animal, they found Wilbur a loving home in a very short amount of time!

I can't say enough good things about this organization. They are truly deserving of this acknowledgment and would utilize it to help benefit the animals.
