We have two great dogs available for adoption!

Image of Jasmine, lost dog


Jasmine is 35 pounds, 11 years old.  Sheʼs a mixed breed and looks like a short-haired Border Collie.  She is black and white with blue eyes.  Jasmine wears a collar with a tag, and she is microchipped.

We last saw her on Thursday, October 8, as we hiked up Eagle Cap Mountain.  We had been camping at Mirror Lake in the Eagle Cap Wilderness.

If you find her, please secure her and call us!  We live in Bend, Oregon.   Please call (907) 750-5475, or (541) 639-7730.

Pet Therapy Visit

On the second Wednesday of every month at Alpine House, and the third Thursday of every month at the Senior Living Center, we bring our pet therapy animals to share the joy of soft fur, warm paws, and cold noses.  Dixie and Lola, the pet therapy dogs, are part of the visits at Wallowa Valley Senior Living.

Do you have a pet that you think would be perfect for interacting with seniors?  Call Sue Barcik, our Pet Therapy Program Coordinator, at 541-432-3907, and ask about making your pet a part of this great program!

October means cooler weather, but temps in the low 70s can still be dangerous for pets in vehicles.  Please remember to keep your pets safe if you take them with you on errands!

Sad-looking dog

Have you lost your dog or cat?

  • Report it to the Sheriff’s office at 541-426-3131
  • Notify our local radio station KWVR, 541-426-4577,
  • Call Mary, Chair of the WCHS Dog Committee, at 541-426-4170
  • Call the local veterinarian offices:
    • Double Arrow:  541-426-4470
    • Enterprise Animal Hospital:  541-426-3331
    • Red Barn Veterinary:  541-426-3832
Remember: A lost pet wearing a collar with a name and phone number has a much better chance of being returned to its home. Microchipping is a safe procedure. Pets react to insertion of a microchip about the same as they would to a typical vaccination. Microchipping will help to identify your pet no matter where it is found. Please see your veterinarian about microchipping your cat or dog.
