SHARE YOUR HEART – TAKE PART!
“Share Your Heart – Take Part! That’s the motto of a Public Awareness Program, created by Wallowa County Humane Society Board Member Judi Taylor. She hopes this will catch on, not just locally, but in communities across the United States.
The heart-shaped graphic, with our Wallowa County Humane Society Logo in the center, is Free for Use for Any Humane Organization, along with the message “Share Your Heart ˜ Take Part.” Just substitute your own logo and contact phone numbers.
Designed to promote public awareness of the stray pet population in America today, Judi printed this logo on stickers for business windows. Supportive businesses in our community display the sticker to help promote the program.
Your generous tax-deductible donations and grants keep us going.
All donations are used for local programs benefiting the residents, animal and human, of Wallowa County. Like most humane societies and shelters, we cooperate with other agencies but are not affiliated with them.
The WCHS offers discount vouchers for spaying/neutering. Neutered or spayed pets are less likely to have behavioral problems such as aggression, poor discipline or roaming. They can have longer lives and less illness. Neutered cats will spray less often. Millions of pets are euthanized annually for lack of a home. You can help avoid these tragedies by making sure your pets don’t add to overpopulation. In 2010, 436 cats were either spayed or neutered.
Save $10 with a voucher when you spay or neuter your pet! Just print the voucher and take it to your veterinarian. All local vets accept the voucher.
Feral Cat Program
The WCHS catches, spays/neuters and releases feral cats. Cats that can adapt to adoption are placed in foster homes until adopted. Over time, this reduces the feral cat population without having to euthanize healthy animals.
Unwanted pets are fostered by our volunteers until they are adopted. Take a look at our Adopt A Cat page to see what is available. Your new companion may be there!
We provide an educational program for area schools and organizations.
- Report it to the Sheriff’s office at 541-
- Notify our local radio station KWVR, 426-
- Call Mary, Chair of the WCHS Dog Committee, at 426-
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.
