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.

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.

WCHS Programs

Spay/Neuter Program

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.

Adoption

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!

Education

We provide an educational program for area schools and organizations.

Pet Therapy Program

The second Wednesday of every month, we visit the Wallowa Senior Living Center with our friendly therapy pets.  For more info and to participate in this great program, call Sue Barcik, our Pet Therapy Program Coordinator, at 541-432-3907.
