Thursday, June 4th 2021 we were surprised by Mrs. Evans Kindergarten Class in a BIG WAY! It was just 12:30 on that sunny afternoon and in walked about 20 of the proudest children we have ever seen! One of them handed over a big, bright orange box and said "please open this" with a big grin on his face. We opened the box and were stunned to find it FULL of money! $1,195.00 FULL OF CASH! As I read the note posted below aloud, my voice trembled and tears of joy fell from my eyes. These kids have hearts so big! In a world full of chaos, they chose to give back, to save the helpless, the ones that can't help themselves-the animals of our County. We are so very proud of these kids! THANK YOU! Mrs. Evans and 2021 Kindergarten Class: FRONT ROW: Finley, Kathy,Trinity, Jace ON THE COUCH: TJ, Trey, Arion, Remedy, Harley, London BEHIND THE COUCH: Kade, Steven, Carson, Orion,Colt, Jordan, Marshall, Emmet (holding the sign), Mary Perreault Gassett, Carol Vencill, Petie Evans.

We have a monthly volunteer orientation class for all volunteers and those wanting to become. Volunteer packets with important info will be given to each person in the class. Carol Vencill, WCHS president, will be conducting the volunteer orientation.
Volunteer Orientation classes will begin again in January. In the meantime, to learn more, you can view and download a summary of our standard Volunteer Orientation info as a PDF document.
Help us trap feral cats and keep the kitty population down! We need a volunteer or two to help trap and transport feral cats, so they can be spayed. This is the best way to prevent unwanted kittens from ending up in shelters, or worse.
Do you have a spare Havaheart or similar humane trap that you can donate? All our traps are in use, and there are still plenty of feral cats out there. You can drop off your traps at the WCHS Info Center, 119 E. Main Street in Enterprise. We’re open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
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.
Lots of kittens means we need to work hard at finding forever homes for the animals in foster care, in addition to running our Re-Tail Boutique center.
Please take a look at our wish list below. You can help us by donating wish list items to help keep Wallowa County Humane Society going strong.
Just drop off any donated item at our boutique at 119 E. Main Street in Enterprise. We are open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 11 am to 3 pm. If you chose to make a donation in store or on our web page we would be equally grateful!
We have a new sponsorship program that helps us to meet specific needs of our boutique, information center and reach out programs, for caring for the animals waiting for a forever home, and for us to be able to give back to our community.
Sponsorship Program Needs:
It has been an incredible opportunity to work with the community since we’ve been so visible. Together we have stepped up the Trap/Neuter/Release program since it began over 30 years ago. More lost “owners” have been reunited with their pets, and more people have come forward to volunteer, just to name a few wonderful things that have come our way since the Info Center opened in October 2014. We are continuing our efforts to establish a sanctuary in the future.
The Center is open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., except holidays. Our Center Volunteer Coordinator has set up a schedule which is posted at the Center. All volunteers are asked to pick dates and times to work at the Center. Each volunteer will be partnered with an experienced volunteer to start. Without volunteers, there is no Wallowa County Humane Society. The animals and the people of Wallowa County will be helped by our efforts.
Call Carol, 541-263-0336, to vounteer. We invite you to stop by and visit the Center to see the changes and progress we’re making as we go forward.
The WCHS Information Center is located at 119 E. Main Street in Enterprise.

5 million unwanted animals end up in shelters every year. You can help reduce this number by spaying or neutering your pet. Visit our Programs page for more info.
