Important updates from Carol, our President:
It’s cold outside but it’s warm in your home. We’re always looking for volunteers to foster pets until they find their forever homes. Check out our Foster Program page for more info.
Please help us restock our Purina kitten chow. Our supply has been depleted due to so many kittens being helped. Our food barrels are out there, but very little kitten chow.

This is Mollie, a beautiful long-haired calico female. She is about 2 years old. Mollie was feral and is learning to be socialized. She would do best in a quiet home.

SANTA PAWS 2015
Adopting will put a beautiful smile on your face! Kyrie adopted Fuzz at the Santa Paws event, and she couldn’t be happier. Fuzz looks pretty content, too, knowing that he’s got a lifelong friend.
Everyone had a great time at our Santa Paws 2015 events. On December 5, 12, and 19, folks brought their pets and their camera to be photographed with Santa at the WCHS Center.
Thank you to all for your generous donations, and for purchasing Christmas ornaments from our tree. Your continued support in time and dollars keeps the Wallowa County Humane Society going strong!
BE MINDFUL OF TRAPS WHEN HIKING!
The fur trapping season in Wallowa County began November 15, and ends March 15, 2016. For bobcats, which is the most popular trapping target, it begins December 1 and ends February 28, 2016.
For more information, view the ODFW schedule. There are no changes for known trapping areas, except that the East Moraine is still posted by Wildlife Services for “management” trapping using kill traps.
If you hike in known trapping areas, remember to carry wire cutters and a length of rope to aid in the release of your animal if it gets caught in a trap. Please read our Trapping page for more information on what areas to avoid, and how to protect your pet.
