Grade School Foster Reading Program

The WCHS offers a program which allows teachers to bring their grade school children to our center to read books to our foster animals. This program allows the students to practice their reading skills and take turns reading out loud in front of their peers and our attentive foster animals. Time is allotted for the children to interact with the foster animals and learn the importance of having a local Humane Society. Any teachers interested in this program, contact Carol Vencill at 541-263-0336.

 

 

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.

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 to see what is available. Your new companion may be there!
