As always this year’s Santa Paws was a huge success! Many beautiful photos were taken with Santa. We even had Mrs. Clause with us this year along with Little bit the mini pony. Lots of interest was expressed in adopting our kitties. Ornaments and homemade dog biscuits were a big success. Even our “Gift Wrapping” station was a big convenience to all shoppers! Thank you all who participated, we couldn’t do it without you! Look for us again Next Year!
Beautiful prints and watercolors, a baby quilt and wall hanging were auctioned off.
Thank you all who participated!
Wallowa County Humane Society Raffle
Thank you all who participated in our raffle for a beautifully framed landscape oil painting by the late local artist Bob Fergison. A special thank you to Wallowa Valley Festival of the Arts Council and the Josephy Center in Joseph for making this a successful event.
A big thank you to Gary Bethscheder, owner of the Subborn Mule, for inviting us to participate again this year in the Thunder Run. $5 dollars was donated to the Wallowa County Humane Society for each dinner sold at his restaurant Thursday night. We made a lot of contacts and visited with a lot of people both local and tourists. Gary supports the Wallowa County Humane Society year round by having our donation can at his Restaurant.
Our Outreach Trailer was set up once again for four days at the Wallowa Co. Fair. We visited with lots of folks from around the county and visitors to the area too. Raffle tickets for the Bob Fergison's oil painting were sold as were some of our other items. Three kitties were adopted that morning on the way to the fair. Our two entries, "Animal Sanctuary " entered under Collection for an organization, and one of our Scrapbooks, entered under Crafts, took a blue ribbon, each. This is one of many ways that we participate around the community.
Our locally famous WCHS outreach trailer participated in this year's Watershed Festival, held each year on the last Friday in June at the Wallowa County Fairgrounds. The Watershed Festival is always a fun-filled event for kids and grown-ups, with many attractions that will both entertain and educate.
We handed out animal-related material for the kids, and sharing information about what we're doing for the people and pets of Wallowa County. No animals were adopted this year at the Festival, but we had lots of folks stop by to take a look!

What better way to celebrate the Valentine's Day spirit than to “Share Your Heart”!
We held events at the Info Center, Ace Hardware and Copper Creek Mercantile. Our volunteers met with the community to answer questions, hand out info and Valentine's Day candy. We also took information from those wanting to adopt or volunteer and people new to Wallowa County.
Volunteers Cassie and her husband David were also at the Banquet manning our Trade table. Thank you Volunteers!
January 2017 started off with one of our own Humane Society Volunteers receiving a Citizen Award for Leader of the Arts at the Wallowa County Chamber Awards Banquet.
Lots of volunteers attended showing their support. Congratulations Tom!
In 2016, Wallowa County Humane Society found homes for just over 50 of our four-legged friends!
"Between November and December, 2016, we had our Santa Paws and Silent Auction. Together they brought in over $500 for our Pets! And, funds were also raised for Morgan Meow Meow's surgery! Another successful fundraiser!"
