Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Whitman County Humane Society values the human/animal bond, provides stewardship for homeless pets and promotes compassionate treatment of all companion animals.
Out of deep respect for companion animals, WCHS provides:
- A modern, humane sheltering facility for homeless pets
- Affordable spay/neuter program
- Adoption services for homeless animals
- Community education and opportunities for community service
The Whitman County Humane Society is a nonprofit organization supported primarily through the donations of caring residents. WCHS operates a "no-kill" (except in cases of aggression or lifelong illness), limited-admission shelter located in Pullman that serves all of Whitman County. The Whitman County Humane Society contracts with Pullman, Albion, and Palouse to provide care for stray dogs found within their city limits. Dogs, cats, and other domesticated pet animals whose owners can no longer care for them are accepted on a space-available basis, provided that they are in good health and are of good temperament. Animals are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. There is a $35 fee for all animals surrendered by their owners.
The WCHS shelters any type of pet animal until it can be adopted. This includes dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, reptiles, birds, rodents, rabbits, guinea pigs and other pocket pets.
Kittens are generally available from May to November.
All pets at our shelter are evaluated for adoptability.
