Mission Statement

The Humane Society of Washington County exists to improve the quality of life for abused, neglected, and unwanted animals. We shelter those at risk and provide educational venues that strive to deepen individual commitment to humane values such as kindness, compassion, personal responsibility and respect for all living things. These are qualities we believe are essential to make a better world for both the animals and people in our community.


We provide shelter for homeless and abused animals, as well as adoption, humane education and foster programs, spay neuter assistance and food bank programs.
