Releasing your pet to the Humane Society can be a difficult decision to make. We would like you to know that we understand and appreciate your efforts to come to us where your animal will be safely and humanely cared for.
Please realize that releasing an animal to The Humane Society is a final decision, as you will be transferring ownership of the animal to us. We will do what we feel is in the best interest of the animal, using our experience and available resources. We strongly advise that you include all members of your immediate family and/or household in your decision to release the animal prior to bringing your pet to our organization.
Many unwanted animal behaviors can be corrected, enabling pets to successfully remain in the family. If you would like information about training or other solutions for keeping your pet, please call us at 360-642-1180. We will be happy to assist you or refer you to others who can help.
If any serious mental/physical disease factor is found, the animal will be euthanized (humanely put to death). Many times the kindest, most humane act we can do for an animal is to euthanize him. Regardless of our decision, the animal will be treated in a loving, humane manner.
We try to keep the animal as long as he remains healthy and well-adjusted to the kennel environment. We attempt to place the animal in a responsible home where the animal will be considered a part of the family and a friend for life.
Because we are a non-profit organization operating on donations, we ask for a contribution when you admit your animal. Your donation helps ensure we can continue to provide quality care.
We are not animal control; we do not pick up stray animals. Only animal control agencies, by law, are permitted to handle strays. We are the housing facility for the stray animals of South Pacific County. By contract, we hold these animals for a minimum of 72 hours, giving the owners a reasonable time period to redeem their animal(s). Once the 72-hour impound period is over, the animals belong to The Humane Society and are made available for adoption.
Sorry, we are not able to accept injured or abandoned wildlife. Contact the Wildlife Center of the North Coast at (503) 338-0331. For emergencies, call their pager at (503) 338-3954.
