Who We Are

 The West Columbia Gorge Humane Society was created in April, 1994 and is a volunteer-run, non-profit, private "no-kill" shelter dedicated to helping find loving families for unwanted and homeless cats and dogs, promoting spaying and neutering and sharing humane education with the public. We provide healthy, adoptable companions which are spayed and neutered prior to adoption or will be at 4 1/2 months of age. Our cat shelter has a home-like free roaming environment. Our dog kennels are like home and they are on a schedule with our volunteer dog walkers. Animals adopted through us are tested for disease, have vaccinations appropriate to their age and have been treated for any parasites. A microchip is included. Kittens and puppies underweight or underage will be neutered under contract at the appropriate time.
