Our Adoptable Pet List

The Little Shelter in the Woods by the Bay

Who We Are

The Humane Society of Jefferson County WA is a small facility tucked away in the woods on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula. We are close to Port Townsend, a beautiful unspoilt Victorian Seaport, and we are just a hop, skip, and a jump (actually...a short ferry ride) from Victoria and Seattle area.

We are a non profit 501(c)(3) organization. We rely on donations. Our adoption rate is phenomenal and we all work tirelessly to find the perfect home for all of the abandoned and lost animals that make their weary way to our doors.

We have adopted animals to loving homes in Seattle, Tacoma, and even Canada, as well as to forever homes right here in town. We love to get photos and letters giving us updates on our adoptees - it makes it all worthwhile. Many of our visitors comment that we are a happy place, full of hope and love. We encourage you to come and visit us and find out for yourself.

News-We Need Volunteers

The Humane Society of Jefferson County WA is currently seeking volunteers to help with daily chores around the shelter. We always need volunteers willing to take our dogs for walks, train them and have play time in our enclosed outdoor run, as well as cleaning up after cats and socializing with them. Reaching out and touching a shelter animal's life will change yours! Please call the shelter at 385-3292 to get more information on how to become a volunteer today.

Adopting a friend

We invite you to come to our shelter and meet our guys and gals. Many of our most successful adoptions (and we have very few failures) have been from across "the water". In the majority of cases, people have made a day's outing out of the process and have been able to travel home with their brand new family member safely tucked up in their vehicle, ready to start the journey home to their new life.

Our phenomenal success rate for adoptions is due to our belief in accurate and honest information being available about all of our animals. If you come and see us, you will not be disappointed and we will tell you about the animals..."warts n' all".

Adoption cost for an adult cat is $85 and an adult dog ranges from $120-$250. This includes spaying or neutering, initial shots (does not include rabies vac.) and de-worming; as well as a free health exam from a participating veterinarian, a two week guarantee and educational materials for the adopter. The HSJCWA does its best to ensure that we adopt healthy companion animals.

Come Visit Us!

We are located just off of Jacob Miller Road, next to the Solid Waste Landfill. We are open Tuesday-Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. If you are interested in one of our animals you may call first to see if it is still available.
