The mission of The Washington County Humane Society is to protect animals from suffering and cruelty, to provide care for animals afflicted by neglect and abandonment, and to enhance the lives of animals and people through education, adoption and compassion.
Our adoption process is designed to ensure we make the right match for the animals in our care and the people who are adding a new family member to their home. Prospective adopters meet with an adoption counselor and discuss their lifestyle and interests. The adoption counselor will then match that information with an animal’s social, exercise and training needs.
Each situation, adopter and animal requires a different approach. And while we reserve the right to deny an adoption, we make every effort to work with you to address concerns or find the most appropriate match for you. Please plan on spending at least one hour for adoption counseling and another ½ hour for the actual adoption.
