We know it's important to you that your donation is being used effectively. It's important to us, too. That's why we work hard to be accountable and transparent. We have a responsibility to our community and our donors and work hard to ensure long-term sustainability of the organization.
The Whitman County Humane Society (WCHS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Our tax-ID number is 91-2054548 and donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law
In order to accurately report numbers as well as maintain transparency in how we operate, WCHS publishes our annual shelter report numbers for the public to review. WCHS strives to track all animal intakes and surrenders so that we can make data driven decisions regarding funding, space and our community outreach.
Overview of total unclaimed animal numbers from 2015 - 2019
A look at the percentage of unclaimed animals that are kittens.
Pullman City code allows cats to roam freely but sick or injured strays will be addressed. WCHS will admit cats that are sick, injured, pregnant, nursing, or under 6 months of age. While the majority of cats we see are kittens, we still take in 30-50 adult cats a year.
This chart shows the growth of WCHS and the ability to take in dogs. It also shows that most of the dogs we take are surrendered and not abandoned.
We are happy to report that the abandonment of dogs is not a major problem in our area as many of our stray dog intakes go home to their owners.
