Shelter Updates

As the residents of Malden and Pine City were impacted by the devastating fire, so too were the four-legged members of the community.  Whitman County Humane Society began receiving victims of the fires not long after the smoke cleared.  Three cats in particular were in need of substantial medical care but the team at WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital thought that these animals had a chance.  Our community rallied around this disaster and we raised the funds to provide the care these cats needed.  They still have a long road ahead of them but we are grateful that we were able to get the best care for them.
