COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT

We have been approved to perform adoptions for our ready-to-go animals and provide Pet Food Bank assistance both by appointment only! Please review the information below on how we are operating to prevent exposure and spread of COVID-19. Some services are still limited or halted, but feel free to call if you have questions!

Interested in adoption? Read below to see how that will look!

>> First, apply for the animal of your choice through our website using the form here.  

>> Once staff receives your application we will give you a call (so make sure the number you provide on your application is a good one!) And do an over the phone counseling with you!

>> We will still need proof of address and Landlord approval (for renters) which you can email to us at shelter@whitmanpets.org!

>> Once we have all of those pieces in place and you are approved we will schedule a time with you to pick up your pet!

Thank you for your support and understanding during this difficult time.  Stay healthy!


WCHS values the human/animal bond, provides stewardship for homeless pets and promotes compassionate treatment of all companion animals. With your help we can make a difference. Learn more and get involved.

Shelter Donations

In-kind donations are donations of food, toys, and supplies that the shelter staff use to care for our animals.  Our webpage for In-kind donations is always up to date and can be found here.  

Below is a list of items that are always accepted.  If you have items not on this list please contact the shelter staff to determine if it is an item we can accept.  Please do not leave items at the shelter without first confirming they are items we need. 

Donations that cannot be used by the shelter can create additional strain on our resources and be costly.  We have limited storage capacity and space is a valuable resource.  Items that cannot be used require disposal or must be taken to another donation center which can cost us money and takes up staff time.  We understand the good intentions but ask that you please verify it is something we can utilize.  Thank you!
