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!

Looking for a way to help homeless cats in Whitman County? Sign up for our TNR Program!

Spaying and neutering cats is the best way to keep cat populations in check. Overpopulation of cats leads to illness, injury, deformities, damage of property, and more. Since Whitman County allows healthy adult cats to roam free we must turn away all healthy adult cats. However, if you are sure that the cats are not owned and would like to help, you can volunteer to trap and transport them to and from the participating clinics (Affordable Vet Care in Moscow and TLC in Palouse). They will be spayed/neutered and vaccinated for rabies and WCHS will cover the cost! 

This is beneficial for everyone as we are constantly being brought kittens from feral cat colonies that are sick, injured, and in need of help. Spaying and neutering the parents will help us reduce the number of kittens that suffer from the effects of overpopulation every year. 

If you know of a place where community cats congregate and want to help them, sign up for the TNR Program today!
