The Garage Sale is back! We've had some very nice items donated to the sale, so come on by the shelter and check it out! Or if you have items to donate, better hurry - Saturday is the last day to drop them off.
All proceeds from the sale go to supporting WCAHS and it's mission - to help animals that are homeless, abandoned, or stray to find new forever homes. While they are in the shelter, we work very hard to keep them healthy and happy until they are adopted.
WE'RE READY FOR VOLUNTEERS AND VISITORS STARTING AUGUST 1ST!
The shelter will be open for volunteers and visitors by appointment only. You must call or message our Facebook page to see what we have available and then we can make an appointment for you to come in and volunteer or visit with the animals. NO WALK INS.
Meet Earl and Buster & Scrappy - our July Calendar Photo Contest Winners.
Pablo came from a shelter in Bryan, Texas. Kennel cough, heartworm, terribly malnourished…the vet said he had very little chance of survival. He’s been with us for 6 years and is an energetic loving, sweet cuddle bug.
The last 6 of a litter of 10 kittens that were surrendered to WCAHS. All have found their forever homes.
KITTENS CONTINUE TO COME INTO THE SHELTER - FOSTERS NEEDED
**Because we provide all the litter and food for the fosters, we go through a lot of those supplies - quickly. We are in need of moist kitten food (Fancy Feast); hard kitten food (Purina One Kitten or Purina Kitten Chow), and non-clumping cat litter for kittens.**
Washburn County Area Animal Shelter Closed to the Public
To ensure the health and safety of the shelter employees, WCAHS will be closed to the public until further notice. During the closure, staff will continue to report to work to care for the animals. Volunteer hours have also been discontinued until further notice.
But we are happy to announce that adoptions will continue! Follow us on the shelter Facebook account or on PetFinder.com to see the cats and dogs currently available for adoption. If you see an animal you’re interested in, you can fill out an Adoption Application on this website, send it to the shelter and once approved, you will be notified. At that time, you can make an appointment to come in, meet the animal, and hopefully you and your new furry friend can go back home together!
We encourage everyone in the community to follow the CDC guidelines for staying healthy. We look forward to the day we can re-open our doors and share with each other our love and concern for our local pets.
Please note that cat and dog surrenders are by appointment only. Please contact the shelter at 715.635.4720 to schedule an appointment.
SPAY/NEUTER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM - "SNAP"
WCAHS has a "SNAP" program, available to those who need assistance with the cost of spaying or neutering their pet. We will be using our "Thomas Fund" established by one of our members in memory of her beloved cat, Thomas, plus money that donors have designated for our SNAP fund. The "SNAP" program allows you to use the veterinarian of your choice.
We are currently able to offer a $50 discount towards each surgery to those who qualify, while the funds last.
To download an application, go to the "About - Services" section of this website or call 715-635-4720 for more information.
Many people have been asking about our needs so we thought we would create an Amazon Wish List. We put together a list of everyday needs and tried to make it easy for those who would like to help out by giving a wide range of options. Items can be shipping directly to the shelter. There is an address on file with the list when you check out.
THANK YOU to all of you for always being so supportive.

The wonderful photos of the adoptable pets you see on this site are provided by our volunteer photographer - June Theisse. June does a great job capturing the unique personality of each animal.
PET OF THE WEEK - LUNA
II’ve got a sad story, so grab a few tissues;
I’m Luna, a sweet girl with medical issues;
I’m a three-year-old Pitbull, soon to be four,
and sometimes my back gets awfully sore;
The vet says my spine is in such bad condition,
that I need daily pain meds, by prescription;
They say my problem probably won’t be reversed,
And, the odds are, it will only get worse;
I enjoy my life now and love squeaky toys;
I’m an affectionate girl, full of much love
I’m seeking an adoptive home, or permanent
foster care; **
Is there any kind soul who’ll help me out there?
(**If you provide foster care for an animal like Luna,
WCAHS will pay for food, meds and veterinary care).
Also Available for Adoption: Many great cats and kittens!
Dogs: F Staffordshire Terrier, M Mixed breed (20 lbs.),
M Shepherd/Tosa Inu/Blue-Nosed Gotti mix.
