The Washburn County Area Humane Society along with the Spooner Chamber of Commerce Jack O' Lantern Festival is holding a Dog Parade and Costume Contest.
Join us on Saturday, October 19 in Downtown Spooner for this fun event! Dress up your furry friend and parade around the parade route and then walk the red carpet in front of a panel of judges! And if you're really adventurous, you and your dog can dress up in matching costumes. Whether you walk your dog in the parade or just come to watch and cheer on your favorites, everyone is invited!
- All dogs must remain leashed and with an adult at all times
- No puppies under four months
- Rabies and vaccinations must be current & must wear I.D tags
- No dogs in heat or aggressive dogs
More information on the exact parade route and registration area will be available soon.
Do you have surplus office supplies? We are in desperate need of copy paper and a printer.
Cat litter, laundry detergent, bleach, and cleaning supplies are also needed.
We couldn't take care of the community's needy animals without the generosity of all of you who donate in so many wonderful ways. Thank you!
COMMITTEE MEMBERS WANTED
The most effective animals shelters have a strong, enthusiastic, involved volunteer group. As this new year begins, those interested in being a part of WCAHS have an opportunity to help in a variety of ways, but right now Committee Members are wanted, especially with Fundraising and also with a Buildings and Grounds group. So many people have knowledge, time, and talent that could be so beneficial to the shelter. It would not be a demanding, time restrictive position to be in, just a helpful one.
To briefly explain, fundraising would not only be putting ideas together, but helping to coordinate the event and helping with it. Several of the fundraisers are well established but new ideas are always welcome. Fundraising is an necessary means of supporting the continued operation of the animal shelter.
Building and grounds would be helping with upkeep of both the building and the outdoor area, landscaping assistance, and possibly helping design/build the catio which is a project not completed at the time the building was opened, plus seeing other ideas which may be beneficial.
If you would like to be a part of a committee, please call 715-635-4720 or you may email email@example.com
You will be added to the list and then notified of a meeting time and place. Thank you.
UPDATE ON KURANDA BED DONATIONS
Thank you to the people who have already ordered Kuranda Beds!!!! The dogs love the beds which help to make the animals more comfortable while waiting for their new forever homes!!!!
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.

PET OF THE WEEK
Acorns are falling from the autumn oaks;
And it’s a bumper crop;
Covering our walkways and lawns;
Will they ever stop?
I’m a sweet little boy named “Acorn,”
And I hope you won’t blame me, when you’re hit right on the noggin, bombarded by a tree!
I’m a playful orange and white kitty,
only six months old;
An outgoing little guy, a joy to cuddle and hold;
Though the Shelter’s a pretty nice place to stay,
I hope you’ll stop by and adopt me today!
Also Available for Adoption:
Many great cats (all ages)!
F Hound mix, F Walker Hound,
M & F white and tan Hounds,
M Boxer mix, Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix
