cutty6West Columbia Gorge Humane Society (WCGHS) is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill animal shelter in Washougal, Washington. Established in 1994, our programs and services are carried out by a mostly volunteer staff dedicated to caring for animals and finding them forever homes. We operate both a cat shelter and a dog shelter, as well as an extensive foster home program and other programs to support animals in the local community.

What is our mission?

West Columbia Gorge Humane Society aims to eliminate unnecessary euthanasia of healthy or treatable companion animals in the community and find them permanent, loving homes.

What is our long-term goal?

Our intent is to make Clark County the first no-kill county in the State of Washington. We plan to accomplish this through implementing low cost spay and neuter clinics, Trap/Neuter/Release (TNR) of feral cat colonies, and by working in conjunction with our fellow shelters to benefit all animals in the community.
