Ways To Get Involved

Volunteers

West Columbia Gorge Humane Society is an organization which runs mainly through the efforts of volunteers — people who give their time to support and carry out our mission. Individuals and families willing to give a few hours will find that their skills and talents make a huge difference.

Foster

Help us save lives by providing a temporary, loving and restful retreat for animals in need. We provide all of the supplies, food and medical attention, so there is no cost to you as a foster parent… all you provide is love! When an animal needs some time to recover from a sickness or injury – or just needs to be socialized – we depend on our network of foster homes.  

Adopting a Pet

WCGHS works hard to find homes for every pet.
Our adoption counselors will work with you to make sure you and your new pet are the right fit.

Making a Donation

As an independent non-profit organization, West Columbia Gorge Humane Society relies on donations from animal lovers like you to continue our lifesaving, no-kill mission. Every dollar helps save lives.
