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. 

Featured Pets

Luna

Make Luna the happiest dog in the whole galaxy and adopt her! She will repay you by forever loving you to the moon and back! Be prepared to fall in love while stargazing into this beauties eyes. This radiant girl has done great playing with other dogs but would like to meet any other dogs in your home to make sure it is a good fit. She does have a very energetic play style so small or older dogs may not be the best fit. Cats are a little too exciting for her so she will need a home without them. Luna does well with children but since she is so large and energetic, a home with older sturdy children would be best.

Carol Danvers

Carol (Award winning mom to the Marvel Crew), her foster mom describes her as the most sweet-natured cat she has ever met and if she did not already have three cats she would adopt her. Mrs. Vers would do best in a quieter home with a feline friend.
