Whatcom Humane Society


It is important to know that the Whatcom Humane Society (WHS) is an open-admission humane society, this means that we will accept ANY animal that comes into us. Because of this, our facility accepts an average of over 3,700 domestic animals each year, not including many farm animals that are also brought into our facilities. Sadly, there are not enough homes for all of these animals. Whatcom County, and our country as a whole, are still suffering a tragic pet overpopulation problem, with an average 1.5 million animals being euthanized annually nationwide because new homes are not available. At WHS our goal is to find a loving family for every animal but unfortunately there are simply more animals than there are people who want to adopt them.


These tips are intended to help reunite lost pets with their families:
  • Visit Petco lovelost to report the found the pet.
  • Check with residents in the area the pet was found. Go door-to-door.
  • Scan for microchip. Bring the found pet to Whatcom Humane Society or a local vet.
  • Alert the microchip company that you have found a pet and leave your contact info.
  • File a found report with the Whatcom Humane Society.
  • Place found ads on Craigslist under “Lost+Found”,“Pets” or “Lost Pets of Whatcom County.”
  • Create found pet flyers – post near the location the pet was found and high traffic areas.
  • We urge anyone that comes across an unknown animal to use caution, if you do not feel safe, please contact your local animal control or police department immediately.

Thank you for helping reunite a family!


By law we are required to hold all impounded, stray animals at our shelter for a 72 hour (3-day) or a 120 hour (5-day) holding period in order to give the owner an opportunity to find them. We choose to hold all stray animals for the longer 120 hour (5-day) holding period, and this period does not include their day of arrival, Tuesdays or holidays when the shelter is closed. At the end of the stay holding period, our staff will examine and evaluate the animal to determine whether he/she can be placed into our adoption program. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to make him/her available for adoption as much will depend on his/her health, temperament/behavior, and availability of space in our adoption kennels. Even if he/she is made available for adoption, we cannot guarantee that someone will choose to adopt him/her, however there are no time-limits on the animals that are made available for adoption so long as the animals is happy, healthy, and there is space available to house them.


The following is a list of conditions under which an animal may not be placed for adoption:
  • They are under 8 weeks of age.
  • Their advanced age is causing extreme medical or physical problems or distress.
  • They are in poor general health or physical condition.
  • Their temperament or behavior is such that they are not safe around humans or other animals.
  • They are showing extreme signs of stress due to being placed in a kennel environment.
  • They show signs of contagious/communicable disease that could infect other animals.
  • There is no space available in the adoption kennels.

Depending on the specifics of the animal’s condition and availability of space, some animals may be placed in foster care until they are old enough to be made available for adoption, held for treatment/observation before being evaluated for adoption, or transferred to other facilities for potential adoption placement.


At WHS every effort is made to find loving homes for the animals in our adoption program. Once an animal is placed into our adoption program, there is no time limit on the animal. Animals may remain in our adoption program for a day, week, month, or longer. However, animals available for adoption may be euthanized if there is a decline in their health, temperament, or physical condition or if space becomes limited and we need to make room for new incoming animals and there are no placement options with other rescue groups or facilities.

If you wish to inquire about this animal, you may do so by calling the shelter at (360) 733-2080 ext. 0. 


If you are interest in adopting this animal, we ask that you come to the shelter before the end of the stray holding period and complete an adoption application. Adoption policies apply, ask staff for details.

Take Good Boy Joker home!

Take Good Boy Joker home!

Guess who is STILL here? Joker has been with us 5 months now. He’s 7 years old, but you wouldn’t believe it - he acts like he’s about two - all made of frolic and delight. He’s healthy, he has a soft, sleek coat for pets, he has a happy doggy grin, a snuffly nose, a pink tongue and perky ears that flop over at the tip. He is only 34 pounds - so if you’re looking for a not-too-big dog, he fits the bill.

Lady wants more than anything in all the world to run with you. Sure, she can catch a tennis ball or sit for a treat, she likes a good hug and a drink from the kiddie pool… but all of that is nothing compared to the idea that you might run with her.

Check out Handsome Lobo!

One of our favorite things about Lobo is that when he’s listening intently with his ears all perked up, he looks kinda like a cute little bat! Na-na-na-na-na-na BAT-DOG! He’s prepared to help you in protecting Gotham City! Or, you know, looking particularly on-theme when you take him for a walk on Walla Walla’s Adam West day.

Get to know Luna

Luna’s favorite thing in the whole wide world is playing in the pool. Well, for right now at least – and who can blame her? It’s been so hot in Walla Walla – so she’s been getting in early morning play sessions to splash around. She likes to snuffle her nose into the water and blow bubbles. She likes to crawl around in circles then stand up and shake the water out of her fur. While all we’ve got here is a kiddie pool, we have our suspicions that Luna would LOVE the beach.

Happy-Go-Lucky Otto likes to play. If he gets the impression you’re not catching on, he’ll toss a Frisbee in the air himself, and catch it in his mouth. See? It’s so much fun! Don’t you want to try?

Get to know Jack

The first thing you should know about Jack is that he is a Good Boy. Basically, every time you hear Jack’s name mentioned around here, you immediately hear someone else pipe up “Jack? He’s such a good boy.” In fact, he inspired this week of posts – a volunteer said “How is Jack still here?! We need to do something about that!”

adopt chester – 

This sweet 7-year-old boy has been at the shelter since January & would love to finally find his human. This guy has quite the character & is sure to make you smile. Just pet his soft fur & watch his happy eyes close tight as if everything is right in the world just from a little love.

We will continue our efforts to move as many pets as we can into forever homes or foster homes. We need your help to continue saving animals in need. Here's how you can help:

Same-day adoptions needed: We are excited to announce that our lobby and adoptable animal areas are open to the public! Before you visit the shelter, please check out our adoption guidelines and frequently asked questions which can be found on our adoption page. 

Fosters needed: The shelter needs fosters for all types of pets but homes without other pets or children are most needed. Foster applications can be found on our foster page. 

On behalf of our shelter staff, volunteers, and most importantly, the pets, we thank you for your continued support during these unprecedented times.


We need your help, and every little bit makes a huge difference to the animals in need. Become a friend!

SECRETLY Filming DOG \u0026 CAT Shelter (VERY EMOTIONAL) The Omar Gosh Vlogs

Her naked, long, snow-white slender legs attracted to me like a magnet, and despite the fact that I was hungry like a wolf. I decided to make love to her now. She grunted in displeasure in response to my attempts to persuade her to have sex, saying that I was interfering with her and now was.

Not up to me. She made me very angry, but at the same time turned me on with her words, so I bent her with cancer, and despite her attempts to escape, pulled my hot cock out of my pants, and The elevator climbed painfully upstairs.
