Meet Snowflake! A long haired, white male cat about 4 yrs. Old. He is very friendly and loves to be on your lap if you let him. He tends to hide in the morning and he is not affraid to be alone. He is in the house when the dogs are inside, usually just goes behind the couch. He was raised with 3 other rescue cats, two of which have already been placed. He is playful after he gets to know you. Because this poor kitty was abused (two cigarette burn marks on his side which have been treated and healing) he still is a little leary of strangers. He is up to date on his vaccinations and deworming and uses the liter box faithfully. If you are looking for a mild mannered, timid inside cat, please consider Snowflake.
WE’RE CROWD SOURCING A BOOK as a fundraiser and we want you to participate!
The accomplished writer and photographer Ellen Bishop and the WCHS board members are joining together to create a book featuring the amazing animals of Wallowa County. It will be all about local animals – pets, service animals, ranch dogs, etc. – with pics and their special stories.
Does your animal have an amazing story to share? There’s still time to submit your story. Click the link to download and print the Book Application and tell us all about it!

We have a monthly volunteer orientation class for all volunteers and those wanting to become. Volunteer packets with important info will be given to each person in the class. Carol Vencill, WCHS president, will be conducting the volunteer orientation.
Volunteer Orientation classes will begin again in January. In the meantime, to learn more, you can view and download a summary of our standard Volunteer Orientation info as a PDF document.
Help us trap feral cats and keep the kitty population down! We need a volunteer or two to help trap and transport feral cats, so they can be spayed. This is the best way to prevent unwanted kittens from ending up in shelters, or worse.
Do you have a spare Havaheart or similar humane trap that you can donate? All our traps are in use, and there are still plenty of feral cats out there. You can drop off your traps at the WCHS Info Center, 104 N. River Street in Enterprise. We’re open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Remember: A lost pet wearing a collar with a name and phone number has a much better chance of being returned to its home. Microchipping is a safe procedure. Pets react to insertion of a microchip about the same as they would to a typical vaccination. Microchipping will help to identify your pet no matter where it is found. Please see your veterinarian about microchipping your cat or dog.
Lots of kittens means we need to work hard at finding forever homes for the animals in foster care, in addition to running the new Info Center.
Please take a look at our Wish List and see if there’s something you can donate to keep Wallowa County Humane Society going strong. Just drop off any donated item at our Info Center at 104 N. River Street in Enterprise. We’re open Thursday, Friday and Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
It has been an incredible opportunity to work with the community since we’ve been so visible. Together we have stepped up the Trap/Neuter/Release program since it began over 30 years ago. More lost “owners” have been reunited with their pets, and more people have come forward to volunteer, just to name a few wonderful things that have come our way since the Info Center opened in October 2014. We are continuing our efforts to establish a sanctuary in the future.
The Center is open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., except holidays. Trudy Meyers, our volunteer coordinator, has set up a schedule which is posted at the Center. All volunteers are asked to pick dates and times to work at the Center. Each volunteer will be partnered with an experienced volunteer to start. Without volunteers, there is no Wallowa County Humane Society. The animals and the people of Wallowa County will be helped by our efforts.
Call Carol, 541-263-0336, or Trudy, 541-432-9755, to vounteer. We invite you to stop by and visit the Center to see the changes and progress we’re making as we go forward.
The WCHS Information Center is located at 104 N. River Street in Enterprise.
