The Humane Society for Southwest Washington is the only open admission animal sheltering facility in Southwest Washington – caring for more than 8,000 homeless and abused animals every year. More than 540 volunteers donate 32,000+ hours annually. HSSW does not euthanize healthy, adoptable animals and does not place a time-limit on the animals in our care. They remain residents of the shelter until they are adopted or transferred to another shelter or rescue organization that continues to work to find that animal a permanent home. The HSSW is a member of ASAP (Animal Shelter Alliance of Portland), a group of public and private shelters in the greater Vancouver/Portland area committed to ending the euthanasia of social, healthy and treatable cats and dogs in our local shelters, by collaborating on spay/neuter programs, educational and outreach efforts, and the promotion of humane alternatives for feral cats. Since 1897, the Humane Society for Southwest Washington has enriched the lives of people, pets and our community through adoption and outreach, and serves as a resource for companion animal services and education.
