Our mission is simple:

WCHS, Inc. is an independent non-profit animal shelter dedicated to:

  • finding committed, permanent homes for companion animals in our community
  • measurably reducing companion animal overpopulation
  • educating and promoting humane values

Our Core Values:

  • We will maintain a place of safety for animals in our community, providing quality veterinary care and spay/neuter services before placing them into permanent homes.
  • We will maintain a strong stance on humane euthanasia. It is not our population control, it is a humane last resort to end animals' suffering or to ensure public safety and welfare.
  • We will play an active role in the prevention of cruelty to animals by nourishing the relationship between companion animals and humans through education and community outreach.
  • We will operate a financially responsible organization, utilizing our resources efficiently to maximize care for the animals.
