Learn More About Our 50th Anniversary
Thanks to your support, your local, independent humane society reaches an important milestone this year. Willamette Humane Society turns 50 in November. From our humble beginnings in 1965, to a new sheltering facility in 1995, to our Spay & Neuter Clinic in 2010, to the changing ways we’ll provide compassionate service to pets and people in the future, we have YOU to thank. We hope you’ll join us!


Throughout the year, Willamette Humane Society will increase adoptions through a variety of promotions and off-site adoptions, and increase our capacity during kitten season by building the foster program. You can save lives by adopting, fostering, or promoting adoption on social media!

Our 50th Anniversary features special events throughout the year, including Humanefest on July 18th, Bowser’s Boo Bash, our annual costume party dinner and auction, and the Golden Anniversary Party on Saturday, November 7th at Willamette Humane Society from 12 pm to 6 pm. We invite you to join us!

Willamette Humane Society will have a stronger presence in the community, reaching out to past adopters and supporters, promoting awareness for adoption and animal welfare. You can engage with us through social media, visit our Facebook page, Twitter account, and Instagram feed to learn more!


We are always looking for ways to enhance the experience of those using our services. Look forward to improvements at the shelter for those adopting or using our services!


You brought your humane society through the first fifty years with flying colors. Now it’s time to prepare for the needs of the next fifty years. You can help by joining the golden hearts monthly giving club, increasing your monthly donation, contacting your employer about matching gifts, leaving a legacy for the animals in your will, or making a gift to the endowment fund. We hope that in another 50 years, you or your children will be at the 100th anniversary to tell about how you made a difference!
