“This is a game-changer.” That’s how Stacey Graham, Executive Director at the Humane Society for Southwest Washington described the next grant in the BanfieldFoundation’s “12 Days of Giving.” The donation will go toward an x-ray machine for their shelter’s veterinary clinic, enabling approximately 520 pets per year to receive advanced care.
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.
