Welcome to CANINES CARE: a team for dogs and their owners and all those who wish to support the great work of WHS.
WHS has a range of capabilities and a proven track record that sets it apart. WHS operates shelters, clinics and numerous programs in our community. As the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in the State, it has the capacity to perform emergency, large scale save and rescue missions of companion and wildlife animals from horrible conditions as demonstrated time and again.
The facts speak for themselves. In 2019, WHS
- Found homes for 13,032 companion animals.
- Reached 8,386 children through ongoing educational programs designed to teach compassion, respect and responsible care for animals.
- Performed 19,580 surgeries, conducted affordable vaccine clinics for hundreds of animals and operated the community's first high volume/low cost spay/neuter clinic.
- Cared for 5,129 wild animals at the WHS wildlife rehabilitation center.
- Ran programs to end animal abuse---a known precursor to child abuse.
- Cared for at risk pets of victims of domestic violence.
- Helped feed pets of families in need.
