Furhaven Gives Back - Supporting Whatcom Humane Society
We love to support great organizations like the Whatcom Humane Society, who do so much to care for animals in need. Furhaven was recently able to make a donation of pet beds to help provide more comfortable sleeping and give adopters a starter bed. Our friend Kelsey from WHS was delighted:
"Thank you so much again for donating and taking the time to coordinate with the rescues in our community. The sleep-and-peeks are so cute and perfect to give to adopters!
I really can't express our appreciation enough for the donation of the beds, pads, and cat balls. These will be so useful and we have enough items to donate to Lummi!
The Whatcom Humane Society’s (WHS) mission is to advocate for animals, educate the community to promote humane treatment and respect for animals, and provide for abandoned, injured, abused or neglected animals. No animal is turned away regardless of the animal’s breed, age, temperament, physical or medical condition. WHS advocates for the right of all animals to be treated with kindness, respect, and compassion. In 2018, approximately WHS sheltered and provided medical attention for approximately 5,000 domestic and native wild animals.
In addition to sheltering services, WHS operates 24-hour Animal Control and Rescue, an in-house veterinary clinic, animal adoptions, and a Safe Pet program for temporary care of animals belonging to victims of domestic violence. WHS also offers programs for pets of low-income families in Whatcom County, including a Spay and Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) and a pet food bank.
