The Spokane Humane Society is a non-profit shelter that has been helping animals in our community by providing care and shelter to lost, neglected and unwanted animals and by placing 2500-3500 animals in new homes each year. In 1897 a group of concerned citizens looked after the draft horses that used to carry loads up Spokane’s South Hill, forming the Spokane Humane Society. They now take in more than 5000 animals annually, most of which are cats and dogs that are in need of compassionate care. The organization also offers opportunities to foster a pet in need, volunteer opportunities and community outreach programs that provide animal care and education to school children in the Spokane area.
