The attitude of this humane society is appalling, their staffing is surprisingly lack luster, that they don't even send out an officer to check on the animals they are supposed to save. They bully the public to avoid the hard work and will only go out to high profile cases to get your check book out with sympathy stories from the media. I am currently conducting an investigative report into this society, one recent case covers the death of 10 horses which was ignored up until it made the media, and three abandoned cats that weren't worth their time. The owner of the property had to deal with three abandoned animals from a tenant that abandoned the property for two months. They made the 81 year old landlady responsible for their safety or they would charge her with neglect rather than help both her and the poor animals out. animals that were not hers to begin with. Another occasion from an official source told me of an incident where they found an abandoned dog starved to death because the humane society refused to do their job.

The disturbing history I am getting will be published on various outlets soon, but I still await a comment from the society on the cases I am coming across. They appear not to have the staff, their attitude is currently disrespectful and, to quote the so called officer and manager they "don't take reports from the concerned public" (a comment given directly to me in discussion earlier today. More concerned with sympathy donations than they are with actually protecting animals from harm, the management which takes a decent salary should be replaced with a more competent workforce that is dedicated, professional and actually has some decent heart to carry out the duties we expect from them.

For the record, criminal charges for the above cases are currently being pressed. And the cats mentioned are in safe custody.

We called this shelter a month ago when a former tenant of my grandmother's abandoned three cats in a rental property. Officers arrived and determined the cats had food and water. How they did this is beyond me as they never set foot in the house. After they left, they called and told us if the cats starved, my grandmother would be charged with neglect. She didn't want the cats in her rental property and the tenant skipped out on the rent. We fed and watered the cats until today when we filed the formal eviction papers. The magistrate told us to surrender the cats to the humane society. I called them back and was told they would not pick up the cats because they "don't have to." I was also told again that if the cats starved, my elderly grandmother would be charged with neglect. How about tracking down the dead beat who left three cats to fend for themselves in that house? No, they'd rather strong arm an 81 year-old woman into feeding and housing three cats she does not want. We did what we thought was the right thing in calling them because the cats are abandoned. They chose to not do anything except scare an old lady half to death. My grandmother has been through enough with the eviction, she does not need to worry about feeding cats that don't belong to her. This shelter is constantly begging for money, what do they do with it? They certainly do not protect neglected and abused animals in Washington County with it. They will never get another donation from me or my family again. I have contacted the media about this matter as I feel it is extremely wrong to hold an elderly woman responsible for her tenant's pets. Again, go after the tenant who abandoned the cats, not the elderly woman who was trying to do the right thing. Washington County Humane Society, shame on you!

We were fortunate enough to receive one of our kittens from this humane society. The people were very friendly, and allowed us plenty of time with the kittens before picking the right one. He was too young to be neutered, so we took him home and were supposed to bring him back in several months. However, they lost track of our appointment, and this ended up becoming a very expensive procedure for us.
