Sign up today for Volunteer Orientation!

Pet of the Week
Name: Wilma (One-Eyed Wilma)
Breed(s): Hound mixed with maybe Beagle?
Age: About 3 yrs
Weight: About 40 lbs
Reason for being at shelter: Transferred in from Florida
General info: Wilma is such a sweetheart! She can be shy and overwhelmed by a lot of action, but she longs to warm up to people and just be loved on. Wilma is great with other dogs and loves to play with her “sister hound” Lauren (see photo)! We are not sure how Wilma lost her eye, and she still seems to be getting used to just having half of her vision. However, it does not affect her daily activities, and her ability to be a hound! Wilma would do best with an owner that understands hounds, and has a very well fenced yard to keep her from “hounding” too much and getting lost… Wilma recently traveled over 3000 miles from a high-kill shelter in Florida to find a new home in the Pacific Northwest, she is ready to find her forever loving home!!!
Adoption fee (includes spay/neuter, microchip, rabies vaccine, and a health check from a vet): $120
At the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society, we are committed to caring for and finding permanent homes for the homeless animals of Clallam County. As an open admission shelter, we take in any animal that is brought to us. We do not turn animals away. Each year approximately 2,000 animals are brought into the shelter. We rely on the generosity of our community to help care for our residents. Thank you to everyone who makes a donation or adopts an animal into your family.
