Our Mission Statement:

The Alternative Humane Society of Whatcom County is an all-volunteer, non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to improving the lives of dogs and cats and helping them find and stay in permanent loving homes. Our goals are:

  • To make Whatcom County a community where no healthy adoptable animals are euthanized
  • To prevent unwanted dog and cat births through spay and neuter assistance
  • To cultivate respect and awareness for the needs of animals through education
  • To advocate for the humane treatment of dogs and cats in all areas of life
