Free Emergency Pet Boarding
Due to uncontained fires and strong winds in the greater Wenatchee Valley, pet owners who have been issued an Evacuation Level 3 can contact Wenatchee Valley Humane Society (WVHS) to inquire about free pet boarding. “Emergencies like these are when pet owners need the Humane Society the most,” says Dawn Davies, Executive Director. “We are a community. If our neighbors are worried about losing their homes, we can help reduce some of the stress by providing a safe shelter for their pets.”
Anyone interested in emergency boarding should call the shelter ahead of time to ensure there is space available, even if that means calling while driving to the shelter.
During office hours of 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, evacuees can reach the shelter’s front desk by dialing 509-662-9577. After hours, Animal Care and Control on call can assist those in need of boarding at 509-662-9577, option 1. Callers should leave a message if sent to voicemail and an officer will call back. If there isn’t a return call within 15 minutes, callers are encouraged to call the number again.
Wenatchee Valley Humane Society is located at 1474 S Wenatchee Avenue in Wenatchee.
