The Southwest Washington Humane Society is located at 1100 NE 192nd Ave, Vancouver, and adopts out dogs, cats, puppies, kittens and rabbits to families in the area. The shelter has a 93.7 percent save rate and has no limits to how long an animal can stay in the shelter. The shelter also operates a thrift store, Retails, in Vancouver with profits going to the shelter. 

Below is a look at some of the dogs, cats and rabbits the shelter has up for adoption. While these are just a few options, the shelter has many more animals up for adoption both at its shelter and online at


“Hi, I’m Bandit! I am a 5 and a half year old Australian Cattle Dog. I love people. I love people so much I need to be the only pet in the household. I would enjoy a six foot fenced yard to get my exercise. I would like to meet any kiddos with whom I may be living.” Bandit the cattle dog is not on the general option floor, so the Humane Society asks potential adopters to talk with a counselor to set up an appointment with Bandit. Adoption fee $200.


“Hey there, I’m Jake, a 1 year old shepherd. My last family got a new dog that chased me out of the yard so I am looking for a more calm, adult only environment. I am also very agile and would like a fenced yard to romp about. I’m okay with other dogs, just bring them with you to meet me first.” Jake isn’t on the general adoption floor so the Humane Society asks potential adopters to set up an appointment with a counselor to meet Jake.

Adoption fee $250.


“Poblano here! I am a 11 month old Dutch Shepherd that would like to be in a dog-savvy home to continue training me.

Please have a yard to play in!” Anybody interested in adopting Poblano can send an email to Adoption fee $100
