We are committed to improving animal welfare by eliminating cruelty and pet overpopulation through education, law enforcement, providing shelter, promoting lifetime adoptions and spay/neuter programs.
We keep an updated list of our adoptable best friends on Pet Finder, and also our Facebook page.
If you licensed your dog this year you should receive a renewal form in the mail in November. If you do not receive one it is still your responsibility to get your dog licensed. The Humane Society of Cowlitz County is in charge of collecting license fees for Longview, Kelso, Castle Rock, and Woodland. All these cities have now switched to licensing by Jan. 1. You must have your dogs licensed by that date, or you will be charged a late fee. The late fee is $15 per dog, with the exception of Woodland’s $10 per dog, so it is best to license on time.
Current Rabies Vaccinations are required to get your license too, so check with your vet please and see if they’re are up to date. Your vet can fax us the information, you can bring it in when you purchase your new license, or you could send a copy in the mail for our records.
If you have had an animal pass away within the year we would also appreciate knowing that so we can remove it from the system.
