Helping Out Pets Everyday, the Rogue Valley Humane Society Way


Adoptions, placing healthy pets in happy homes, this is the heart of the RVHS Mission.  In 2021 we placed 225 dogs and cats into their forever homes.

RVHS reunited 12 dogs and cats with their families in 2021.

To help end pet overpopulation and stop the problem of homeless animals, we began our community spay-neuter assistance programs in 2010.  From that time through the end of 2021, we have helped 8,401 animals be altered.

In 2021, 127 dogs and cats – pets of Josephine County residents, have been altered through our voucher programs. We also spay and neuter all pets in our care prior to adoption. In 2021, the RVHS Spay & Neuter Clinic altered 270 pets pre-adoption. Additionally, we expanded our spay and neuters surgeries to include local rescue groups and this year we performed 438 surgeries for our local groups! We also altered a total of 231 community cats to help end the overpopulation of cat colonies in Josephine County.

We believe that no pet should go hungry. Our food pantry and Ani-meals programs are here to help a family over a rough spot, to make sure that a pet’s food bowl doesn’t stay empty. Our food pantry fed over of 2,142 pets in 2021. Rogue Valley Humane Society’s Ani-Meals program assisted and delivered pet food to approximately 24 pets owned by home bound individuals each month in 2021. Food donations from the community are always welcome.

Our shelter and Thrift Store volunteers are on the job, every day, working alongside our staff.  Our committed volunteers contributed over 3,087 hours in 2021!

The RVHS Senior Outreach & Visitation program performs wellness-checks to help our older community members keep and take care of their beloved pets.

Kids naturally love animals and we give them new insights and skills through our summer Critter Camp and humane education programs.

Our volunteers are on hand at the Grants Pass Growers’ Market from March through November.  The booth features photos of our available pets, information about RVHS and always, good conversation about our four-legged companions.
