Kitten Lady is Coming to Southern Oregon
Please join us for a fun-filled day of workshops on saving the most at-risk feline populations: neonatal kittens and community cats. Hosted by Shelter Friends and Rogue Valley Humane Society, this event features social media activist, Hannah Shaw, also known as the “Kitten Lady.” In addition to the workshops, a meet and greet will be held after the event for those with specially purchased tickets. We will also have non-profit organizations from around Oregon for you to meet with and learn how you can get involved at your local level.
Shelter Friends A Year of Saving Whiskers
The Josephine County Animal Shelter, with the support of Shelter Friends and the citizens of Josephine County, have turned our shelter into a model for others’ to follow. In the past five years, adoptions, transfers, and owner redemptions have increased and euthanasia has dropped. Josephine County no longer has to euthanize animals to make space for new animals entering the shelter! Once an animal is deemed adoptable, they stay at the shelter or in a foster home until they are adopted or transferred to one of our many partners. Here’s a link to our shelter statistics for the last two years:
One of the programs that have contributed to the reduction of euthanasia in dogs is the Heartworm Heroes Program. This joint effort between the shelter and Shelter Friends is now treating Heartworm positive dogs and getting them ready for adoption. You can read about this life-saving program and how you can help here: Heartworm Heroes Program

Most of our funds cover medical and foster expenses for shelter animals. Veterinary bills above what the shelter can pay, emergency veterinary care, dental services and all foster care expenses.
Whether recovering from a medical procedure, illness or just in need of time away from the shelter, our foster program offers respite for an animal in need of a ‘break’ from Shelter life.
Please join us in helping make a difference for those animals who need us the most. With your help, we can make our beautiful county a place where all animals can have the home they deserve.
