Social media: WHS clarifies adoption policy

May 3rd, 2016 | Category: News

BELLINGHAM – Whatcom Humane Society’s Executive Director Laura Clark said there is no truth to recent posts by local residents on social media stating the WHS has a policy excluding members of 4H or FFA from adopting an animal. Following is Clark’s statement to Grow Northwest: “The Whatcom Humane Society does not have any policy that would exclude adoptions by members or family members of 4H or FFA groups. The Whatcom Humane Society is very appreciative of the hard work and education both organizations provide to our community. The Whatcom Humane Society does strive to place animals into permanent, responsible and loving homes where each animal will be treated like a valued family companion. In regards to farm/livestock-type animals (chickens, goats, sheep, pigs, cows, etc.) we do our best to place these animals into homes where they will not be used for breeding or used for food-production. This policy can at times, cause philosophical differences of opinion with some members of our community.”
