WHS 50th Anniversary

50 years and counting—that’s right, Watauga Humane Society is fifty years old!

From its roots in 1969, WHS has since established itself as a premiere open admission shelter, handling approximately 2,000 animals annually and placing over 95% of the animals it receives. In those 50 years, WHS has built and maintained a state-of-the-art facility, operated a thriving dog park, established a very busy Bare Bones thrift store, expanded its spay/neuter effort, and increased educational outreach. We think that the founders of WHS would be proud of our achievements.
