Mission Statement


We are an open access shelter whose mission is to protect the welfare of the animals we come in contact with, and to promote the humane treatment and well being of these animals. We serve the animals, citizens and communities of Washington County. We do this by: 1. Providing shelter and medical care for stray, abandoned or surrendered animals in our community: 2. Responding with personal commitment, humane sensitivity, compassion, and technical skill to the needs of these animals. 3. Actively promoting suitable adoptions of the animals. 4. Encouraging the spaying and neutering of dogs and cats through the Washington County SPCA programs: GCSNAP and Alley Cat Alliance, to ensure the animal overpopulation problem be kept to a minimum; and 5. Helping to prevent cruelty to animals by promoting education in the community.

Description


Spurred by a local case of egregious cruelty, the Washington County Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (WCSPCA) was incorporated in 1965. An animal shelter was built and the new organization undertook projects to educate the public on companion animal issues. In 1974 the WCSPCA contracted to care for animals impounded by the City of Bartlesville. In so doing, the number of animals served increased substantially. Currently we are comprised of two operations: The City of Bartlesville Impound facility and the WCSPCA Adoption facility. The impound facility is subsidized by the City of Bartlesville. The Adoption facility and all the community service programs associated with our organization (GCSNAP, Alley Cat, etc) are funded solely by grants and public donations. We are neither a part of, nor supported by, any State or Federal contributions.
