Please Note: Adoption applications submitted for puppies under one year of age are put on file for review only. Due to the large volume of interest in puppies available for adoption we do not facilitate same day introductions. Adoption applications for puppies will be collected for a 1-2 week period before being reviewed to find the best possible match based on the individual needs of the puppies that are available. Adoption applications selected to meet with an available puppy will be contacted directly by Whatcom Humane Society adoption counselors and an introduction time will be set up. If you have not been contacted by staff after submitting an adoption application for a puppy, or if you have questions about what stage of the review process a certain puppy is in, please contact the customer service department by calling (360) 733-2080 ext 3001 or e-mailing email@example.com. All puppies are required to be signed up to attend positive, reward based obedience classes before the adoption can be finalized.
