Okanagan Humane Society

The Okanagan Humane Society (OHS) has been serving the Okanagan since 1996 and saving the lives of local animals.

“This charity began more than 26 years ago on a mandate of spaying and neutering to help end the suffering of our local animals and be a part of the solution to pet overpopulation,” states Romany Runnalls, Volunteer President of the Board of Directors, OHS.

Today, OHS is in your community rescuing cats and kittens, both feral and homed, providing emergency medical care to lost and stray animals in crisis, and helping support those with income barriers to ensure their pets get the medical attention they deserve, spaying. Neutering dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens provides a safe haven for the compassionate board and reunites animals with their owners daily.

Since its inception, OHS has spayed or neutered more than 25,000 animals and counting. Last year, they helped more than 1500 animals through their rescue and medical assistance programs.

OHS supports a region that extends from Osoyoos to the Shuswap with a host of expert volunteer fosters to support up to 200 animals in care at any given time.
