Last year, we provided care for about 2,000 animals in our shelter, responded to more than 7,000 citizen calls, answered over 50,000 phone calls, and did community outreach at schools, fairs and events.
Washington County is the second largest county in Oregon with a population of more than 571,000 people. We provide services for an estimated 120,000 dogs and 130,000 cats and their owners in an area that encompasses 727 square miles.
