Spay – Neuter Saves Lives. The Okanagan Humane Society’s mantra, mission and mandate.
The Okanagan Humane Society (OHS) is a Registered Canadian Charity #1083005-54 formed in 1996 by volunteers committed to preventing animal overpopulation and unwanted litters of animals. OHS carries out its mission by assisting low income families with access to low cost spay/neuter for their pets; caring for and rehoming homeless animals; and promoting the importance of responsible pet care through public awareness campaigns and education. OHS operates throughout the Okanagan Valley relying on donations and community grants to fund its work

The Volunteers and Members of the Okanagan Humane Society want to express their thanks to the CanFel Foundation of Guelph, Ontario for their generous support of our work to stop cat overpopulation here in the Okanagan.
Central Okanagan Foundation has also stepped forward with a generous 3 year commitment of funds to help with the OHS Community Cat TNR Program. “The Central Okanagan Foundation is a community foundation providing an ongoing contribution to the quality of life in our community through building endowments, grant making and community leadership. We bring donors and charities together to provide for the needs of the community today, tomorrow and forever.”
We are also grateful for the funding received under the BC SPCA Community Animal Spay/Neuter Grant. The support of these 3 organizations also means more animals are being saved every year.
