Spay – Neuter Saves Lives and Ends Suffering
The Okanagan Humane Society (OHS) is a Registered Canadian Charity #8888 17269 RR 0001 formed in 1996 by volunteers committed to solving pet overpopulation. OHS carries out its Mission by:
- assisting low income families with access to low cost spay/neuter and sometimes medical care for their pets;
- rescuing, treating and rehoming stray, feral or abandoned animals;
- promoting responsible pet care through public awareness and education.
OHS is volunteer run, and foster home based, relying only on donations and grants. We could not function without our supporters, volunteers and the care and compassion of our veterinary partners.
Pet Assistance Program*: Low income families or individuals can apply for assistance here:
