Our shelter has dogs who would make great kid companions, dogs who love visiting with kids but don’t want to live with them full-time, and dogs who are uncomfortable or even afraid of children. Tell us more about your lifestyle and plans so we can consider the dog’s kid-capability when picking out your possible pooches
Some dogs require positive, reward-based classes depending on their age, breed, or behavior.
Please sign and date this form in person when you adopt an animal from Whatcom Humane Society.
