The Humane Society of the Ochocos runs several programs to assist our community and its animals. For any questions or inquiries, please don’t hesitate to call us at (541) 447-7178 or stop by and chat!

TNR – Trap, Neuter, Release

The Humane Society has a program to trap, neuter, and release stray cats to help keep the feral population down. If you are a resident in Crook County and have any feral cats, you can make a appointment at any vet in Crook County for TNR and they will neuter or spay the cat for no cost. HSO has traps you can borrow with a deposit to ensure they are returned. The cats would then be picked up from vet and released back to the property that they originally came from.

Additional resources for discounted spay/neuter/vaccines:

Barn Cats

Cats that make their way through the TNR program might also make a great candidate for a mouser on your property.  Call us and leave your name if you have or are interested in a barn cat and we’ll try to make a match! 541-447-7178

Pit Bull Program

This is a free spay or neutering, micro chip, and rabies vaccine to all pit bull and pit bull mix dogs as long as you are a resident in Crook County. You would need to come to the shelter with the animal or a picture of the dog and we will give you a voucher for them to take to any vet here in town.
