Home at Last is a private, non-profit humane society located in The Dalles, Oregon in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. Started in 2000 by caring individuals who were concerned that too many dogs and cats were being euthanized in our community simply because they were homeless, Home at Last was born with nothing more than a firm belief that there was a better way to treat the needy pets in our community and a firm commitment to make these changes happen.
Fast forward to 2015 and you will find us in our current location (the building was previously the Wasco County Animal Shelter) caring for hundreds of animals each year. We take in all stray animals brought to us by The Dalles Police, Wasco Co. Police, Sherman Co. Police, and many more, and accept as many owner released pets as possible, space permitting. All of our animals receive vaccinations, are spayed or neutered if needed, receive any
needed medical treatment and are microchipped before they are adopted. They also receive the love and attention they need from our caring staff, and volunteers, daily.
The Mission: Our commitment is to end pet overpopulation in the Mid-Columbia region through:
¨ Providing healthy, safe and loving homes for dogs and cats
¨ Promoting positive relationships between people and their pets through outreach and education.
No companion animal will be killed simply because it is homeless.
Home at Last envisions a community with no homeless pets. HAL will continue to grow and meet pet population needs using a self-sustaining business model. We will treat all animals with compassion and respect, create accessible regional services, and engage, promote, and educate the public while ensuring no companion animal is killed simply because it is homeless.
