Hurricane Harvey Animals

Hurricane Harvey Animals
We have a fund set up with the Orcas Island Community Foundation to help cover the costs of transportation and veterinary care for the dogs coming to Orcas from the Hurricane Harvey disaster.  The relief effort will be ongoing for weeks to come and Orcas APS will continue to help as long as we can and until the area is stabilized.  Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated.  We’ll be posting photos of our first group of dogs soon.  Both dogs and cats will be taken in as our space permits.

It is kitten season!

It is kitten season!

Spring is definitely here with the arrival of lots of kittens. They are not all in our kitten room yet but they will be there as soon as their moms decide they are ready. 

  • Mom cat Daisy has one kitten, Tazzy, and they have the run of the lobby and office when we’re open.
  • Mom cat Willow has 3 tabby kittens with white paws born on April 24th.  Their eyes are just starting to open.
  • Our tuxedo mom cat has 4 kittens that are already mobile and we’ll have a better idea of their age when they see Dr. Joe
  • Our black mom cat came with 3 newborn kittens. They may only be about a week old.

Happy Birthday Toby!

Happy Birthday Toby!

Toby the island cat is turning 21, that’s 100 in people years! We decided to celebrate Toby and all senior animals by having a Facebook event. Do you have a pet who has lived an extra special life? Click here to visit the event page and share photos and stories about your pets, and hear all about the wonderful Toby. 

Toby is lucky to have found his forever home but there are many senior cats at the shelter looking for theirs. If you want to help a senior cat live their golden years in the comfort of your home come visit us! Or you can help sponsor a senior cat at the shelter, learn more here
