Olympic Mountain Pet Pals is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to better lives for companion animals in Jefferson County, WA.
Low Income Spay and Neuter Assistance
We actively promote spay and neuter programs to reduce overpopulation that leads to homelessness in dogs and cats.
Spay & Neuter Program supports affordable spay and neuter surgeries for pets in low-income households.
Community Cats Program has promoted the TNR (trap/neuter/return) method to humanely control populations of cats who have reverted to a “wild” state.
Ginger’s Fund has enabled local vets to provide emergency medical assistance for animals when families can’t afford it.
Therapy Dog Programs
Pet Pals sponsors an active and growing therapy dog program to serve members of the community.
Pets to People is our outreach program to older citizens. Volunteers bring dogs to visit residents of extended care and assisted living facilities.
