About Humane Society of The Ochocos
Founded in 1995 as the inspiration and vision of former Prineville residents Gladys Logsdon and Donna Whitcomb, The Humane Society of the Ochocos has come a long way. The shelter was constructed in 1996 as a temporary facility when the local population was just 17,000…it is now over 25,000, representing a 47% increase! The needs of the County have outgrown the current shelter’s capacity. In 2006, HSO paved the way and became the first animal shelter in Central Oregon to adopt the no-kill philosophy. Their mission is to create a community responsible for animals, to give shelter to stray and abandoned animals, and to find them loving, permanent homes. Further, they are dedicated to improving the welfare of all companion animals in Crook County by promoting spay/neutering and other expressions of responsible pet ownership.
