Give a Wag! Gives to Medford Shelters

The largest shelter in Medford, the Southern Oregon Humane Society saves nearly all of the animals that come into its care with an astonishing 99% live release rate! SoHumane has a particular soft spot for senior dogs and dogs from city shelters that have been marked for euthanasia. SoHumane has made big news after rescuing and rehoming several dogs from the Southeast Asian dog meat trade using the partnership they have with a local Thai nonprofit, Soi Dog. Annually, they host Toast for Tails, an extravagant auction that raises a majority of SoHumane’s funds.

Jackson County Animal Services is the official shelter for the municipality of Medford, providing services in both rescue and animal control. They are the go-to contact for instances of animal abuse and neglect and place over 1,000 animals in new homes each year. This shelter has a robust trap and release program for feral animals, and a pet licensing program to provide the licenses required by Oregon law. Jackson County Animal Services works closely with local rescues like CATS and SoHumane to ensure that animals with a high euthanasia risk are given a second chance.

Being one of the only small, non-profit rescues around, Committed Alliance to Strays (CATS) is dedicated to resolving the stray cat problem in Jackson County. CATS comes from humble beginnings, starting in a barn and ending up on the land they have now. Founded by three women, this shelter makes a point to treat all medical conditions in addition to spaying and neutering all animals that come through its doors. Since its inception in 1990, CATS has saved over 10,000 cats from homelessness and shows no signs of stopping.
