Humane Society Pet of the Week: Angelica
Each week, Lacamas Magazine will feature a Pet of the Week, from the Southwest Washington Humane Society.
Hello friends! My name is Angelica and I am a sweet and gentle soul looking for a family to love. I would do best in a more quiet environment without kids under the age of ten. I would like to meet any dogs or kids with whom I may be living. Adopt me today!

The adoption fee for dogs in Angelica’s age range (6 months to 6 years) is $100-$200. The costs of adoptions vary, depending on the dog’s age, and other issues.
All adoptions include: Spay or neuter surgery, microchip ID and national registration, select vaccinations, free veterinary exam with a local participating veterinarian, animal training information, and 30 days of free pet insurance.
Denise Barr, the Director of Marketing at the Southwest Humane Society, says the Pacific Northwest is a good area for pet adoptions.
“We have a very high adoption rate here,” she said. “4,400 pets were adopted last year.”
She also said there’s a good process for people who need to separate from their pets, and that people should feel their pet will find a good home.
“Sometimes people move and can’t take their pets with them,” she said. “Or maybe there’s a problem in the home that it’s best for the animal to find a new home. We do a good job here at placing pets.”
To adopt an animal, you must be at least 18 years of age. Some animals may have specific adoption requirements so be sure to check with an Adoption Counselor for details.
