price adjustment, March 1, 2023

To our community,

We are announcing a change in our pricing for adoptions and veterinary clinical services at Spokane Humane Society. After careful review of how our operational expenses have increased due to inflation, and with the Washington State wage increase, we have decided it is necessary to adjust our pricing to ensure we can continue to provide the highest quality of care to our animals and clients.

Effective March 1, 2023, there will be a slight increase in our adoption fees and services. We understand this change may cause some inconvenience, but want to assure you that it is necessary to maintain our commitment to quality care as well as the care and security of our employees.

We will honor current clinical pricing for any already-scheduled appointments. Appointments set beyond March 1 will reflect new pricing. Adoption pricing is effective for any adoptions on March 1 and beyond.

Our team remains dedicated to our work and will continue to provide the best possible attention to all animals that come into our care. We value your support and loyalty to our organization, and we appreciate your understanding of this change.
