It was 1967 that Bruce and Gwyneth Mitchell gave the old Mitchell home to the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society on south Wenatchee Avenue. Since that time, the society has become an essential part of taking care of our valley’s animal population.
But 2014 is due to become another milestone, as the association plans to replace the aging plant with new and expanded services. Executive director Dawn Davies tells me that they can’t wait any longer for upgraded facilities. They are looking after about 5,000 animals annually, and never turn away an animal. The association has a low-cost spay/neuter program.
