Happy and Merry Christmas!

We are looking forward to a new year with excitement.   2012 will be a good year in the Walla Walla Valley and for home ownership.    However, with the anticipation of 2012, we cannot forget to say thank you to all of the families who allowed us to assist them in their Real Estate needs, purchasing, selling, or renting.   Without all of you we could not exist; In my forty years working with three generations of families in our valley and helping them find homes, I could never have enjoyed the life I have enjoyed with my wife and children.

Thank you so much.

 May God’s Blessings be with you this special holiday season.

Crisp but not too cold, clear skies and lots of floats for the annual Christmas Parade of Lights this past Saturday night.   We had the largest turnout for our seating area in front of our office ever.    There was a record amount of cookies, coffee and hot chocolate given out to the many families walking up and down Main Street.  What fun to see the children running out to greet the floats and gather the candy being tossed to them.


 We are still selling homes.   Great rates and good inventory.  Check out our website and find one of our fantastic Brokers to assist you.


Merry Christmas

Home for the Holidays, planned for December 17, 2011, is going to be one of the most exciting days of the year for the staff and animals at your Blue Mountain Humane Society.  This is the fifth year we have held a special pet adoption event for the holidays with discounted adoptions offered on every single pet at the shelter.  The event will run from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, December 17, 2011 at the shelter located at 7 E. George Street in Walla Walla.  All cats and kittens will be just $20 and all dogs and puppies will be just $50.  Every single pet is altered, microchipped, current on vaccinations, and includes a certificate for a free wellness exam at any local vet clinic.

 The mission of the Blue Mountain Humane Society is to prevent cruelty and promote kindness to companion animals in our community.

Come see us – your new best friend is waiting!

Sara R. Archer, Executive Director, Blue Mountain Humane Society         

“Being a part of the Blue Mountain Humane Society has been an extremely rewarding experience for me. We have lots of wonderful people that not only work daily at the society, but also lots of people who work behind the scenes to make the Humane Society a viable operation. With our annual fundraiser known as the Furr Ball we are able to continue to provide a place where companion animals are safe and well cared for until they find their “forever home”.  There are many programs that we have to make life easier for not only the staff but the animals. Many citizens volunteer their time to walk the dogs or play with the kitties on a daily basis. A volunteer recently built the outdoor cat enclosure so that the cats have a tree to sit in and a great place to see the world while they wait to be adopted. All of this reduces stress and illness for the animals and helps morale immensely. We also work closely with the Cat Management Coalition in Walla Walla to trap, spay/neuter, and return feral cats to their native areas thus reducing cat overpopulation.  If you are interested in helping in any way please visit our website at bluemountainhumane.org or give us a call at 509-525-2452 and we will be happy to share the opportunities available for you. On our website is a wish list of items that are always greatly needed and in short supply so please feel free to check it out!

Tish Watts, BMHS Board of Directors President

“The Home for the Holidays program is a great opportunity to help an animal find a stable home.  Take advantage of this opportunity and help the Blue Mountain Humane Society have another successful year!”
