The West Columbia Gorge Humane Society offers an open house on the first Friday of every month from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. The dog and cat shelters at 2675 Index St., Washougal, will be open to the public and no appointment is needed. Attendees can visit with adoptable dogs and cats, meet humane society staff and volunteers and see the facilities. Animal surrenders and intakes still require an appointment; learn more and see adoptable animals online at wcghs.org. Call 360-835-3464 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
