The Poteau Valley Humane Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to relieving the pain and suffering of animals through educational efforts as well as direct intervention. It is a community problem and we need the community's help to make a difference in the lives of animals and the people who love and care for them. Poteau Valley Humane Society is supported entirely by volunteers and donations by people just like you. Your tax-deductible donation will help us save more animals, and do more for the people of our community.

How To Report Suspected Abuse

Report Abuse or Neglect to your local law enforcement and to PVHS. You can remain anonymous.

To Locate Missing/Stolen Pets

Report any missing pets to the Humane Society (918-649-0986) and to Poteau City Pound (918-647-8620) and post flyers and rewards. Local newspapers will often run free ads for a few days to help locate missing animals.

Make neighbors aware of pet theft in your neighborhood. Ban together with a neighborhood watch to prevent pet theft.

Pet Training Do's and Don'ts

Do keep your pet indoors or in a secured fenced area, especially when you are not home.
Do decide on your house rules before bringing your new pet home and be consistent with enforcing those rules.
Do use your pet's name with compliments and praise so he will associate his name with positives.
Do provide your animal with a collar and ID tag in case your pet is lost or stolen. Microchip if you can afford to do so.
Don't use your pet's name with a negative, i.e., "Max, NO."
Just say, "NO," or he will associate his name with a negative. Use his name with positives such as praise.
Do not feed the dog from the counter or table.
Don't leave garbage out where your new pet can get into trouble
Don't chain your dog for an extended period of time.
Don't leave your pet unattended in a parked car. Summer temperatures can heat the car to 120 degrees within 10 minutes. And can be fatal for your pet. Use caution during the other seasons as the inside of your car still can heat up and retain that heat.
Don't leave small children unattended with any dog.
Don't allow children to tease a dog with toys.
Don't allow children to rough house or play tug games with a puppy or adult dog.
Don't use "Free To Good Home" in ads to place a pet. Many bad things have happened to animals that were placed in that way.
Don't place a pet in a new home without carefully screening the new owners.
To research behavioral or potty training tips go to,, and many others for helpful tips of any kind concerning care of your companion animals.
Always read dog food package labels for ingredients. Avoid dry foods which list Soy or Corn as the first ingredients. Soy and Corn are just fillers and usually have no nutritional value and lead to digestive problems.
