        The Blue Mountain Humane Association is a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible non-profit humane organization with the primary mission of operating the Animal Rescue & Adoption Center in La Grande, Oregon as a High Save facility, providing a safe haven for animals, and finding forever homes for those animals in our care. We also are committed to educating youth and the general public about responsible pet ownership as well as the ethical treatment of all animals. Our success will help ensure that people and animals can safely coexist, live within the law, and make Eastern Oregon a better place to live.
     We invite you to peruse our site to learn more about us and our mission, find resources dealing with animal care, and get a preview of some of the wonderful pets which are desperately in need of a safe and loving home.

Union County Ordinances require that every dog over 6-months-old and living within the county area have a valid dog license which costs $15 per year.
From Jan 1 through Sept 29, 2014, BMHA issued 226 Dog Licenses for a total income of $4170 which is used for animal care and Center operations. In January of 2014, BMHA staff member, Kim Hanson, documented that it takes a minimum of 8.74 minutes to archive each dog license application, plus another 4 minutes to print and issue the license. It may requrire up to 20 minutes additional to verify rabies information with the local vet office. Additional time is required if a client uses a credit or debit card for payment. No checks are taken as it costs $45 per check returned NSF. BMHA is now trying to get the pet owner to supply a pet photo so that the image may be archived for ID purposes.
