Thinking of adopting an animal from HSOC? We would love to have you come and visit our shelter. Before coming to adopt, please make sure your current animals are: (1) up to date on all vaccines, including: for dogs - heartworm preventative, rabies; for cats, have been combo tested for feline AIDS/leukemia and rabies.  (2) are inside animals; (3) are spayed or neutered.  We welcome you to bring your dog to our shelter to test for compatibility. Please bring proof of vaccines with you when you come.

Our October newsletter is now available.  To see it click HERE
We are now offering as a community service a page of lost and found animals.  If you have lost a pet or found an animal that you think is a lost pet, email THIS ADDRESS with a picture, description, the location the animal was last seen, and contact info.  To look for a lost or found animal, click on the "Lost & Found" button to the left.

Remember, SPAY & NEUTER - A low-cost clinic is available to help those who are otherwise not financially able to have their pets altered  -
The Humane Society is operated by volunteers and funded only by donations and adoption fees (which basically only cover the basic medical expenses and boarding costs incurred for each animal awaiting adoption).  Please continue to support our efforts with your donations.
