At first, the society worked to the benefit of children, livestock and working animals. As conditions changed, the mission shifted to companion animals and pets. Today, The Humane Society shelters more than 12,000 animals every year, maintains more than a dozen Humane Programs, and is at the forefront of progressive animal welfare. This is "paw-sitively" an exceptional organization with services that include a pet food bank, pet loss grief support group, spay and neuter services, microchip plus foster and adoption services.
With a commitment to saving lives, the volunteers help save as many animal lives as possible by collaborating with and supporting both local and out-of-state shelters, rescue groups, and animal welfare programs who find themselves overwhelmed by full kennels. They provide education and bi-annual newsletters with updates and tips. Donors help to raise funds for veterinary care as well as helping with the costs of saving lives.
