Good Shepherd Humane Society was established in 1974 as the area's first animal shelter. They are a nonprofit no-kill shelter, functioning to support and benefit animals in need as well as the citizens of Carroll County. Operating entirely on donations, memberships, fundraising efforts, and adoption fees, the organization relies on the support of the local community to sustain their life-saving efforts.
They also operate two Good Shepherd Humane Society Doggie Thrift Stores, the proceeds of which help fund spays, neuters, and vaccinations of all the shelter animals. In turn, Good Shepherd serves the citizens and animals of Eureka Springs and the surrounding area with compassionate care and extensive services. They strive to take in, rehabilitate, and rehome all stray, unwanted, and abandoned animals in Carroll County while advocating for humane treatment and responsible pet ownership. Furthermore, it is their goal to combat pet overpopulation through promoting spay/neuter procedures and offering a low-cost program to those in need.
All animals that come through the shelter doors get a health and wellness examination, follow-up treatment as necessary, and routine preventative medical care. All dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, if they aren't already, and vaccinated. On any given day, the shelter and their dedicated staff of six provide love and care for upwards of one hundred dogs and cats. Good Shepherd has their sights set on finding every homeless animal in Carroll County a loving, responsible home for the sake of the animals as well as the health of the community.
This off-leash area for dogs was first established in the summer of 2014. Since then, the doggie designated space has been a favorite of the area's furry creatures and their humans. The park is made up of about 1-acre of shaded, grassy land. There are woodsy areas with paths for your four-legged friend to romp around and lots of interesting natural features for you both to explore! The park also features two separate fenced areas for small and large dogs, poop bags and receptacles, benches, and even a doggie water fountain. Bring out your best friends to socialize, play, and stretch their legs!
Come on out for a day of fun and excitement with your canine companion! Paws for a Cause is a one-mile fundraiser dog walk in support of Good Shepherd Humane Society.

Well-mannered dogs and their leashed humans will meander through a well-marked course around the residential areas of town to a finish line. There is a doggie pit stop for water at the 1/2 mile mark and every furry creature who crosses the finish line will receive a prize and goodie bag! For a $5 entrance fee (which benefits the humane society) you can enter your pet in a series of contests including best dressed, best trick, and even a pet/owner lookalike contest! The event also features local animal businesses set up offering coupons, giveaways, and valuable pet information. Bring along your dog and move your paws for a cause!
