Give a Wag! Gives to Monroe Shelters

In 1954, a group of individuals founded what is today known as the Humane Society of Monroe County. This bark-tacular organization was created with the well-being of every animal in mind. The shelter dedicates all of their time and resources to helping animals that are in dire need, whether for shelter or medical assistance. This no-kill animal shelter is open to the public Monday, Wednesday through Friday from 12:30 pm until 5 pm. They are also open on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 12:30 pm until 6 pm. This exceptional organization is located at 833 North Telegraph Road for your convenience. 

The Humane Society of Monroe County prides itself on keeping a close relationship with the surrounding communities in order to provide the best care possible for all felines and canines. This fur-tastic establishment does not receive any type of government funding and is instead run by the generosity of local civilians and businesses in the surrounding areas. With that being said, this shelter strives to maintain a paws-itive relationship with everyone in the community in order to protect and care for the fur-babies we all love. 

On top of everything else this organization has to offer, they also hold events every so often to raise money for the animals in their care. While there are not always events being held, they do have a resale shop inside of the Mall of Monroe where you can shop until you drop. This store accepts lightly used items as donations and accepts volunteers as well. Of course, all purchases will also go towards helping out the shelter.
