Humane Educational Society finds loving homes for thousands of animals each year. We do not impose time or space limits on animals at the shelter.  While browsing available animals online is a fantastic tool, there truly is no substitute for meeting your potential new best friend in person. Our adoption staff will be happy to help you get some one-on-one time with available pets and can help you choose the right companion based on the needs of the animal and your lifestyle.  

Appointment required for all shelter visits.

    Thanks to loving individuals, many of our pets are living the life in a foster's home until they find their forever home.

  • Occasionally, we have small critters come to us who are waiting on a place to call their own.

  • Portrait with Cat

    Some cats aren't suitable for adoption as house pets.  To prevent euthanizing, we started the barn cat program.

You help make our programs successful!
