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 is required for all shelter visits.

Energetic or couch potato, loving or independent, we have all types of dogs and they are waiting for their forever home! Take a look and see which one is right for you!

DOGS

From spunky to docile and cuddly to independent, Humane Educational Society has dozens of kittens and cats waiting for their forever homes. Take a look and see which one is right for you!

CATS 

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

FOSTER PETS

Some cats aren't suitable for adoption as house pets.  To prevent euthanizing these deserving creatures, we bring to you the barn cat program.
