With our Golden Friendship program, senior citizens may adopt qualified pets (adult and sterilized) at no cost.
Our wonderful Pet Therapy program allows volunteers to take puppies and kittens to visit area Assisted Living Facilities and Hospitals for Pet Therapy. This has been proven to bring positive responses and results from those that are ailing or recovering.
The Humane Society also offers a Foster Care program which means providing temporary homes and care for shelter animals that are sick, injured or too young to be currently placed up for adoption.
