Mission Statement

To provide the pets in our care with a decent, safe and sanitary place.
To prevent cruelty to animals.
To stop suffering among animals mutilated or injured.
To educate the public about the tremendous pet over-population facing the United States.
To promote spaying and neutering to stop the senseless killing of animals.
To place as many pets as possible in responsible homes.
We want the pets adopted from our agency to become part of your home.


The Calhoun County Humane Society (DBA "The Animal Shelter") is the only open-admission shelter in the County that holds healthy, friendly animals well beyond the legal holding period in hopes of finding them new homes. We rely on donations and volunteers to supplement our meager contract income. We need you!

All volunteers must fill out a volunteer packet. Anyone under 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

Would you recommend The Animal Shelter?

The animals are treated with love and respect by the staff. Everyone works hard to make them comfortable, clean and most of all, adoptable. The variety of volunteering activities is appreciated - even an hour here and there can make a difference.

The need is great - any time you give will go such a long way. And what better payment than making dogs and cats happy and finding them good homes?
