Pet overpopulation is a national epidemic; each year almost 5,000 animals are delivered to our shelter. Many arrive injured and sick and often require medical attention or surgery. Only responsible human guardianship and a heightened public awareness of the need for prevention through spaying and neutering will bring about the changes in pet overpopulation.
Humane Educational Society is striving to educate the public concerning proper care and treatment of all companion animals and to utilize available resources to effectively reduce the number of those animals found homeless in our community. These programs and services are designed to serve the animals in our care and to give them a second chance. HES' purpose is to help lost, abandoned or abused animals and our goal is to never euthanize an animal because there is not enough room for them in their shelter.
