Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
The Humane Society of Freeborn County is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to provide the means for the prevention of cruelty to animals, to enforce all laws designated for the protection of animals, to promote responsible pet ownership, to place all adoptable animals into responsible homes and to control overpopulation through community education and spay/neuter programs.
Most of our pets are at the shelter, but some pets are in foster homes. Please contact us if there is a specific pet you would like to meet. If it is in foster care, we will arrange a time for it to meet you at the shelter or for you to visit the foster home.
Our shelter can be a little hard to find (even GPS doesn't recognize our address), but we are now listed on Google Maps. Here's a link so you can see where we are, get some driving directions, and come meet all our wonderful adoptable pets! http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode&q=Humane+Society+of+Freeborn+County&aq&sll=43.641870%2C-93.359300&sspn=0.000840%2C0.001720&ie=UTF8&hq=Humane+Society+of+Freeborn+County&hnear&filter=0&update=1&ll=43.641867%2C-93.359306&spn=0.006739%2C0.013711&z=16&cid=7599479275589077323&iwloc=A
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
