About Our Shelter:

The Humane Society of Madison County is contracted with the Madison County Dog Warden to take in strays from Madison County. We take care of all stray dogs and owner turn in pets. We also take in cats and kittens. We have a program with the local prison in a foster care/training program. The inmates foster some of our dogs and teach them basic commands and work on housebreaking.

Come Meet our Pets:

You can meet most of the animals at the shelter during open hours of sunday thru saturday from 1:00-5:00. If the dog is in the prison program, you will have to schedule a day and time to meet the pet.

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.
