About Our Shelter:

The Sequoia Humane Society is a small 501(c)3 non-profit with the mission of providing shelter and humane care for animals while working vigorously to reduce the tragedy of euthanasia caused by too many animals, not enough homes. Our goals are to promote the welfare of all animals, prevent cruelty and suffering of animals, end the overpopulation of cats and dogs, keep animals with homes from becoming homeless, and find homes for all adoptable animals. The Sequoia Humane Society has been helping companion animals for over 30 years. For the past 20 years we have operating a shelter for homeless animals, and in July 2004 we became a "no-kill" shelter. In addition to our adoption services we provide low-cost spay/neuter vouchers to qualified low-income residents, and promote responsible pet ownership through our public outreach and education programs.

Come Meet our Pets:

Sequoia Humane Society's Pet Adoption Center is located at 6073 Loma Avenue, just east of the King Salmon exit, on the south end of Eureka, California. We are open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 5pm. We sponsor special events every month throughout the year, including Woofstock and Mutt Strut.

Our Adoption Process:

We invite people to tour our facility or visit us online and look at all the dogs and cats that are available for adoption. If you are interested in a particular animal you can fill out an application, and one of our adoption counselors will talk with you about the type of animal you are looking to adopt and how well it fits with your lifestyle. After visiting with the animal we ask you to sign an adoption contract. You will be given the animal's full medical history, a free month of Shelter Care Pet insurance, a collar and ID tag, plus a pet carrier for cats and a leash for dogs. All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworm & lymes disease (dogs) or feline leukemia & AIDS (cats), and microchipped.

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.
