About Our Shelter:

The Humane Society of Fremont County, Inc. is a private, non-profit Corporation founded by the late Ralph J. Wann in 1951. His generous support during his lifetime and through a trust which he and Grace E. Green contributed, has made it possible for the Humane Society to continue operating and expand to what it is today.

Each year the Humane Society accepts thousands of dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits, gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, etc. Skilled professional care is given to every animal, including preliminary vaccinations before efforts are made to place him/her into a new home. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, first set of vaccinations, Humane Society ID tag, a free local health examination, and more!

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.
