About Our Shelter:

The Boone Area Humane Society was founded in 1977. We believe that because people domesticated animals, we have a responsibility to ensure their welfare. To ensure humane treatment, we respond to animal neglect and abuse calls, provide animal control, operate an animal shelter for lost, found, and unwanted pets and provide humane education.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our summer hours Monday through Friday are 11AM-6PM, winter hours are 11AM-5PM. We are open Saturdays from 11-4, closed Sundays and holidays. To see ALL of our adoptable animals!

Our Adoption Process:

After filling out an application, there is a 24 hour hold on all pending adoptions. We do not adopt out of state. A check with your vet and approval from a landlord are required if necessary. Dogs are $75, cats are $50. There are discounts for multiple animal adoptions and for senior citizens adopting.

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.
