About Our Shelter:

The HUMANE SOCIETY OF INDEPENDENCE COUNTY is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping animals in our county. We rescue stray and injured animals, provide temporary care for homeless animals through foster homes and our shelter facility, and adopt homeless animals to permanent homes.

Our mission is to aid the citizens of Independence County in the rescue and adoption of abandoned, abused, or injured animals. The Humane Society of Independence County believes that a strong bond between man and animal is beneficial to both parties, creating an atmosphere of love and companionship that lasts a lifetime.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are located at #5 Environmental Drive, just north of Batesville, AR, on Hwy 167, Our shelter hours are 12-5:30 Tues-Fri, and 11-4 on Saturday. We have cats also located at PetSense in the Eagle Mountain Shopping Center. If you can't make it to our shelter during our normal hours, please contact us in advance and we can make arrangements to meet with you at a mutually convenient time.

Our Adoption Process:

Our basic adoption fee is $70, which includes shots (rabies too!), worming, flea treatment and spay/neuter. If the animal is too young for rabies vaccination, the adoption fee is $60. However, adoption fees will vary, based on animal type, breed, etc.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
