We serve all of Marion County, Florida and surrounding counties.
The mission of The Humane Society of Marion County is to prevent the cruelty, suffering and over population of animals through education, housing and financial support.
Come Meet our Pets:
We are open to the general public every day except Wednesdays. Our adoption hours are from 10am to 6pm every day except Wednesday. We are at the PetsMart in Ocala every Friday, Saturday and Sunday for adoptions. Please go to our web (www.thehsmc.org) site to see the different events that we are involved through the year.
Our Adoption Process:
Our adoption fee for dogs is $85.00 and for cats is $50.00. There is an adoption application that must be filled out and approved. Once the application is approved a meet and greet and home visit must be completed before an animal can go home.
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.
