About Berrien County Humane Society
About Our Rescue Group...
The Berrien County Humane Society Is a small, not for profit organization. Our goal is for every pet to have a good home. We encourage pet spay/neuter to reduce the unwanted pet population. As a non-profit organization, any and all donations are greatly needed and appreciated. Our organization exists, in large part, thanks to donations-----whether the donation is one of money, time, materials to build safer outdoor enclosures for animals, animal foods, bedding for animals, cleaning supplies, cat litter, or many, many other items too varied to mention here. We also need volunteers on a continuous basis in order to help us in all aspects of caring for the ever increasing number of animals that are in our care. If you wish to contribute on any level to the humane society, we would love to hear from you.

Our Adoption Process...
We require an adoption application (request one at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to our website for one); this tells us a little about the potential owner and helps us to know if the chosen animal is a good match. Each new owner must sign an adoption contract. Georgia law requires that any domestic animal adopted from a shelter or pound be spayed/neutered. So in keeping with the law, we spay/neuter ALL pets BEFORE they leave the shelter. ADOPTION FEES: Our adoption fee for all dogs is $75.00; this covers spay/neuter, rabies vaccination, Heartworm test if over 6 months old, Combo vaccination (Parvo, Distemper, etc.) & first worming. Our adoption fee for cats is $75.00; this covers spay/neuter, rabies vaccination, Feline Leukemia Test, 4-Way-Combo vaccination, and first worming. We ask new owners to take their pet to a vet within 5 days for a checkup; this is at the owners expense. If the adoption doesn't work out, we expect the pet to be returned to us; not sold or given away. We will refund the adoption fee, or replace the pet, if it is returned within 7 days.
