Our mission is to humanely care for homeless pets, return them to their current owners, or adopt them to new loving homes. We will educate the public about responsible pet ownership & the importance of spaying & neutering their pets. Marion County Humane Society was founded in November 1986 operating out of the former city dog pound. Through the years they have returned lost pets to their owners, educated the public of the importance of spaying & neutering , & seen a major decline in the number of abandoned pets. The volunteers have placed over 5000 unwanted dogs & cats. In October 2000 the volunteers made a decision to close the MCHS. The facility had detireoted beyond repair. In June 2008 after raising over $230,000 the MCHS opened the doors of their new facility.
To adopt one of our shelter animals, an approved adoption application is required. All of our adoption fees include spay/neuter, first set of vaccinations, deworming, rabies vaccination, heartworm or FIV/FELV test, and microchip.
Our adoption fees are:
Dogs: $95 Senior Dogs (6 and over): $85 Cats and Kittens: $50
