The Humane Society of Tuolumne County is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization established December 12, 1947 . At that time, however, there was no facility. The animals available for adoption were kept in volunteers’ homes. In the late l980’s, the Humane Society gained a business office, but the animals were still kept in the homes of volunteers. Then, in 1997, the Humane Society acquired its current facility in Jamestown where there are 35 dog runs and 36 cat cages with a capacity to shelter over 90 animals.
We are a limited intake facility. Half our adoptable animals come from Tuolumne County Animal Control, and the remaining adoptable animals are owner released.
Our mission: Find Homes for abandoned, abused and unwanted cats & dogs, while promoting responsible pet ownership. To provide and maintain a clean and safe haven for adoptable unwanted dogs and cats and promote responsible pet ownership.
We are 100% supported through private donations and volunteers. The HSTC does not euthanize an animal unless our team agrees its quality of life is critically compromised. HSTC placed over 500 companion animals into homes 2007-2008 fiscal years. We have a net loss of $205 on every dog and $80 on every cat adopted out. We accept as many animals for adoption that our donations and volunteers can support. More donations and volunteers=more happy adopted pets and fewer animals euthanized. During County-wide emergencies our crew of staff & volunteers assist Animal Control with pet rescue and providing temporary shelter. Assistance is available to low income cat owners from SNAP (Spay Neuter Assistance Program), program held the last week of each month.
