About Humane Society of Cherokee County
About Our Rescue Group...
We are caring volunteers who are committed to fulfilling the missions of HSCC:
To aid and protect stray, abandoned, abused and neglected animals–including but not limited to rescue, rehabilitation, spaying and neutering, shelter and foster care, adoption.
To aid in spaying and neutering companion animals–including but not limited to financial assistance for low-income owners. To educate and advocate on behalf of animals.
Come Meet Our Pets...We show animals on Saturdays from 10:00 to noon, and on other days by appointment, at our shelter near Tahlequah OK. Foster animals are shown by appointment.
Call 918-457-7997 (answering machine that is regularly checked). Leave your name, number and short message, speaking slowly & clearly.
Our Adoption Process...
We interview potential adopters in an effort to place pets with LOVING, RESPONSIBLE, APPROPRIATE owners.
There is an application and contract. The contract considers the animal, adopter, and Humane Society. Adoption fees vary somewhat according to several factors. The amount is always reasonable.
We prefer to adopt within "easy driving distance" of Tahlequah OK. Occasionally there will be an exception, but in any case we do not ship animals.
