About Humane Society of Independence County
About Our Shelter...
The HUMANE SOCIETY OF INDEPENDENCE COUNTY is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping animals in our county. We rescue stray and injured animals, provide temporary care for homeless animals through foster homes and our shelter facility, and adopt homeless animals to permanent homes.
Our mission is to aid the citizens of Independence County in the rescue and adoption of abandoned, abused, or injured animals. The Humane Society of Independence County believes that a strong bond between man and animal is beneficial to both parties, creating an atmosphere of love and companionship that lasts a lifetime.
Come Meet Our Pets...We are located at #5 Environmental Drive, just north of Batesville, AR, on Hwy 167, Our shelter hours are 12-5:30 Tues-Fri, and 11-4 on Saturday. We have cats also located at PetSense in the Eagle Mountain Shopping Center. If you can't make it to our shelter during our normal hours, please contact us in advance and we can make arrangements to meet with you at a mutually convenient time.
Our Adoption Process...
Our basic adoption fee is $70, which includes shots (rabies too!), worming, flea treatment and spay/neuter. If the animal is too young for rabies vaccination, the adoption fee is $60. However, adoption fees will vary, based on animal type, breed, etc.
