About The Williams County Humane Society

The Williams County Humane Society was established in Williams County in 1970. The building is located on County Road 13, North of Bryan. Prior to 2005 this building was only used to hold educational meetings. In 2004 a capital campaign was established to start raising funds to renovate the existing building. By July 2005 the goal was met and the building was opened to the public. Within one hour of being opened, we had seven dogs surrendered and thirty-eight cats. It become abundantly clear to the board of directors that this shelter was a much needed operating organization within Williams County. To date, The Williams County Humane Society has become a very valuable asset to our county. We house at anytime thirty plus dogs and hundreds of cats and kittens.

We have three humane officers that work with local and state law enforcement to investigate animal cruelty and neglect. We currently have one four part time employees that not only work for the shelter, but give countless hours as volunteers. We work with Job and Family Service, The Williams County Probation Department, local schools, and organizations within the community to provide needed community service hours.

We are currently funded only by donations. We receive NO county, state or federal funding.

Become a Donor - This is a great way for a local business who may have the means but not the time to help support us. We appreciate all donations no matter how small or large the amount. We would like to extend a large thank you to all our current business sponsors. Interested in joining our list of current business sponsors? Click here for more information

The Williams County Humane Society's adopted pets

Adopt a Pet is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in Bryan, OH.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
