Who We Are
It is our mission to provide humane care and treatment for all animals needing protection in Branch County, to promote enforcement of laws enacted for the protection of all animals, to educate the public regarding animal safety issues, and promote the importance of spaying and neutering to control the unwanted pet population.
The Humane Society of Branch County was organized in 1973 by Debbie Brooks. It was incorporated as a non profit organization in 1974. In 1976, a temporary shelter was set up at Coldwater Lake. That winter the Society sold Christmas trees to raise money for a Mobile Animal Rescue Unit. A donation from George Jewel aided the group’s financial goal for a pole building. It opened at the current location in spring 1979. The land was donated by Oral (Bud) & Ida Mae Stetler. As recently as March 2001, the shelter was in danger of closing.
We are a no-kill, non-profit organization. We do not receive any city, county, or state funding. Our facility is run thanks to donations, bequests, grants, fund raising projects and a group of fine dedicated, caring volunteers. Plans are underway for additional building construction to better meet the need for pet housing.
Adopting a friend
Adult Dogs: $175. Spayed/neutered, heartworm tested, booster shots, wormed and flea meds.
Puppies: $200 That comes with an agreement between the family and the shelter that the family will have the puppy spay/neutered when they are old enough to have this done. We have worked out a deal with one of our local vets so the procedure will be paid for by the shelter. So, that is included in the cost of the puppy.
Adult Cats: $40.00. This includes spay/neuter and aids/leukemia test.
Kittens: $55 That comes with an agreement between the family and the shelter that the family will have the kitten spay/neutered when they are old enough to have this done. We have worked out a deal with one of our local vets so the procedure will be paid for by the shelter. So, that is included in the cost of the kitten.
The questionnaire has fields that can be clicked on and typed in—but must be downloaded to your computer first. If opened with Adobe Reader it can be emailed using the “Click Here to Email” box. However if all fails it can be printed and filled out———then sent, faxed, emailed or brought to the shelter.
We are looking for people to come to walk the dogs and play with them in the fenced in yard. This type of interaction goes a long way to provide happiness and contentment——for both the dog and volunteer.
Our Wish List
While there are many things we need, the list below covers those things we can always use, and those that are the most pressing needs.
- blankets, rugs and towels – used ones are just fine
- dog/cat crates for showing the animals at adopt a pet sites
- dog/cat canned and dry food is always needed
- leashes and collars – used are fine, all sizes, dogs and cats
- Pine Sol
- cat litter
- gas cards
- Sam’s Club gift certificates
The Humane Society of Branch County exists solely on donations and volunteers. Donations are always welcome and may be tax deductible too.
Expansion of the facility is a goal that we are trying to attain. More room means more pets that we can give a second chance to. As always nothing is cheap and we need all the help we can get to pay for this.
