Welcome to the Circle of Friends Humane Society!   Thanks for visiting!

The Circle of Friends Humane Society gives pets of all kinds a second chance for a permanent, loving home. It’s the second chance they all deserve.

Our mission:

  • To shelter and care for lost and unwanted animals-
  • To place animals into humane environments-
  • To implement programs that increase everyone’s awareness of their responsibilities to all animals-

But we can’t do it alone. The responsibility for lost, unwanted animals rests with us all. That responsibility includes:

  • Adopting shelter pets
  • Learning about the responsibilities of committed pet ownership
  • Teaching children respect for all creatures
  • Reporting animal neglect/abuse to local law enforcement officials
  • Contacting legislators and encouraging them to pass more protective humane treatment laws

We are all entrusted with the protection of those unable to care for themselves, human and non-human alike.
