The Berkeley Humane Society provides complete care for homeless animals, from rescue to rehabilitation to placement. We match animals with loving and committed adopters, strengthen the human-animal bond, and promote the humane treatment of all animals. Our vision is to be an innovative leader in animal welfare and to provide critical resources to our community, leading the way with best practices in animal care to reduce the number of homeless pets in our community and beyond.

All of our animals receive veterinary and behavioral evaluations, spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip, heartworm testing (dogs over 6 months), FeLV/FIV testing (cats), heartworm preventative, flea and tick preventative and de-worming.

Our adoption package includes adoption counseling and follow-up calls, a take-home adoption packet, temporary collar and ID tag, temporary leash or carrier, and a certificate for a free examination at a local veterinary hospital.
