Who We Are

The Calaveras Humane Society is a group of volunteers dedicated to ensuring a humane environment for the Calaveras County homeless pet population. Our projects include Low Income Spay/Neuter Assistance, Adopt-A-Pet events, Dog and Cat Rescue Teams, and Calaveras County Animal Services (county shelter) assistance.

Adopting a Friend

All unaltered animals (of alterable age) must be spayed or neutered before going to their new homes. All pets are current on shots. Dogs are heartworm tested and put on a preventative.

Volunteering and Donations

We need your help!

VOLUNTEERS needed for: Foster Care of pets--by fostering, you provide a safe haven for the pet until a permanent home can be found. This is a vital component of rescue. You may also help at Adopt-A-Pet events, assist with Fundraising, or volunteer at the San Andreas Animal Services facility walking dogs or cuddling cats and cleaning their cages. For more information on the numerous opportunities and to sign up, click here to go to our VOLUNTEER page

DONATIONS needed: Help us financially by becoming a member or making a one-time donation. We are in need of pet supplies like modular kennels, crates for transporting cats and dogs, Frontline, Advantage, Heartgard.....we constantly battle fleas and ticks. Other needs include food, veterinary care, exercise pens for puppies and kittens, large cages for cats/kittens, and scratching posts or cat condos. Toys for dogs and cats become lost and damaged and are always needed. Especially needed are Cat Litter and Kongs, Dog treats (but not rawhide) and all types of biscuits.
