The Humane Society of Decatur & Macon County is an all volunteer, not-for-profit organization that depends on donations and fund raising events to operate. We are a no-kill facility. Most of the animals who come to us come from the local Animal Shelter. We rescue those animals and nurse them back to health and then look to give those animals good, loving homes like yours. The Humane Society originated in 1923.
The primary goals are to provide help to animals in Decatur & Macon County that are abandoned, abused, neglected and to reduce pet overpopulation through spay and neuter programs and community education.
While the Humane Society of Decatur & Macon County works with all animal welfare organizations for the benefit of the animals and is supportive of the Macon County Animal Control and Care Facility, the Humane Society is a separate entity. It is the belief of our Board of Directors that the key to pet overpopulation is spaying and neutering. There are not enough homes for all the unwanted animals in our community.
To provide relief of suffering animals,
to prevent cruelty to animals,
to assist in the placement of animals,
to promote spay & neuter
and provide education to the community
for the humane treatment of animals
