We are a volunteer group that founded the St. John Humane Society in late 1991. Our services include: conducting animal rescues, adoptions, owner/pet reuinifications, educational programs, spay/neuter incentive programs, and a pet question/answer line. Currently, all our adoptable pets are residing with volunteers (foster homes) or in private boarding kennels. A processed application and appointment is required prior to visiting with any of our pets.
If you can help the society with the rising medical costs for animals in their care, please consider donating online through the Paypal link below or contact the society for more information. You can also see the society's "wish list" by clicking the link below. The society is a non-profit, all volunteer corporation that must raise funding to keep their doors open for the homeless animals. Donations are tax deductable and the animals are truly appreciative.
If you'd enjoy helping animals from your computer, join the list below. It is a free discussion/volunteer group where animal rescuers get to know each other and help via emails. Just enter your email address in the white box and click on the Yahoo Groups logo. You will receive an automated email giving you instructions on how to proceed after that. This is a closely monitored email group and not following instructions to complete the membership process will result in denial of your membership.
The pets on the page link below are only a portion of animals we have for adoption. Because we are volunteers who also work other jobs, the list is not always complete. If you are seeking anything in particular, please let us know; we might have it but not listed at the link below.
We do require a processed adoption application prior to setting up appointments to visit with an animal in our care. This policy is in effect to serve you with the best of our ability as well as protecting our volunteers from unscrupulous people who often times lurk on the Internet. We appreciate your understanding in this matter. We do not adopt our animals on a first come, first served basis; rather we try to match people with pets for a mutually rewarding, life-long relationship. All pets available for adoption have been vet checked, vaccinated, tested for the appropriate diseases and are altered. St. John Humane Society members and volunteers are eligible for a discount on the adoption fee.
