Who We Are

The Humane Society of Monroe County (HSMC) was founded in 1954 by Monroe County residents who were concerned for the welfare of the companion animals in our community. For approximately 30 years, the society has operated a shelter where stray, abandoned or surrendered animals receive care food, shelter, medical attention and love until they can be placed in a permanent home. The society also promotes the humane treatment of animals through education; attempts to re-unite lost animals with their owners, and promote spaying or neutering of pets to control the population of unwanted animals.

The HSMC is a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer board of directors. We employ a small but dedicated staff to care for the animals, operate the shelter and conduct our outreach programs and events. Currently, the society does not receive government funding. Our budget is comprised from fundraising events, membership, cage sponsors and shelter operations. A dedicated group of volunteers provides invaluable assistance in conducting our community outreach programs.

Our Vision

The Humane Society of Monroe County envisions a community where companion animals are treated with respect and compassion and are provided with the proper care and welfare they deserve.

Our Mission

The mission of the Humane Society of Monroe County is to provide a safe and healthy temporary home for lost or stray animals and to seek superior permanent homes to ensure their long-term welfare. Through education and advocacy, the Humane Society of Monroe County will promote the humane treatment of companion animals and will work toward reducing and ultimately eliminating pet overpopulation in Monroe County.
