My name is Jasmen and I live here at the Humane Society of Branch County. The food's good here and I have plenty of friends to talk to but it's just not the same as having a forever home with a loving family. I've been here for a while and have seen other dogs come and go. Someday it'll be my turn. I'm looking forward to going for walks, going on trips or just laying around and watching TV with my future human pets. Please drop by and get to know me. I've been waiting all my life for that one special visit.--------- Seriously folks, Jasmen is a great animal. For the life of me I just can't figure out why she hasn't found a family yet. It might be because the frosting on her muzzle makes her look older than she really is. Jasmen is a good dog who deserves a fair shake.UPDATE----Jasmen has been adopted out to a loving family!!!! What great news. Please consider making one of our other pets just as lucky as Jasmen. They'd love you forever for doing it.
I met Shennah when she was first brought to the shelter. You could tell she was a well kept pet who was really missing her owner. Being on the mature side--11 years old-- I knew she would most probably have a hard time finding a home. Then one day a lady from the Detroit area called about her. She had found out about Shennah on the PetFinder website by doing a search for Norwegian Elkhounds. Shennah is now a happy member of this woman's family. She has a loving and caring home in which to live out her remaining years.
Camden Car Club Supports Shelter
On the 1st Tuesday of the month, May through October 12, you could find beautiful classic cars rolling into Camden. Directed by Jim and Meg Hefner, it is like taking a ride back in time.
The members and their guests enjoy a night of fun and conversation. The car cruise also made a trip to the shelter again this year with 28 cars in attendance. The club generates money from games such as the fan belt toss and the washer toss. $471 was generated on that night alone at the shelter.
On October 15 at the Camden Park a check was presented to Jack Fyfe for an additional $1200.
We are so grateful to the car club for their generosity and support of the shelter.

Proceeds to benefit the Humane Society of Branch County
It is our mission to provide humane care and treatment for all animals needing protection in Branch County, to promote enforcement of laws enacted for the protection of all animals, to educate the public regarding animal safety issues, and promote the importance of spaying and neutering to control the unwanted pet population.
The Humane Society of Branch County was organized in 1973 by Debbie Brooks. It was incorporated as a non profit organization in 1974. In 1976, a temporary shelter was set up at Coldwater Lake. That winter the Society sold Christmas trees to raise money for a Mobile Animal Rescue Unit. A donation from George Jewel aided the group's financial goal for a pole building. It opened at the current location in spring 1979. The land was donated by Oral (Bud) & Ida Mae Stetler. As recently as March 2001, the shelter was in danger of closing.
We are a no-kill, non-profit organization. We do not receive any city, county, or state funding. Our facility is run thanks to donations, bequests, grants, fund raising projects and a group of fine dedicated, caring volunteers. Plans are underway for additional building construction to better meet the need for pet housing.
Adult Dogs: $150. Spayed/neutered, heartworm tested, booster shots, wormed and flea meds.
Puppies: $200 That comes with an agreement between the family and the shelter that the family will have the puppy spay/neutered when they are old enough to have this done. We have worked out a deal with one of our local vets so the procedure will be paid for by the shelter. So, that is included in the cost of the puppy.
Adult Cats: $30.00. This includes spay/neuter and aids/leukemia test.
Kittens: $55 That comes with an agreement between the family and the shelter that the family will have the kitten spay/neutered when they are old enough to have this done. We have worked out a deal with one of our local vets so the procedure will be paid for by the shelter. So, that is included in the cost of the kitten.

We are looking for people to come to walk the dogs and play with them in the fenced in yard. This type of interaction goes a long way to provide happiness and contentment------for both the dog and volunteer.
While there are many things we need, the list below covers those things we can always use, and those that are the most pressing needs.
The Humane Society of Branch County exists solely on donations and volunteers. Donations are always welcome and may be tax deductible too.
Expansion of the facility is a goal that we are trying to attain. More room means more pets that we can give a second chance to. As always nothing is cheap and we need all the help we can get to pay for this.
The Humane Society of Branch County is located approximately two miles south of US-12 in Quincy Michigan.
