The Huron Humane Society, Inc. began in 1980.
The Mission of the Huron Humane Society, Inc., is to provide no-kill solutions to reduce the number of homeless cats and dogs through education, rehabilitation and re-homing.
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to providing homes for Alpena's homeless and orphaned pets. We work to provide for the medical and social needs of the animals in our care and are a "no-kill" shelter, meaning that we do not euthanize healthy adoptable pets. We regularly provide medical care for sick and injured strays, and improve animal social skills and behavior, too.
Adoption Fees...Cats & Kittens $35 plus the cost of their spay or neuter
All cats and kittens are Leukemia & FIV tested, dewormed and vaccinated (with the exception of rabies and leukemia) upon arrival to the shelter. ShelterCare Pet Health Insurance for 30 days, and an exam at your vet. Microchipping is available for a small additional fee.
Adoption Fees..Dogs are $50 plus the cost of their spay or neuter. Puppies are $75 plus the cost of their spay or neuter.
The adoption fee for dogs/puppies covers vaccinations for Parvo, kennel cough, distemper, deworming, a vet exam, microchpping, and Sheltercare Pet Health Insurance for 30 days.
Our adoption process all begins with filling out our cat or dog application and getting approved. If you rent your home we do need proof from your landloard that you are allowed to have pets. If your application is approved we go ahead and complete the adoption here and pay the adoption fee. If the animal is not yet altered we call and make the appointment with the vet of your choice in the Alpena area. We then keep the animal at the shelter and take it in the morning of the surgery. The new owner will then pick up the animal from the vet and be responsible for paying the cost of the surgery.
