About Us


Check out our web site www.heschatt.com to find out more information on our upcoming events and news.

Annual events are the Rabies Clinics (late April), Paws in the Park (October), Riverbend Festival (June) and weekend mobile adoption at PetCo and PetSmart.

Adopting A Friend

All adoptions are $75.00 and includes their spay/neuter, rabies shot, immunizations and micro chip.  Animals already spayed or neutered may leave with you upon approval of your adoption application.  Animals NOT spayed or neutered will have to go to the veternarian before you may take your new forever pet home.  You will choose a vet from our list and on the appointment date our animal service officer will deliver your pet to the clinic for surgery and you will pick it up that evening.

All adoptions also include 30 days of free health insurance.

Who We Are

The Humane Educational Society is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit that provides shelter for abandoned and owner surrender domestic animals (mostly dogs and cats).

Our animal care givers asses the animals surrendered to ensure they are healthy/adoptable animals and through great care of the staff and volunteers do our best to keep them happy and healthy until we can find their new forever home.
