We are dedicated to compassionate treatment of animals through; adoption, population control, education, and protection.
The Humane Society of Carroll County has been advocating for the health and proper care of animals for nearly 75 years. In 1945 a group of concerned citizens formed the Humane Society of Carroll County. In 1977, the Carroll County commissioners directed the Humane Society to enforce domestic animal laws, sell dog licenses and shelter animals. In 1981 a new county animal shelter was opened where it stands today. The Humane Society had six employees at that time. A large livestock holding facility was built in 1983 with donated funds, enabling the Humane Society to shelter loose livestock in a safe environment until an owner could hopefully be found. Today the Humane Society of Carroll County employs 14 full time and 6 part time staff members and adopts out numerous animals each year.
With a goal of finding suitable, loving homes for abandoned and stray animals, and enforcing state and county animal laws, the Humane Society continues its legacy of advocating for the humane treatment of animals.
There are hundreds of animals waiting for a second chance at the Humane Society of Carroll County. You can make a difference by providing a loving home to one of these animals.
Volunteers are vital to the success of the Humane Society. We rely on our dedicated volunteers to care and advocate for the thousands of animals that come through our doors each year.
Foster families provide in-home care for animals until they are adopted, ultimately saving lives. They play an important role in helping us to maintain high adoption rates with quality care.
