About Us

About Our Shelter

The mission of the Humane Society of the Dunes is dedicated to the rescue of abused, abandoned, sick, and injured animals, as well as their rehabilitation. We also help reduce the number of animals by spaying/neutering. Lastly, we strive to build relationships between people and animals in a healthy environment in the community. Our ultimate goal is to make sure every animal receives a happy and healthy home for the rest of their life.

The Humane Society of the Dunes offers animal care programs to regional schools, youth groups, and other educational institutions. Current plans also include animal visitation to nursing homes, hospices, etc. to allow therapeutic benefit afforded by animals. We also accept invitations to bring appropriately qualified animals to visit community functions.
