Our adoption process is very simple and our fee is $100 for dogs and $90 for cats, though some animals are priced above or below those amounts. All animals will be spayed or neutered and will have had age-appropriate vaccinations.  At any given time our shelter may have up to 100 dogs and 50 cats at our facility. Some of these animals are shy and get left behind. So, if you can find a place in your heart and home to open up to our wonderful animals, please come into our shelter today and ADOPT your next Best Furever Friend!

Our shelter always appreciates a helping hand! There are so many ways you can be a part of the Humane Society of Independence County, even if you do not want to help directly with animals there are other ways you can support our shelter.
