Humane Society
of Huron Valley

The. Humane Society of Huron Valley was founded
in 1896 originally for the protection of both children
and animals, changing to a shelter for only animals
in the 1930s. The Humane Society serves today as a
housing facility for strays and owner surrenders, as
well as offering a variety of services including a spay
and neuter clinic, a cruelty and rescue investigation
service, a lost and found for your pets, wildlife reha-
bilitation, educational programs, plus providing
information on adoptions. Approximately 50% of
the animals that come through the Humane Society
are adoptable, and of that percentage 65% are then
actually adopted. The animals that cannot and do
not get adopted are euthanized. The Humane
Society tries to emphasize that pet owners need to be
more responsible and know what they are getting
into before deciding to adopt a pet. The life of the
animal needs to take on more of a value within our
society. If people start to understand that concept
and it is taught to our young, places like the Humane
Society of Huron Valley will not have the many
times impossible job of finding homes for as many
animals as they do.
