Humane Society Of Carroll County

Humane Society of Carroll County has been advocating for the health and proper care of animals for over 75 years.

The Humane Society of Carroll County was formed by a group of concerned citizens in 1945. The Carroll County commissioners directed the Humane Society to enforce domestic animal laws, sell dog licenses and shelter animals in 1977. Then In 1981, a new county animal shelter was opened where it stands today. Our organization had six employees at that time.

A large livestock holding facility was built in 1983 with donated funds, enabling our facility to shelter loose livestock in a safe environment until an owner could hopefully be found.  Today, we employ 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 our shelter. 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.
