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.
You can make a difference by providing a loving home to one of these animals. The adoption process is easy and we work with adopters to find a good match and provide resources to help ensure a successful placement. The adoption process starts with a visit to our facility where you can spend time with the animals and talk to our adoption team to find out which animals might best suit your family. All adoptions require a prior history check and adopters must agree to standard adoption requirements. Adoption costs range depending on the type and age of the animal. Animals are easier to view on a computer or tablet.
