We are a non-profit Humane Society and pound. The primary mission of the HSOTC is to protect animals from cruelty, ignorance, and harm through public education and advocacy. We need more animal legislation, better enforcement of existing laws, and encouragement of pet adoption through Humane Society Shelters.
Here at the Humane Society of Otter Tail County, we try very hard to ensure that the dogs and cats who come to us find a perfect home. We do a short interview with the prospective new family, and have them fill out an application for adoption. This has them detail the home they will provide for the new pet. Once they are ready to adopt we make sure they have all the information they need to give the animal a good home. We charge an adoption fee and then we require a down payment towards the animals sterilization, which is refunded when the spay/neuter takes place. The first priority on our agenda though, is to find our animals the perfect match.
