The mission of the Humane Society is to prevent cruelty to children and animals by all reasonable means; to address animal related problems in our community; and to unite people from diverse ethnic backgrounds around an important community cause; namely, the concern for shared human/animal needs
In 1978, they launched a $175,000 campaign to build a low-cost spay/neuter clinic and general offices. The Humane Society used these original buildings until November of 2005 when they moved to the present location at 374 W. Orange Show Road.
This was the beginning of that initial dream to address the causes and prevention of pet overpopulation. Today the Society serves in excess of 30,000 animals a year by providing low-cost spaying and neutering services, low-cost vaccinations, medical services to pets of indigent people and education classes to over 15,000 children annually. In addition the Society employs a cruelty investigation officer to help prevent animal abuse and neglect.
