SoHumane is a registered not-for-profit organization dedicated to the humane treatment of companion animals in Medford, Oregon, and beyond. Mae Richardson founded the Humane Society of Jackson County in 1928 as an all-volunteer organization that initially provided services for displaced dogs and horses. Today, SoHumane.org provides quality care for dogs and cats while working to make a difference in the pet overpopulation problem. Annually, SoHumane serves 1,400 companion animals on average. In 2012, we successfully adopted out 1,338 animals, spayed or neutered 600 animals, and saved 700 animals from euthanasia at other shelters through the “Saving Train” program. Our strategic areas of focus are to provide shelter and adoption services for displaced pets while reducing pet overpopulation through spay/neutering. SoHumane provides humane education opportunities for people of all ages throughout the community. Additionally, we currently educate more than 1,000 children in our local schools each year via programs that foster compassion for all living things. Programs Saving Train: SoHumane rescues animals from shelters where they have already been marked for death. These are healthy, adoptable animals who have been overlooked and have run out of time at overcrowded public facilities. Senior Pets: We know that senior animals (those seven years of age and older) are among the first to be euthanized in many shelters that have an abundant supply of young energetic pets. We believe every animal — no matter their age — deserves a second chance. Medical Needs: By addressing treatable medical conditions, we remove one of the biggest barriers to adoption and increase the number of animals who find new homes.
