Welcome to The Humane Society of Morrow County!

To promote animal welfare.

To relieve animal suffering.

To educate the public.

That is our mission.

Since our inception in 1974, our mission has been to strive for the humane treatment of all animals.  From dogs and cats to horses and turtles, we believe every animal deserves a warm home and a loving owner on which they can rely.  At the Humane Society of Morrow County, we believe that every time we save an animal, we succeed in helping to make the world a better place -- thanks to the help and caring of our local community.

As a non-profit organization, we're only able to uphold our mission and commitment to the animals of Morrow County with the support and compassion of our members, pet fosters, volunteers and local community.  With your help and caring, we can continue to save animals from abuse and neglect.

If you're interested in 
adopting an animal, or would like to help foster a pet until that perfect match can be found, please contact us today.

  On October 15th, the Humane Society of Morrow County
  presented the Morrow County Dog Shelter with a $1,000 check
  to be used for dog fencing for the new county dog shelter that
  is being constructed on US 42. The Humane Society and the
  dog warden work cooperatively to address dog neglect and
  abandonment concerns within the County.  The Humane
  Society is manned solely by volunteers and has one volunteer
  humane agent to address abandonment, neglect and abuse
  concerns. All animals within the care of the Humane Society
  are fostered within private homes. The organization’s goal is
  to one day construct their own building that could possibly sit
  on the same property as the dog shelter to enable a
  collaborative effort for placement of dogs brought into the
  County Shelter after their stay there has ended. The Humane
 Society does have a fund that is earmarked specifically for shelter construction in the future. All funding received by
 the organization is from private donations and periodic grants for spay/neuter and medical assistance purposes.
 Presenting the check was Sandi Williamson, board member and Penny Cranston of Whetstone, a dedicated
 volunteer of the HSofMC.  Sarina Atwell accepted the check on behalf of the dog shelter.

The Humane Society of Morrow County is in need of cat food and cat litter.  We currently feed multiple
cat colonies throughout the county and offer food and litter for those that are in need of assistance. We
are taking donations for  UN-opened canned or dry cat food and any kind of cat litter.  You can bring your
donations to Groomingdales Pet Salon at 172 N Main St at the drop off box or make donations for cat
food and cat litter at  Specify cat food and cat litter drive on your donation.
