Operating a humane society involves much more than running an animal shelter. As a non-profit, we must provide a degree of openness and transparency to reassure our supporters that our objectives and our actions are based on sound judgment and integrity.

Take a moment to read a few of our policies and position statements. Fundamental to each is the desire to create a high performance organization that demonstrates respect for its community and its citizens while striving to achieve its ultimate mission.
