Mission and History

The Humane Society of Charles County has the dual mission of promoting the humane treatment of animals and of fostering a respect for all life, both animal and human.
  
The Humane Society had only 25 members and less then $100 when it began in 1978. Our one objective was to rescue dogs and cats hit by cars. Through the years, we have grown to over 1,700 families strong. Our services have greatly expanded and we are now able to shelter rehabilitate and adopt rescued animals in our modern facility on Industrial Park Dr. in St. Charles. In 1989, we expanded our dog run area from 10 to 24 runs, and in 1995, we added a larger cat area, a quarantine room with additional dog runs and cat cages, and a multi-purpose/humane education room. In March 1998, we began spaying and neutering all animals before adoption in our own spay/neuter clinic.

 
Our Services include:
  • Providing emergency veterinary care and rehabilitative care to injured or abused animals.
  • Accepting all animals brought to us and operating our own shelter and adoption center.
  • Sales of Charles County dog licenses.
  • Sponsoring low cost rabies vaccine and microchip clinics for dogs, cats, and ferrets.
  • Spaying/neutering of all pets before adoption and low cost surgeries for the public.
  • Offering human and environmental education programs to schools and other groups.
  • Sponsoring a Junior Volunteer program for students ages 14 and up, enabling them to earn required community service hours for high school graduation.
  • Offering lost/found and information/assistance service to the public.

YOUR DONATIONS MAKE THIS ALL POSSIBLE.

All of our dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, have rabies and distemper shots (age appropriate), and are dewormed. Additionally, each has a microchip that contains information that can help any shelter locate the pet's owner (as long as you register the chip) in the event the pet becomes lost.

All fees are used to cover operating costs, repairs and improvements necessary to provide the care required for lost, stray, or abandoned pets brought to the Humane Society of Charles County (we are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization).
