What is the mission of your agency?

Alachua County Humane Society is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that strives to eliminate euthanasia of healthy, treatable cats and dogs in our community.


How do you impact the community in a positive way?

In 2013, Alachua County Humane Society took 1,255 dogs and cats into its adoption program and found homes for 1,165. Each year, we work diligently to increase our capacity, and do our part in ending needless euthanasia.


What specific steps do you take to reach your goals?

Alachua County Humane Society supports the community’s efforts to end needless euthanasia by taking in cats and dogs and finding them happy, healthy, loving homes. The organization focuses on the population of animals found at our local shelter, Alachua County Animal Services, and more specifically, those slated for euthanasia.

This means that the cats and dogs transferred into the adoption program were literally saved from possible death. In order to take in as many animals as possible, Alachua County Humane Society utilizes community support through the foster program, volunteering, and of course, private giving.
