Humane Society of Johnson County

Johnson County Humane Society

The Humane Society of Johnson County is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization that strives to benefit our community by enhancing the companion animal-human bond through education and adoption programs. We are not a government entity. Therefore, we are not a part of Johnson County Animal Control. However, we do work with their shelter on occasion to place the picked-up animals back with their original families or with new homes through our foster program, “Shelter Without Walls.” Please remember, HSJC does not operate a shelter at this time.

The Humane Society of Johnson County helps assure that local animals will receive the protection they need and deserve. We receive no financial assistance from taxes or national humane societies. Funds are obtained through donations, sponsorships, bequests and special fund raising activities. The Society does not receive any funds from the federal, state, county or city government.

Aside from the assistance to animal control, we offer a low cost spay/neuter program, we provide limited funds for assistance to the spay/neuter program and emergency pet medical assistance in the county, and provide education programs for the county schools and adult groups.
