In September of 2007, The Humane Society for Boone County was organized by citizens of Boone County to continue the task of animal rescue for homeless domestic animals. Our primary mission is the rescue and adoption of homeless and endangered domestic animals. We are advocates for public education of humane animal care and the public awareness of current animal regulations.
With the recent donation of a 6-acre building site, we are nearing our goal of building a modern rescue and adoption facility.
While we are temporarily limited in the services we provide, our many dedicated volunteers help us by giving shelter and foster care to those animals in need. HSforBC provides food, healthcare, vaccinations and spay and neuter services for all animals in our care.
The Humane Society for Boone County is 100% volunteer operated and receives no tax dollars. Every person in our organization works for free because of our love of animals.
