Your donation is appreciated to help us shelter and find loving homes for our pets!


HSO works with a local veterinarian referring pet owners to a low-cost spay/neuter appointment! For pet owners with income under $30,000 per year, a reduced rate is offered! HSO is helping pet owners experience responsible pet ownership by making these referrals, thus decreasing the number of unwanted and abandoned animals! Please contact our office at 479-394-5682 for a referral! Yay! No more worries about an unwanted litter!

Who We Are

The Humane Society of the Ouachitas (HSO) is a non-profit NO-KILL animal rescue organization, providing shelter, medical help and new homes for Polk County's homeless and abused animals. We have many dogs, cats, kittens and puppies of all shapes and sizes waiting for new permanent homes and people of their own. We are open 5 days a week. Come out today and adopt a new furry friend!

Adopting a Furry Friend

The Humane Society of the Ouachitas: Where your best friend is waiting! We have many great companions waiting for their own people to love and make smile. Please choose carefully as your new dog or cat will want to live with you for the rest of their lives. Dogs and cats often live 12 to 15 years. Dog adoption fee is $60.00. Cat adoption fee is $40.00. We feature special "Pets of the Week". Our "Shelter Stars" are our pets who have lived at the shelter for more than one year and would LOVE to have a 'forever' home. Their fee is 1/2 price! Please consider them as well as our "Golden Paws" our 'senior citizen' pets who are over 6 years of age... and adoptable at 1/2 price to senior citizens age 60 and over!
