Who We Are

Since its inception in 1946, The Humane Society of Pulaski County has worked to improve the quality of life for Arkansas animals, saving nearly 70,000 animals over its rich history. A 501(c)(3) IRS charitable organization, the Humane Society receives no support from the City, County or State and depends solely on individual and corporate contributions to provide a wide variety of programs and services to people and animals in the community including:

** Providing quality animal care in our no~kill shelter, housing approximately 300+ animals at a time.

** Promoting spay/neuter programs including working to establish low-cost spay/neuter clinics and grants for companion animals who would not otherwise be spayed/neutered.

** Carefully screening adoptions and placing animals in good new homes.

** Providing emergency animal rescue and medical treatment for the injured and abused animals, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

** Reuniting Lost and Found animals with their families via a reporting database.

** Sponsoring volunteer activities in our shelter and in the community, including services provided by community rehabilitation agencies which allow misdemeanor violators to perform community service work at the shelter.

** Obtaining medical care for animals in our shelter.

** Promoting animal welfare, in areas such as abuse prevention and responsible animal care.

** Offering foster care programs for animals with special medical or behavioral problems.
** Educating children, civic groups and the community about humane treatment of animals and related issues, such as spaying and neutering.

** Serving as a community resource for animal~related questions and issues.

** Providing rescue of animals after disasters, such as the devastating 1997 and 1999 tornadoes.

Adopting a friend

Our adoption process begins with finding an animals who touches your heart, then making sure that the animal is compatible with your lifestyle and home. Making a good match is important to us as adoption is a lifelong commitment! We reserve the right to deny any adoption if we do not feel it is a good match.

We have an adoption form and specific questions regarding the animal(s) your are wanting to adopt. The completed application will be reviewed by HSPC adoption supervisors and any questions discussed with you. If you are approved for adoption of the particular animal you are hoping for, there is a $100 fee that includes spay/neuter, microchipping, up to date shots, medical care that has been provided from testing for heartworm, feline leukemia, etc. to worming, antibiotics and treatments for common illnesses. For some animals, extensive medical care including surgery has been provided.

All HSPC animals must be spayed and neutered prior to adoption. In the case of animals that have not yet been spayed or neutered, they may be fostered until the spay/neuter can be accomplished. A foster agreement is required. When the adoption is complete, an adoption contract must be signed before the adoption is final. HSPC reserves the right to make a home visit prior to and after any adoption to assure that the residence is appropriate to the animal's needs. Special counseling is provided for animals with special medical or behavioral needs.

All HSPC animals are provided an identification tag that should remain on the animal's collar permanently. Last year we were able to reunite a dog owner with a dog who had escaped from the fenced-in back yard, because he still wore the HSPC tag and we had the owner information!
