Who We Are

Volunteers Needed!

The North Central Arkansas Humane Society is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1976. It began for the express purpose of finding homes for unwanted, abandoned dogs and cats. A Board of Directors oversees the operation of the shelter and thrift store. Local veterinarians participate in our adoption spay/neuters. Our shelter is supported by donations and by our thrift store.

Our Shelter

The North Central Arkansas Humane currently has room for 50 dogs and 60 cats. Shelter hours are 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday - Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Adoption Fees

Dogs - $60.00-Puppies - $70.00 (unless specially priced on Kennel Cards) Cats - $50.00 - Kittens $60.00 (unless specially priced on Kennel Cards) Adoption fees include spaying or neutering, basic vaccinations, Rabies vaccinations, and deworming.

Adopting a friend

Adoption fees include spaying or neutering, basic vaccinations, Rabies Vaccinations, and deworming. Animals will be placed with adults of legal age (18 yrs.) to be kept as household pets. The person who is to be responsible for the animal must be the one to fill out an adoption application. All animals will be spayed/neutered before adoption. Renters must have landlord approval to adopt a pet. Be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide training, medical treatment and proper care for the pet you intend to adopt.

How to begin

We have many dogs and cats available at our shelter. We welcome you to visit us and view them. You are not required to make a decision right away and may spend time with the pet you choose before commiting yourself to him/her. When adopting a new pet, the applicant will be required to fill out a contract stating that the pet is going to a healthy, caring home. Once the adoption is final, the pet will be taken to a local veterinarian to be spayed or neutered, if not already spayed/neutered. You may pick up your new pet after he/she is released from the veterinarian! If for some reason the pet does not work out for you, you are entitled to return the pet and receive a replacement at the discretion of the Shelter Manager.


Dogs require human companionship and should be part of the family household. The Humane Society strongly recommends that a dog not be kept strictly outdoors where it will receive limited human interaction and be exposed to numerous outside dangers. When a dog is to be kept outside a portion of the time, a fence is suggested.. We recommend that no dog be chained as a method of daily confinement. No dog will be placed to serve merely as a guard dog.


The Humane Society strongly recommends and encourages cat adopters to keep the cat indoors where it will be safe from numerous outside dangers. If you have any questions, feel free to email us!

We have become Bark Box Partners. For every purchase, we receive Bark Box Bucks to help the shelter animals.
