Our Featured Pet...

Name: Petey
Breed: PitBull
Age: 1.5 yrs. old
Sex: Neutered Male

Petey was abandoned by his owner when they moved and left him behind to survive in the snow. Compassionate neighbors took him in and are fostering him until his new loving, permanent home can be found. Because Petey's first year of life was without training or much attention, he needs an owner who will spend time with him, guiding him to be the wonderful dog that he can become with the proper training, love and attention he deserves.

We ask for a $95.00 donation for dogs and a $75 donation for cats. Our adoption donation is quite a bargain if you add up the costs of everything we include; our animals are already spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations and have been tested for FLA virus (cats) and Heartworm (dogs). We also include a free local Veterinarian office visit, a folder of valuable information about your pet, a DVD to help you and your new pet adjust, and a goodie bag of treats, coupons, samples and a toy. During the "good weather" months, we will be having adoption days throughout our mountain communities at which times most of our listed animals can be seen. Please refer to our adoption dates, locations and times on the Home or Calendar page of this website, or email us for more info.

Who We Are


The Mountains' Humane Society was formed in 1975 by a group of mountain residents who shared a concern for the welfare of local cats and dogs. Their purpose was to provide humane care for the animals, to seek to return lost pets to their owners, and to seek homes for animals without owners. A phone service was begun.
The progress of the organization has been controlled by the availability of funding. In the early days, the sources of funds were dues, general donations, yard sales, bakes sales and spaghetti dinners.
The organization grew in 1986 and added other fund-raising activities. A vaccination clinic was also sponsored in 1986, and T-shirts were sold as well.
In 1987, the Mountains' Humane Society began issuing vaccination certificates and providing limited veterinary help in special cases. With pet overpopulation looming ever large, the Mountains' Humane Society began offering spay and neuter certificates to the public. Each certificate represents a discount of $10 to $25 off the cost of spay or neuter, depending on the type and size of the animal, and is subsidized by the MHS whenever a certificate is redeemed.
Beginning in 1980 the Mountains' Humane Society began offering pet ID tags at no cost.
The Mountains' Humane Society began participating in the Mountain Thrift Shoppe, founded to aid local charities. Volunteers on behalf of the Mountains' Humane Society are a source of funds distributed by the Mountain Thrift Shoppe semi-annually.
In 1996, the Strut Your Mutt event was organized and is an annual summer event. It attracts local pet owners who can show off their dogs and compete for prizes. The event has grown yearly.
In 2000, the Mountains' Humane Society held its first annual benefit dinner with modest success. The second annual benefit dinner held in October 2001 was, by all accounts, a tremendous success. Adoption days, and a foster care program, have all come into existence; a spay-and-neuter van has begun as-needed visits.

By all accounts, as of 2005, the Mountains' Humane Society has experienced tremendous growth and success in the community
