Who We Are
The Danville-Boyle County Humane Society is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization formed in 1972 to help the abandoned and unwanted domestic animals in Boyle County.
The mission of the Danville-Boyle County Humane Society is to promote the humane treatment of companion animals through sheltering, adoptions, community education, and spay/neuter programs. we work toward the day when permanent, loving homes are available for all dogs and cats.
Adopting a Friend
Adopting from the DBCHS means giving a home to a dog or cat who needs one while at the same time adding a loving, playful, energetic member to your family. The adoption fee includes the spay/neuter surgery, first vaccinations (including rabies) and de-worming. All adoptable cats have been feline leukemia tested. Because spay\neuter surgery is mandatory for all animals adopted from the DBCHS, we schedule the surgery at the time of adoption and take the animal to the veterinarian's office for the procedure. Your pet is ready to go home in 1 to 2 days. Pets adopted on Fridays and Saturdays are ready to go home in 3 to 4 days. We offer a free obedience session for all dog adopters, and an additional classes are available. The free sessions are held monthly. Call our shelter for more information.
