The Copper Country Humane Society ( (CCHS) is a non-profit(501c3) organization that is dedicated to the welfare and humane treatment of animals. CCHS provides services for Keweenaw, Baraga and Houghton Counties plus the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC).

CCHS rescues and cares for over 900 animals each year. These animals were obviously someone's adored pet, yet.....

Many are never claimed...

The Copper Country Humane Society volunteers and staff work tirelessly to find new homes for all of the wonderful animals. Each day, there are new rescues, abandoned and forgotten pets in the community that need our help.

Adoption Services - Our successful adoption program matches homeless animals with responsible people seeking pets. The nominal adoption fee helps defray some of the costs of the initial vaccination and the mandatory spaying/neutering of adopted dogs and cats. Ninety -five percent of our dogs and cats are adopted or claimed every year. CCHS provides a temporary home for lost pets, a secure place for abused or neglected animals and veterinary care for sick or injured animals. CCHS does not euthanize adoptable animals. Animals accepted by the shelter are cared for until a new home can be found. CCHS euthanizes animals only for reasons of health, temperament or quality of life issues and then only when based on a veterinarian's recommendation.

If you're looking for a new family pet or faithful a companion, you've come to the right place! We have some wonderful animals up for adoption and any of them would be happy to come home with you!

Adoption Information - CCHS charges $50 for cats/kittens and $65 for dogs/ $75 for puppies. This price includes sterilization and vaccination. This is a very small price to pay for a friend that you will have for life.

We have a wide selection of animals which can be adopted by anyone in the United States.You do not need to be in our region to adopt from us. We have had successful adoptions to approved caregivers from throughout the USA. These adoptions would not be possible without the help of numerous volunteers who help make these long distance adoptions a success.
