Who We Are

McKinley County Humane Society takes in 500+ dogs and cats per month from the city-county limits. Many of the outlying reservation strays are also brought to the shelter. Animals are held for a minimum of 5 days unless injured or ill. Due to the high intake of animals, limited cage/kennel space, and limited funding, their stay time is usually short; listings on the website may no longer be available. If you are looking for a new pet, it is best that you visit the shelter in person to meet your new companion. All adopted animals are sterilized prior to being released for adoption.


The McKinley County Humane Society exists to protect animals from cruel, neglectful and exploitative treatment.
LOCAL PET OWNERS CAN HELP SAVE LIVES AND PREVENT SHELTER DEATHS BY SPAYING AND NEUTERING THEIR PETS! Please be a responsible pet owner and get your pet fixed. Make an appointment with a local vet or call the shelter to get an appointment at the shelter's spay/neuter clinic. There are not enough homes for the unwanted litters of kittens and puppies being produced in our area. SPAY DAYS weekly and on some Saturdays. Call for an appt. A limited number of foster homes care for and socialize animals, though many more foster homes are needed. Save a lives by fostering! We appreciate any support offered which helps us save lives and reduce pet overpopulation. Spaying and neutering saves lives; spread the word!


McKinley County Humane Society has a spay-neuter clinic within the shelter which is open every Wednesday to reduce the EPIDEMIC PET OVERPOPULATION. Stop by the shelter for more info and to make an appointment for your pet/s. Donations to fund this program are greatly appreciated as many pet owners need assistance in getting their pets "fixed."
