About Us


We are looking for volunteers who are committed, caring and responsible to truly make a difference in the lives of the abandoned and homeless animals in our care.  We need friendly outgoing and personable volunteers to work with and assist our staff at the shelter, off site adoptions and at fund raisers. 


Volunteers are vitally important to our work of saving the animals. Each task you perform, adds up to a significant contribution to the mission of our shelter in saving lives. Volunteers help us to enrich the lives of the animals housed at the shelter, provide quality service to the public and promote responsible pet ownership.

Who We Are

The Williams County Humane Society was established in Williams County in 1970. The building is located on County Road 13, North of Bryan Ohio. Prior to 2005 this building was only used to hold educational meetings. In 2004 a capital campaign was established to start raising funds to renovate the existing building. By July 2005 the goal was met and the building was opened to the public. Within one hour of being opened, we had seven dogs surrendered and thirty-eight cats. It become abundantly clear to the board of directors that this shelter was a much needed operating organization within Williams County. To date, The Williams County Humane Society has become a very valuable asset to our county. We house at anytime thirty plus dogs and hundreds of cats and kittens.

We have two humane officers that work with local and state law enforcement to investigate animal cruelty and neglect. We currently have one full time and three part time employees that not only work for the shelter, but give countless hours as volunteers. We work with Job and Family Service, The Williams County Probation Department, local schools, and organizations within the community to provide needed community service hours.

We are currently funded only by donations. We receive NO county, state or federal funding.
