Agency Overview

The Mission of the Carthage Humane Society is to improve the lives of animals, alleviate their suffering, and elevate their status in society.  We safeguard, rescue, shelter, heal to the best of our ability, adopt and advocate for animals in need, while inspiring community action and compassion on their behalf.  

The Carthage Humane Society houses an average of 100 animals per day.  We are an open admission shelter and adopt locally to the Carthage Community and surrounding areas.  We also participate in transports, getting adoptable dogs and puppies to areas of the country where they area adopted.
