Finding a Local Shelter or Humane Society


Humane societies, shelters and other non-profits have been in the news recently regarding their euthanizing practices. At the center of the debate is whether or not it is acceptable for humane societies and shelters to euthanize animals for lack of space purposes. While this is definitely a divisive issue, donors on both sides of the debate will be able to locate organizations that match their criteria by searching for charities on Charity Navigator’s website. All no-kill shelters can be found here. The majority of humane societies do euthanize at least some animals for lack of space purposes. Humane societies can be found by clicking here.
