Fundraisers are an important part of the Humane Society. We cannot help the many sick, injured and abandoned dogs and cats that cross our path without them. We are very grateful for your participation.
To provide relief of suffering animals, to prevent cruelty to animals, to assist in the placement of animals, to promote spay & neuter and provide education to the community for the humane treatment of animals.
The Humane Society of Decatur and Macon County originated June 21, 1923. We are a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Therefore, donations to us are tax deductible. We are a no-kill facility. Our primary goals are to reduce pet overpopulation, and, find forever loving homes for the sick, injured, abused, neglected, and abandoned animals in Decatur and Macon County that come into our facility. While we are supportive of the Macon County Animal Control and Care Facility and work with them for the benefit of the animals in our community, we are a separate entity.
We offer discount spay/neuter programs all year 'round to low income, unemployed pet owners, senior citizens, and qualifying persons in need. In honor of Spay Day 2013 on February 28th, we issued 180 free spay/neuter certificates to qualified pet owners during the month of February. There was a $20 co-pay requested from the owner to help us pay for vaccines. These programs exist because local veterinarians work with us to provide discount spay/neuter surgeries that we can afford to pay.
Our TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) program for feral cats is helping to reduce cat overpopulation. In 2012, the Humane Society of Decatur and Macon County trapped more than 600 cats under our TNR program. All were spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, left ear tipped, and returned to their area or relocated to barn homes.
Donations are a must for us to help the animals in our facility as well as continue our TNR and Spay/Neuter Programs.
