Mission Statement

Bond County Humane Society is based on the core value that all animals deserve to be treated in a humane manner. Dogs and cats with no homes need temporary shelter until a permanent, loving home can be found for them. We believe that awareness and education allows animals and humans to come together, for the benefit of both.

Adopt a Companion Animal

It is our goal to match you with the best kind of pet for your family and home. We require all prospective families to fill out an Adoption Application form. After we review your completed application, a BCHS representative will call you for an interview. Please visit our Adoption Page for more information about our pet adoption process.
