Our Mission

The Bradford County Humane Society (BCHS) is a private, non-profit organization established in 1960 by area friends of animals.

The Society provides comfort and care to lost, unwanted and abused pets through its shelter in Ulster, investigates reports of animal neglect and abuse through a court-appointed humane officer and strives to prevent cruelty and neglect by educating the public on the behavior and needs of animals.

BCHS is a membership organization. Basic dues are $10 per year. The Society is governed by a volunteer board of directors who are elected by the membership at the annual meeting in April. Click here for a membership form to print and mail in.
