We are the Humane Society of Ottawa County (HSOC).
Our shelter is a 501c(3) no-kill shelter that was established in 1976. Since then, we have continued to provide a vital service to the community, not only for the animals, but for adults and children as well. Our organization prides itself by caring for the animals of Ottawa County.
Our goal is to turn unwanted, neglected and abused animals into loving members of new families. We are dedicated to a program of spaying and neutering animals to ensure that more animals find their way into caring homes.
We maintain a "NO KILL" shelter within humane guidelines.

The mission of the Humane Society of Ottawa County is to ensure that Ottawa County animals have adequate and humane care. We promote spay/neuter programs. We investigate complaints of animal cruelty and attempt to educate the public about the proper care of pets. While animals are at the shelter, they will be allowed to live a comfortable life and be adopted by responsible people.
Puppies (under 6mo): $125.00
Purebreds are slightly more, so ask for details.
An adoption application must be completed to be considered as a potential adoptive parent. We reserve the right to deny any adoption application at anytime for any reason.
Most animals have received vaccines, been dewormed, had blood testing and have been spayed/neutered by the time they are available for adoption.
We routinely have dogs, cats and kittens available for adoption.
Occasionally, we will have ferrets, guinea pigs and other "pocket pets" that need caring homes.
Animal shelters and rescue groups are great place to find a new pet. Shelters large and small always have a great selection of animals looking for new homes, from dogs, cats, birds and other small animals.
What kind of pet will be the best fit for your household?
Do you have enough time to devote to the daily needs of a dog?
Is there someone in your household who is allergic to cats?
Have you considered a non-traditional pet such as a rat or another small animal?
Doing your homework in advance will make your search easier and increase the chances that your new pet will be a happy addition to the family.
