We envision for the future: A time when every treatable and rehabilitatable animal will be treated, rehabilitated and adopted to forever homes. A time when Tri-County Humane Society has abundant resources and finances to carry out its mission and vision. A time when Tri-County Humane Society will use technology efficiently to meet the needs for all staff, adopters and animals. A time when the community will be well educated about the Tri-County Humane Society mission, vision, purpose, and practices. A passion to continually explore new options and embrace new opportunities and improved animal care and enrichment techniques. A time when Tri-County Humane Society is recognized as the leader in responsible companion animal care. The continual development of a sound foundation to support the shelter as it evolves to meet ever changing community and animal welfare needs. A state of the art facility.

• Strive for the highest level of animal care through the adherence of best practices and enrichment programs • Increase number of adoptable animals through behavior modification (foster homes to work with behaviorists) • Increase number of adoptable animals by leveraging foster program to provide care for treatable illnesses • Work to decrease the number of unwanted animals- with in home counseling, training programs, and spay/neuter education • Continue working on our capital campaign • Create a cat colony room • Focus on an environment that helps animals thrive • Create more quarantine space • Move surrender area • Bring surgery center back into the main building • Create a better retail storefront

Board and staff are focusing on ways to Improve and expand revenue sources.

Track the data and finance reports. Keep those initiatives on the agenda and visit progress reports at board and staff meetings.

For years now, we have achieved and maintained the goal of no euthanasia of healthy adoptable animals.  Our focus has now been on the goal of no euthanasia of treatable and rehabilitatable animals. The progress made thus far is remarkable and staff takes great pride in every additional animal saved. Foster homes are one of the main tools in our tool box to make this happen. We have a full-time foster care manager and our placement rate was 93.44% in 2017. The wellness of the animals in our care is always at the forefront of our minds. We have a dedicated team of animal health care specialists who helped some of the most vulnerable members of our society, the animals coming to TCHS. We are so grateful for the services they provided in 2017. Those services gave 2,921 animals that first big step toward another chance for a happy life. Many local veterinary clinics provide us low-cost veterinary services.
