Mission

The Martin County Humane Society is dedicated to improving the lives of companion animals in our community and finding permanent and loving adoptive homes for the cats and dogs in our care. We provide a safe haven for animals in transition, serve as advocates for animals and their people, work to end animal overpopulation and educate the public about compassion and responsibility towards all animals. Our shelter is a no-kill facility where all incoming animals are evaluated, medically treated and rehabilitated when needed. The MCHS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization run completely by unpaid volunteers and through donations.

Notes from the nonprofit

Our goal is to save as many dogs and cats as we can. Being funded almost completely on donations and fundraisers and with volunteer labor, support financially is crutial to our mission.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our problem is space. We have a very small shelter and a very large stray/feral cat problem. We are working on trapping feral cats around the county as space/funding/time allows to get it under control.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our ultimate goal is to have no homeless animals roaming our county or suffering in unfit environments. We have spent the last year and a half catching up with the dog overpopulation issue and have managed to do it. Now we are continuing to battle the cat overpopulation issue that was ignored for many years. We also have a goal of getting all residents to spay/neuter their dogs and cats to prevent more unwanted litters.

Our main stragedy is to continue to have a public presense through social media, word of mouth, fundraising and adoption events, and any other special event that we can help get the word out about our mission. It really must be a community effort.

We have very dedicated volunteers, some that have been with the organization for many years. We also have a community that is on board with stopping the overpopulation of dogs and cats.

We still have not accomplished letting everyone in our county know that the animal shelter is now in existance. People are still learning about it all the time.
We have managed to decrease the amount of stray dogs throughout the county and have also managed to almost triple the amount of adoptions each year, due in large part to building the animal shelter in June of 2013.
