Mission

The Mission of the Panhandle Humane Society is to provide a nurturing and fear-free environment for the community and its pets in our care utilizing the Five Freedoms model. The Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare: ​1. Freedom from hunger and thirst by easy access to fresh, clean water and a diet to maintain health and vigor. 2. Freedom from discomfort by providing an appropriate environment, including shelter and a comfortable resting area. 3. Freedom from pain, injury, or disease by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment. 4. Freedom to express normal behavior by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal's own kind. 5. Freedom from fear and distress by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.

Volunteer Program

We have people in our community come and volunteer. Some do it to get hours for a school or work program; some do it just because they love animals. They can walk dogs, play with cats, or even help with dishes and laundry.

Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

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

Reduce the population of feral cats.

Educate the public, since they are the ones feeding the feral cats. Possibly open a business under the shelter's umbrella to help fund a TNR program as well as help for the community with the cost of spay & neuter, vaccinations, etc.

Utilize local media, including TV, Radio, and newspapers. Also look for opportunities to speak to local clubs and organizations, community events, etc.

We are scheduling time to meet with the local TV station and talk about the importance of not feeding stray/feral cats as well as spaying & neutering.
