About Us

The Calhoun County Humane Society is a Texas Non-Profit Corporation.

In January of 2006 we received our
501(c)3 tax exempt status. We organized and established this all-volunteer group to enable more adoptions of dogs and cats from our local animal shelter through our intervention. Many animals are euthanized each year. In some cases this is unavoidable due to their illness or behavioral problems. But many wonderful pets are abandoned and end up at the shelter, pets that have so much to offer and that have no chance without a great deal of effort by caring humans. Working with animal control, we make available to the public dogs and cats that will be wonderful companion animals and that have been tested, vaccinated and spayed/neutered. The adoption fee for cats is $80; the adoption fee for dogs is $100. All testing, vaccinating and spaying or neutering is included in this cost - a bargain and a good deed, all in one.!

We DESPERATELY need volunteers to help at the shelter!
When an animal is rescued from animal control, it is held at the animal shelter or in a foster home environment. Most of us are already fostering animals and more foster homes will always be needed. The number of pets we can save is now dependent not only on the number of foster homes we can find but also on how many volunteers we have to man the shelter for adoptions. If you would like to become a foster parent or know of someone who would or would like to volunteer at the shelter, please contact us by calling and leaving a message at 361-553-8916 or e-mail us at: cchs@tisd.net

In addition to the adoptions we do at the shelter, PetSmart and mobile adoptions, we also do "breed rescue" work. Dogs often come through the shelter
that are purebred or very nearly so, and the rescue organizations for specific breeds will take them in.
