LET’S GET STARTED
Every year at CHS, we adopt out and save over 500+ lives. The care and time necessary to love those animals and provide a safe harbor for them, is numerous. That’s where our wonderful volunteers create their biggest impact.
YOU have the ability to enrich lives, socialize animals who have never had a safe home, love both dogs and cats, and help find them a forever home.

AMAZON WISH LIST
On an average day at Cherryland Humane Society, we provide care for many dogs and cats at a cost of nearly $1,200. Your dollars pay for food, medical attention, vaccinations — all the things needed to care for these animals until we can unite them with their fur-ever families.
