Anderson Humane

Bringing people and animals together for good.

For more than fifty years, Anderson Humane has been the leading animal welfare organization in our community. We have been dedicated to creating positive connections between people and animals from day one because animals make us better!

Today, we place more than 4,000 pets into loving homes each year. Our innovative programs make the healing presence of animals available to seniors, veterans, and those in crisis.

We help pet owners provide the best care possible to their dogs, cats, rabbits, turtles, and other animals through free training and resources.

Every year, Anderson Humane cares for more than 3,000 injured and orphaned wild animals. Our classes, nature walks, summer camps, and other programs help people appreciate and preserve these animals and their natural habitat.
