Howling Good Time image

A special Thank You to everyone who brought the much needed items from our fall wish list to the 2018 Purrfect Evening for a Howling Good Time. For every 3 items donated each donor was entered to win a $1,000 cash prize. These are items the Stark County Humane Society uses every day. The full list of items we need can be found to the right.

We would also like to thank our sponsors of our “Purrfect Evening For A Howling Good Time” fund raiser. Sponsors are vital to our success of raising funds for the all weather walking path being installed on shelter grounds. Thanks to those listed below. As you can see there is room for more!

Our Mission

We "speak for those who cannot speak for themselves" and with the support of our members, employees and volunteers, we hope to do so for many years to come.

The Stark County Humane Society is a private, charitable organization.  We are not a county agency and we do not receive funding from the United Way.  Our continued existence and success depends upon the support of the community through membership fees, gifts, and contributions.

Our shelter is open to the public every day except holidays.  During 2017 approximately 27,421 individuals visited the shelter.  Our educational and pet therapy programs continue to thrive throughout our community.  Our service for the sick and injured stray dogs and cats remains available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.  One of our top priorities remains our investigation of cruelty to animals in our county.
