UCHS is a private nonprofit organization with a mission of connecting people with animals and enriching lives.
Our vision is to be a compassionate organization that places every adoptable animal into a forever home and effectively advocates for the humane treatment of animals. We coordinate programs and services for the people and animals of our community that increase public awareness and education.
We never set a time limit on any animal. We currently operate a 6,800 sq ft facility and successfully place 95+% of the 1,200 animals in our care each year; we place 100% of the adoptable animals!
Care for Animals Waiting for Adoption
UCHS spays/neuters, microchip, temperament test and vet check 100% of the animals that we adopt to the public, as well as providing food, shelter, interaction and routine care while they await their new home.
Prior to adoption, each animal:
- Has been examined by our veterinarian
- Has been spayed/neutered
- Is on heartworm preventative
- Is on flea preventative
- Has been treated for worms
- Has been vaccinated
- Has been microchipped
UCHS is active in the community teaching courses on animal care and welfare to both children and adults! Click here

Barn/Feral Cat Clinic
As part of our mission, the Union County Humane Society provides low-cost spay/neuter services for barn and feral cats residing in Union County.
To sign up for the Barn & Feral Cat Clinic, please click here
to schedule your date. Please note that we usually book at least a month out in advance. Because of the large number of no-shows, we now require payment in full at the time you schedule your appointment.
Every cat spayed or neutered at UCHS will receive a rabies shot, unless you have written proof of a shot given by a vet.
All cats seen at the barn/feral cat clinic will have their left ear tipped, to the discretion of our vet, in order to indicate that they have been spayed/neutered.
Total cost is $65 for spays (female) and $55 for neuters (males).
WHY DO WE EAR TIP BARN/FERAL CLINIC CATS?
- Ear tipping offers a universal sign that free-roaming cats have been sterilized.
- Ear tipping is completely safe and is performed under general anesthesia.
- Ear tipping provides immediate visual identification, which alerts animal caretakers, animal control, and the public which free-roaming cats have been spayed/neutered.
