Our Vision

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

Public Education

UCHS is active in the community teaching courses on animal care and welfare to both children and adults!
