The Athens County Humane Society is committed to promoting better care and compassion for animals and reducing abandonment and euthanasia of healthy animals by providing spay and neuter assistance and education.

The Athens County Humane Society is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. We are run entirely by volunteers. Our support comes from fundraising, donations and memberships.

Services we provide include:

  • low-cost spay/neuter options and financial assistance with spay/neuter

  • pediatric and early spay/neuter options for high-risk pets

  • resources to help find safe and secure homes for unwanted pets

  • education on the importance of spay/neuter in reducing the population of homeless pets

  • education on responsible, compassionate pet care and other animal welfare issues

We do not have a physical location or shelter. Instead, we rely on a network of fosters. Unfortunately, unwanted cats far exceed our network. You can be part of an important solution to a growing issue by becoming a foster and spaying and neutering your pets. Encourage your family and friends to do so too! Want to be a foster? Click here. ACHS works to prevent the illegal abandonment of companion animals by offering low-cost spay and neuter options. The only permanent solution is prevention.

Thanks to our partners and donors for their support
