The Cochise County Humane Society is an organization vitally interested in eliminating the problems of unwanted, abused or neglected companion animals and free roaming cats. Our goals are to promote responsible pet ownership and to reduce pet overpopulation by assisting low-income residents with low-cost spay/neuter programs. We also have a program for emergency veterinarian services. Our cat rescue program includes TNR (trap/neuter/return) spay/neuter, foster care for adoptable kittens, an adoption program through PetSmart and feeding the feral cat communities. We do not operate a shelter but we work with the local shelters in the County. So far this year we’ve provided financial assistance to cat and dog owners for the spay/neuter of approximately 500 animals. On average, we assist 2,200 pet owners with either financial assistance or referrals each year.
Our assistance to the community relies solely on grants and donations from organizations such as the United Way and from individuals. Since we are able to keep our administrative expenses extremely low, over 95% of all funds raised go directly to the care of the animals. All funds raised are used for animals in Cochise County.
