About Us

mission Statement

" The Barry County Humane Society, a non-profit organization,

believing.that all living creatures have the right to live free 

of suffering, is dedicated to the prevention of cruelty and promotion of 

humane treatment." 


image6

With this one basic thought in mind, we have been working  since 1959 to improve the lives of animals in Barry County. Our focus is not limited to pets, but rather encompasses all animals: farm animals and wild creatures as well. 


We believe animals are a vital part of the very essence of what makes life worthwhile. Our pets add so much to our lives and much can be learned from interacting with animals.  We believe all animals deserve our respect.


We believe mankind has a responsibility to treat all living creatures with kindness and mercy. By demonstrating such action to the children in our community, we will be helping to create future adults with more compassion towards animals as well as towards their fellow man.     

 

We are proud to say we are Accredited with the Better Business Bureau

Also, Registered with 

Network for Good  and Guide Star
