Friends of the Shelter

Friends of the Shelter

Through the Humane Society’s Friends of the Shelter (FOS) Program, the Society works closely with the Murray-Calloway County Animal Shelter (which is operated by the Fiscal Court of Calloway County and not the Humane Society) to help support the animals that find their way into the care of the Shelter.

That support comes in many forms. The Society provides the software necessary to the Animal Shelter and Animal Control to support their operations. Volunteers post animals for adoption in the pet supplies section of the local Wal-Mart. The Society helps provide veterinary care for the comfort of the animals and to improve their chance of finding a home. We pull as many pets as possible from the shelter into the Society’s dog and cat adoption programs. We also work to relocate animals into reputable rescue organizations and help with transports to get them on their way.
