Stone County Humane Society, Inc. is a 501 (c)3 organization created in 1999 to find homes for stray, abandoned dogs and cats. After three years, the need for a permanent shelter building became very apparent and fundraising began. Land for a building was donated in 2006. We operated with the help of foster homes for several years. In 2012 we constructed 11 outdoor kennels and 3 isolation pens. Our Cat Cottage was completed in 2013. With the help of a generous donor and money we had raised over several years, construction of the 3,500 sf shelter building began in 2015. In September 2016 the SCHS shelter building was opened.
