OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
The Tri-Lakes Humane Society is a local non-profit organization that provides shelter for lost, abandoned, and unwanted animals while actively seeking loving, permanent homes for them. We give every animal who comes to us as much time as funding and space allow to find a new home. We advocate the humane treatment of all animals, and each animal adopted from our Society is spayed or neutered according to state law. We encourage spaying and neutering of all domestic animals through educational programs within the community, and we encourage other opportunities for interaction between The Humane Society, its animals and the community.
Our primary goal is a 100% adoption rate for all adoptable animals who find their way to our shelter. In order to achieve this goal, we will strive to attract adequate funding to assure our shelter's ongoing operation. We will also make every effort to educate the public about the necessity of spaying and neutering their pets to reduce the number of unwanted animals in our area and surrounding communities. Now, working with the SAAFhouse Spay/Neuter Clinic in Springfield, all animals adopted from our facility are altered. We feel this is a huge asset to our community and to the adopters that choose our shelter to find their new best friend.
WHY WE SUCCEED:
One reason our adoption rate is three times the national average is that we do not wait for the public to come to us. We take our homeless animals to the public.
