Our mission is to promote the well-being of animals through
SAVE: Spay/Neuter, Adopt, Volunteer and Educate.
The Woodford Humane Society provides extraordinary care for hundreds of homeless pets every day. Our average placement rate is 93% - three times the national average. With no government funding, we are completely dependent on private contributions to continue to provide excellent care to our pets.
Adoptable animals are held for as long as health, behavior
and space permit. We never set a time limit for adoptable animals to find a new
home -- in fact, many animals have remained here a year or more while awaiting
their new home. Cageless cat rooms and spacious play yards for our dogs keep our
pets happy while they await adoption.
2015 was a
successful year! Our placement rate
continues to be roughly 93%, in an industry where 25% is seen as a success. We
receive no government funding at any level, and are completely dependent on
contributions to provide the level of care for which we are known. This year we
expect to spend more than $525,000 for regular operating expenses, which
includes medical care, housing, and staff support for the animals. Our SAVE
Matching Gift & Endowment Fund provides donors with an opportunity to
double their gift, because three generous sponsors have pledged a combined
$55,000 in funds to match gifts made to this fund in 2016.
