Frequently Asked Questions
Is the Humane Society of Fremont County a no kill shelter?
While we do our best to save as many animals as possible, we have animals euthanized in cases of severe medical issues, dangerous behavior, or overcrowding. Our goal is to find loving homes for all adoptable animals.
At the Humane Society of Fremont County, we strive to provide the best possible care and support for all animals that come through our doors. We are a limited intake shelter, which means that we do not turn animals away based on their age, breed, or medical condition. We work hard to provide each animal with the necessary medical care, socialization, and training to prepare them for adoption.
While we do everything in our power to find homes for all adoptable animals, unfortunately, some animals may not be suitable for adoption due to their medical condition, aggressive behavior, or other circumstances. In these cases, euthanasia may be the kindest and most humane option to prevent further suffering.
We are committed to reducing the number of animals that are euthanized and increasing the number of animals that are adopted into loving homes. We work closely with other rescue organizations and strive to provide education and resources to promote responsible pet ownership and reduce pet overpopulation.
