The North County Humane Society is a division of Action for Animals' Rights (AFAR), founded in 1977. We are a "no-kill" cat adoption center/shelter. Our mission is to reduce pet overpopulation and to promote responsible pet ownership through spay/neuter and trap, neuter and release programs; provide shelter, care and socialization opportunities for domestic cats awaiting permanent homes; and advocate for the welfare and humane treatment of all animals through education efforts in our communities.

If you are looking to support a great organization, we could really use your help.

Hi Heide: The very nice Rachel at Cause4Paws Thrift Shop funded those microchips! She is doing more than her part to help cats and dogs in our area. Thanks for tagging us so we could see pretty Sasha. Love that eye patch.
