Every year hundreds of dogs and cats are rescued from being neglected, mistreated or abandoned in Daviess County, Missouri. Our group hopes to help find good, loving homes for these animals.
We also need to find foster homes that are willing to care for an animal
 until they can be placed in their forever homes.

We also want to help educate the community about responsible pet care
 and spaying and neutering your animals.

Please donate or volunteer and help show your support.
Thank You!

Through the Daviess County Humane Society, you can spay and neuter your dogs and cats for an extremely reduced rate. Please contact us for more information. We need to end how many animals end up homeless. Please spay and neuter.

We are not a shelter. We depend on foster homes to continue our rescue efforts.
We desperately need people who are willing to foster a dog temporarily
until a permanent home is found. Please help.

Who We Are
Daviess County Humane Society has been operating since Dec. 2009. We are dedicated to rescuing animals who have been abused, neglected or abandoned. We want to help those who are unwanted or mistreated. We want to raise community awareness in proper care for domestic animals.

"You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late."

He is a gelding. He has had a Coggins test and is up to date
with all shots.


Hi!  My name is Zeus and I just chose my new family through the Daviess County Humane Society.  Most people think that animals like me have problems or attitude issues, but the truth is that most of us are given up because our former owners are having financial problems, or they are going through a divorce, or moving and just can’t take us with them.  My new family is so grateful to have me in their life. I am very fortunate that I have such a great new home. I owe my life to the volunteers that helped me in my time of need. Please visit the Daviess County Humane Society and check out some of my friends who are waiting to adopt you!

Cold Weather Tips

Brrrr…it’s cold outside!  The following guidelines will help you protect your companion animals when the mercury dips.

   1. Keep your cat inside. Outdoors, felines can freeze, become lost or be stolen, injured or killed. Cats who are allowed to stray are exposed to infectious diseases, including rabies, from other cats, dogs and wildlife.

   2. During the winter, outdoor cats sometimes sleep under the hoods of cars. When the motor is started, the cat can be injured or killed by the fan belt. If there are outdoor cats in your area, bang loudly on the car hood before starting the engine to give the cat a chance to escape.

   3. Never let your dog off the leash on snow or ice, especially during a snowstorm—dogs can lose their scent and easily become lost. More dogs are lost during the winter than during any other season, so make sure yours always wears an ID tag.

   4. Thoroughly wipe off your dog's legs and stomach when he comes in out of the sleet, snow or ice. He can ingest salt, antifreeze or other potentially dangerous chemicals while licking his paws, and his paw pads may also bleed from snow or encrusted ice.

   5. Never shave your dog down to the skin in winter, as a longer coat will provide more warmth. When you bathe your dog in the colder months, be sure to completely dry him before taking him out for a walk. Own a short-haired breed? Consider getting him a coat or sweater with a high collar or turtleneck with coverage from the base of the tail to the belly. For many dogs, this is regulation winter wear.

   6. Never leave your dog or cat alone in a car during cold weather. A car can act as a refrigerator in the winter, holding in the cold and causing the animal to freeze to death.

   7. Puppies do not tolerate the cold as well as adult dogs, and may be difficult to housebreak during the winter. If your puppy appears to be sensitive to the weather, you may opt to paper-train him inside. If your dog is sensitive to the cold due to age, illness or breed type, take him outdoors only to relieve himself.

   8. Does your dog spend a lot of time engaged in outdoor activities? Increase his supply of food, particularly protein, to keep him—and his fur—in tip-top shape.

   9. Like coolant, antifreeze is a lethal poison for dogs and cats. Be sure to thoroughly clean up any spills from your vehicle, and consider using products that contain propylene glycol rather than ethylene glycol. Visit the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center more information.

  10. Make sure your companion animal has a warm place to sleep, off the floor and away from all drafts. A cozy dog or cat bed with a warm blanket or pillow is perfect.
