ABOUT THE WATERTOWN HUMANE SOCIETY

How we help

The Watertown Humane Society provides care to those greatest in need including animals of Watertown and the surrounding communities. We contract with the following municipalities: City of Watertown, Town of Watertown, City of Waterloo, Town of Milford, Town of Ixonia, Town of Concord, Village of Clyman (dogs only), and Village of Lowell (dogs only). We give new beginnings to over 800 dogs, cats and small animals a year.

 

Our shelter helps all animals in need regardless of age, health or background. We believe every pet deserves a home and take great pride in the exceptional care that is given to each and every pet while they wait for their new family. Because of this, we save over ninety percent of all animals that come into our shelter.
