Our History

To fullfill the promise of animals, the Capital Humane Society shelters animals, protects animals and teaches compassion and respect.


Choosing to adopt a homeless pet from Capital Humane Society is a kind act. We
appreciate your support and willingness to offer a lifetime of love to an animal in need.
