Butler County Humane Society : Adopt

The Butler County Humane Society

Proudly serving the people and pets of Butler County, PA for over 100 years



The Butler County Humane Society is a small non-profit animal shelter located in Butler, Pennsylvania. It is our mission to provide care and shelter to the homeless dogs and cats of our county, giving them a safe and compassionate home until they can be placed with a forever family. As a no kill shelter, we do not euthanize to make space, and therefore allow all of our animals to reside within our walls until they find the perfect family for them. As a non-profit, we rely heavily on donations from the general public and aide from our compassionate team of volunteers to keep our doors open and our shelter running.
