The Brown County Humane Society opened the  Small Animal Adoption Center in 2017 to house cats and some small animals.  We do not have our own facilities to house horses and the Small Animal Facility is limited in size. Therefore we rely on community support through foster care.  The Humane Society does have an animal shelter to house dogs, however many dogs are in need of a foster family to care for them until they find a forever home.  Many of these animals need medical and emotional care. 

Please call us at 937-378-2210 for small Animals or 937-378-3457 for dogs and larger animals.  You can also email us at, or visit the Brown County Animal (Dog) Shelter  or Small Animal  Adoption  Center if you can help foster our animals.

Our cats/kittens can be seen  at our  Small Animal Adoption Center at 422 Lincoln Ave Georgetown OH or call 937-378-2210 for more information.  All of our horses and some cats are in foster care.  Dogs may be seen at the Brown County Animal (Dog) Shelter in Georgetown, OH.

Since assuming management responsibilities of the Animal (Dog) Shelter in November of 2011, the shelter's euthanasia rate has dropped to one of the lowest in the State of Ohio. The dedication of our employees and volunteers is unparalleled in the business. We use off site adoption events and social media to promote the adoption of our dogs and to make room for more homeless animals.
