The Humane Society of Tuolumne County (HSOTC) is dedicated to improving the lives of companion animals in our community and finding permanent and loving adoptive homes for the cats and dogs in our care.

The HSOTC has the designation of a limited intake/no-kill shelter where animals are only euthanized if they are too sick to be treated or too aggressive to be suitable for adoption. The no-kill shelter desgnation rejects euthaniasia as a means of population control and instead works toward reducing the number of anima’ls born through increased spay and neuter programs including low-cost/free help for low income people.

We provide a safe haven for animals in transition, serve as advocates for animals and their people, work to end animal overpopulation and educate the public about compassion and responsibility towards all animals.
