Calaveras Humane Society in Calaveras County, California


Our Mission

Our goal is to promote an excellent quality of life for the animals of Calaveras County. We have a small staff and a dedicated volunteer team. In addition, Calaveras Humane Society involves the community in achieving our mission. We care about the destiny and welfare of companion animals and their owners.

We provide numerous programs and services. We offer spay and neuter discount vouchers to low-income Calaveras residents. Our vet bill assistance program helps local, low-income senior citizens with veterinary costs. The CHS Pet Food Bank helps folks keep their pets even when the budget is tight. Explore our website to find out about our many services.

Our brand-new shelter in Angels Camp, California is now open. Please stop by and pay us a visit, even if you’re not planning to adopt a new animal companion. We have lots for you to see!

With the help of our community, we turn good ideas into positive action.

Neo natal kittens

Volunteer Foster Homes

Our treasured volunteers are one of the main reasons we’re able to say YES to so many pets in need. These four newborn nuggets came into our care Friday and were immediately picked up by a foster family.

They know what’s ahead in the coming days and weeks: sleepless nights, round-the-clock feedings, and a whole lot of work. But they took them in happily, and now each of these neonatal kittens has a chance at becoming someone’s beloved feline friend someday. ♥️🐾
