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.

Giving Tuesday

This year, we are asking for help with medical costs for our shelter animals. Many of the hundreds of pets we will care for in 2020 will come to us needing something “extra.” Whether that’s a dental and the extraction of multiple teeth in a senior dog, or surgery for a fractured hip in a young kitten who thought a car’s engine compartment was a cozy spot for a nap on a cold winter’s day, we want to have the resources on hand to say YES when these special animals find their way into our shelter.
