Adams County Humane Society
ACHS is a small shelter 100% run by donations, adoptions and fundraisers. We do not euthanize for space, no healthy well disposition animals are ever euthanized . We need your support to continue our important work of helping the animals & people of Adams County & surrounding areas. ACHS takes great pride in the care we give our animals on their way to loving forever homes. We can house up to about 30 cats at a time and we have 20 indoor kennels for dogs (3 1/2 by 9 feet). We have 16 large outside play areas for the dog’s so on nice days we partner them up to go outside and play. We also have 1 room we call the "Puppy Room" that is away from all the other animals and is used for a dog about to have puppies, already nursing or a litter that is too young for adoption. Before animals are adopted the dogs are spayed /neutered, give their rabies, distemper, kennel cough and k9 Influenza vaccinations, de-wormed, Heartworm tested, on heart worm preventative, flea/ tick preventative and they get a microchip. We test the cats to make sure they are negative for FIV/Leukemia, give rabies & distemper vaccinations, de-wormed and have a microchip as well. We now are in need of help to keep our doors open as we have to replace the mound septic system which will cost anywhere betweem 16,000 and 20,000 dollars. It will be hard to keep up with veterinarian costs, shelter, and food costs.
