“Your Hometown Shelter”
Each year, we rescue, care for, or re-home almost 7,000 animals in our community. Our goal is always to provide immediate care for the animals under our roof and to create a better future for all of St. Lucie County’s animals. No animal is ever turned away !
The Humane Society of St. Lucie County is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing compassionate care and safe shelter for homeless animals and education to the community on responsible pet ownership.
Who we are
- We are a nationally accredited 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation which depends upon the community, businesses and individuals for support
- We have been in existence since 1956
- Volunteers, a board of directors and 28 employees have accepted the challenge of caring for the nearly 10,000 animals we receive each year from the animal control agencies and residents of our county
- We have contractual agreements with the three county municipalities: Port St. Lucie, Fort Pierce and unincorporated St. Lucie County
- We advocate responsible companion animal care and spaying and neutering
- Education is an integral part of our Mission Statement
- The Humane Society of St. Lucie County with the Florida Animal Friend Grant of $25,000 was able to perform 800 spay and neuter procedures for a low cost to pet owners in St. Lucie County.
HSSLC –Some upcoming events are Pet Pictures with Santa on Dec 5th and our biggest event of the year “The 12th Annual Fur Ball” which will be held on March 19th at the Pelican Yacht Club. We have just kicked off a Save Our Shelter campaign with a goal of raising $500,000 to help cover the costs of our fee-for-services contract being cut by the municipalities. Every year we take in six to seven thousand animals a year and adopt out close to 2,000. We perform roughly 3,400 spay/neuters at our low cost wellness clinic at our new Port St. Lucie Facility.
