The Flood of 2011 forced the Humane Society to evacuate our 2 Jackson Street Binghamton shelter and temporarily suspend operations.  All the animals have been relocated and are safe.  We are now working on the first phase of the recovery plan in an effort to return to full operations as soon as possible.

We are aware the shelter sustained damage and have received preliminary reports of 4 feet of water in the building.  The extent of the damage cannot be assessed until we are able to return to the building.

When we evacuated we were unable to take food or supplies and are in need of the following:

  • Pedigree adult complete nutrition dog food
  • Canned dog food
  • Purina kitten chow
  • Purina cat chow
  • Canned cat food
  • Cat litter
  • Paper towels
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Laundry Soap
  • Dish Soap
  • Large heavy duty garbage bags
  • Towels and blankets
  • Monetary donations are also needed.

All supplies can be taken to 1946 NYS  Rt.12, in the town of Chenango (Next to Allen Veterinary Hospital) where we are temporarily housing the animals. Allen Veterinary Hospital is assisting us with housing some of our animals which is allowing us to provide a more comfortable environment for all of them. We are grateful beyond words!

If you have any questions, please send an email to bhumanesoc@aol.com.  We will respond as quickly as we can.

The Humane Society would like to thank everyone for their concern and generosity while we, like much of  our community, rebound from this event.

Thank you.
Karen Matson
Executive Director

    My mom and I dropped off a bunch of cat and dog food today, and cat litter. I was hoping to speak to someone about donating my time as well. I know you’re very busy with all that is going on, but if there is anything else you need please let me know.
