Emergency Boarding & Pet Safekeeping Services

When the worst case scenario happens, The Humane Society is there to provide support with our Pet Safekeeping and Emergency Boarding programs.  Both our Safekeeping and Emergency Boarding programs require a referral and are subject to space availability. The Safekeeping program at The Humane Society is designed to provide safe refuge for pets displaced by domestic violence.  Our Safekeeping program provides up to 30 days of care, including spay or neuter surgery and vaccines.  Emergency Boarding whether due to fire, flood or emergency hospitalization provides up to 10 days of care.
