Who We Are
Kenosha County Humane Society dba Safe Harbor Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that serves the Kenosha County area. Safe Harbor takes in nearly 3800 animals each year and places the majority of these animals into good homes.
Our mission is to house, care for, and find loving homes for animals orphaned, abused and neglected in Kenosha County.
Incorporated in 1916 as a boarding facility, Safe Harbor has taken on many forms. From a boarding facility, to a city pound attached to the fire department, to a humane society serving all of Kenosha County, Safe Harbor Humane Society has grown with our community, acting as a open admission shelter devoted to saving the lives of as many pets as possible. Our current site is nearly 30 years old and holds 100 cats and 42 dogs. In the last few years, we were fortunate enough to add a veterinary suite to the building and hired a veterinarian in 2011.
Why We're Here
Our purpose is to improve the care and treatment of animals in our community. We work to find homes for thousands of unwanted and abandoned animals each year and help to reunite lost pets with their families. We firmly believe that the lives of animals will be greatly improved through aggressive spay/neuter programs, increased adoptions and public education.
