There are young, middle and older aged dogs. We have a large variety of cats. All of our animals have one thing in common, each is hoping for a permanent and loving home. We can help you when you are ready to add a cat or dog into your family. Visit the Howard County Humane Society. Every potential adopter must meet certain requirements prior to adopting. The Howard County Humane Society does reserve the right to deny any application if requirements are not met. Take time and try to find the type of animal who will match your lifestyle and wants. A dog's size, exercise requirements, friendliness, assertiveness and compatibility with children should all figure into your decision, after all you're choosing a pal who will be with you for 10, 15 or even more years, and the Humane Society wants you to enjoy those years to the fullest.
