Humane Society Pet Items for Fines Drive

Adopt a petThe Stark County Humane Society is a private, charitable organization. It is not a county agency and does not receive funding from the United Way. Its continued success depends upon the support of the community through membership fees, gifts, and contributions. The shelter is open to the public daily except for holidays, and takes in sick and injured cats and dogs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
