The Humane Society of Huron Valley has been helping Washtenaw animals for over 100 years. It provides countless animals shelter, food and care and a chance to be taken home by their "furrever" family. It also offers low-cost medical care -- such as low-cost spay and neuter procedures, dog training classes and emergency services -- to pet owners within the county and educational programming for schools and youth.
