Humane Society Of Sonoma County

A Safe Haven for Animals – We ensure every animal receives protection, compassion, love and care.
Serving our community since 1931, the Humane Society of Sonoma County is a donor-supported safe haven for animals. We’re dedicated to bringing people and companion animals together for a lifetime of love. The animals in our care receive medical treatment (including spay/neuter surgery), training services, and adoption assistance.

We believe that no effort is too great when a life is at stake. With your help, we give hope to every adoptable animal. The Humane Society of Sonoma County is a no-kill shelter with two locations in Sonoma County; our primary Center for Animals is located at 5345 Hwy 12 West in Santa Rosa. Our Healdsburg shelter is located at 555 Westside Road in Healdsburg.

Sonoma County Wildlife

Our Mission
Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue is dedicated to: the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife; the promotion, understanding, appreciation, protection and conservation of wildlife through both our Educational Outreach Programs and our advocacy efforts. Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue also makes charitable contributions to animal rescue and rehabilitation organizations as authorized by the Board.

RESCUE
Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue has a team of trained staff and volunteers available to rescue wildlife seven days a week. Using gloves, nets and other safety gear, we are able to safely catch wildlife ranging from hawks and owls to raccoons and coyotes.

REHABILITATE
We provide specialized medical care to over 1,500 animals a year. With the help of our Good Samaritan team of veterinarians, we are able to perform surgeries, nutritional care, detailed exams and much more to give these animals the best chance of survival.

RELEASE
On average, Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue releases 70% of the patients who come to us for help. The majority return to where they were found. In certain cases, animals are released to special release sites provided by generous members of our community who love animals and want to share their property with them.

Angel’s Wish

We are cat specialists! Over 99% of the animals we help are cats. In 2019, we took in 764 cats and 1 dog from nearly 20 different counties in Wisconsin (and a few from other states). Many are kittens found by Good Samaritans or by volunteers doing TNR (trap-neuter-release) of outdoor cats. Others are surrendered by owners, while a few are found strays that are not reclaimed. And whenever we can, we work with humane societies and rescue groups in Wisconsin to transfer their animals to us where they will have a better chance of being adopted. In 2019, we adopted out 694 cats and 1 dog. Angel’s Wish is considered “limited-admission” as we limit the number of animals we take in to the number we can care for and that will likely be adoptable. We are also considered “no-kill” or “adoption guarantee” as we humanely euthanize animals who are suffering with severe behavior and/or medical conditions, but never for space.

Safe Hands Rescue

Our work focuses on rescuing and rehoming dogs from overcrowded, high intake, low adoption shelters where there is otherwise little hope. We also work to solve the homeless pet population problem where it starts.

We partner with the shelters our rescue dogs come from and work to help them and the surrounding community.

If you support our work, this is what your love, energy and passion create and make possible.

This is the heartache. This is the joy. This is hope. This is A Light in the Darkness.
