About Us



Alachua County Humane Society is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that strives to eliminate euthanasia of healthy, treatable cats and dogs in our community. Most of the animals at our facility come from Alachua County Animal Services, and from the moment we pick them up, our number one priority is to get them well and find them loving homes as quickly as possible.


We are proud to be the lead agency of the Maddie's Pet Rescue of Alachua County.  This coalition has worked with Alachua County Animal Services to reduce the euthanasia rate from over 7,000 per year to under 1,000 per year.  YOUR DONATION can help us get there.

For over 40 years we have been advocates and protectors of the animals in our community by treating, rehabilitating and adopting out all of the wonderful pets we take in. The ACHS staff and volunteers tend to animals with everything from broken bones to debilitating infections, making sure that every measure is taken to make them healthy again. This is a rewarding but very expensive process with an average of $350 spent on each animal we take in. All of the services we provide are only made possible by our members, donors, volunteers, Thrift, Gift & Supply shoppers and corporate support.
