About Us



The Humane Society of Bay County was formed in November 1984 by a group of concerned citizens who recognized a need within our community.  Since that time, the organization has acted as the animal advocate in our community.  Your support continues to be our inspiration as we look forward to a future of improved welfare for all animals.

The Humane Society is a separate entity from Bay County Animal Control;   The Humane Society was a source of significant funding for building the Bay County Animal Control facility.

All of your donations go towards our many programs, including:

  • Spay/Neuter for adoptable animals
  • Cat & Dog foster program
