About Anderson Humane
Anderson Humane is a
resource for pet owners, providing information and essential
services to provide better care for their pets. Services such as
Low-Cost Vaccination, Dental, and Spay/Neuter Clinics offer
affordable veterinary care options, preventing owners from having
to give up their pets simply because they can’t afford care. On the
horizon are additional programs to keep pets in homes, such as a
pet food pantry, affordable pet training options, and temporary
housing for pets when families are in crisis.
Anderson Humane is committed to care that includes all
animals, including wildlife rescue and rehabilitation, housing, and
care education for “little critters” (rabbits, turtles, etc.),
resources for parrots and other pet birds, and horse rescue,
rehabilitation, and adoption.
