Welcome to the Humane Society of Mason County
Shelter Building Campaign.We are thrilled to be able to share with you our news! In January of 2015, we purchased a five acre parcel very close to our office in the Theler Center. The property is between Belfair and Allyn, on North Mason School Road.
The land is perfect for us as it is very level with a nice cleared center, surrounded by large trees. We will eventually have walking trails throughout the five acres for shelter dog walking and community events.
We will build in stages, as building a shelter that will benefit the community for years to come is expensive. Stage one has already begun. We will be putting in our well and electricity soon, with a septic system to follow.
We are looking for a gently used manufactured building that will allow us to move our offices from the Theler Center and spending our fundraising efforts on the shelter portion of this project.
We are excited to finally get this undertaking started. It has been many years in the making and we welcome any volunteers interested in helping us raise funds or contribute building expertise toward this goal.

Highlights of 2016.2016 was a busy year for HSMC! Here are just some of the highlights of our events, milestones reached and services provided to Mason County by our volunteers, friends and supporters:
Our property development is coming along great; the transformer was moved, the septic design is complete and the well will be installed soon (and pump for the well was also paid for by a generous supporter, thank you!). HSMC has also adopted a part of State Hwy 3 between the Airport and Lake Flora Road to keep the highway free of litter – check out our sign next time you drive this route! We have set up a limited cat foster care program, an emergency animal care fund, and assisted with our first TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) of seven cats from Shelton.
We also received our first grant ($2,000) earmarked for spay and neuter (S/N), and spayed and neutered 153 dogs and cats for the community! We provided transport to the S/N clinics for six families who were unable to make the trip on their own, including two families who paid for their S/N surgeries but were unable to make the transports at the required hour. We fostered, provided emergency veterinary care, spayed/neutered and rehomed 6 kittens, assisted with transport and vaccines for an additional 12 kittens who were rehomed via our partners, Paws Of Bainbridge and Kitsap Humane Society, and rehomed 8 adult cats via our partners, Rescue Every Dog and Paws Of Bainbridge Island. We provided emergency veterinary service to three low income seniors (Emergency Animal Care Fund). We also rescued, provided medical care and rehomed via our partner, Adopt A Pet, one very wonderful 8 year old male pitbull who had spent his entire life on a chain. We also provided 837 pounds of dog food and 413 pounds of cat food, not to mention all the treats, flea product, shampoo, collars, leashes and toys that were given to pets in need.
We also moved out office to a great new location in Allyn, did very well at all of our fundraising events (including our annual Sails 'n Tails auction, Lakeland Village Rummage Sales, All You Can Eat events at Casper's, just to name a few!). We also expanded our presence on social media and can be found on both Facebook and Twitter.
We have done great things in 2016, and will do even better in 2017! Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers, friends and supporters that make it all possible and for your love and help for our furry residents of Mason County!
