Cherryland Humane Society is a no-kill, nonprofit organization founded in 1956. They aim to provide a safe harbor for the animals entrusted to them as they strive to find responsible, loving, and permanent homes.
Volunteers play a vital role in all that Cherryland Humane Society can accomplish, so if you’d like to give back to shelter animals, they’d love to have you.
