The Humane Society of Kent County Maryland, Inc is a private, charitable 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are not affiliated with any other animal welfare organization, locally or nationally. Though we do provide Animal Control services for Kent County, we are not a County agency. Only a third of our budget is funded by the County; the rest comes from fees for service and private donations from generous citizens. Our mission is to prevent the unnecessary pain and suffering of domestic animals in our community and to promote satisfying and responsible relationships between people and domestic companion animals through community involvement and education.
HSKC operates an open admission animal shelter and welcomes every animal in need that we can legally accept. As an open admission shelter, we take in many animals who may not be immediate candidates for adoption. Whenever possible, our staff and foster parents work with these animals to rehabilitate them and qualify them for adoption to good homes. There is no set limit to the length of time an animal can remain a candidate for adoption. As long as we have space, and the pet appears to be able to maintain good physical and emotional health in our kennel environment (or foster home), the pet will remain in our program.
Every animal, however long it remains in our adoptions program, is guaranteed a clean, safe, comfortable space, nutritious food and fresh water, medical supervision and, when needed, care and supplies, as well as interaction with volunteers who groom, exercise, and socialize with them.
