About Us

Founded in 1989, the Steele County Humane Society is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization, comprised of one paid employee and approximately twenty-five community volunteers currently.

Currently, the SCHS does not have a shelter.  Our animals live in foster homes where they are loved, socialized and provided all veterinary services, including neutering and spaying until they are ready for their forever homes.
