The Sequoia Humane Society is a no-kill shelter whose mission is to be a community leader in reducing pet overpopulation by providing a high-standard of care and through programs such as adoption, spay/neuter and education.
As a no-kill shelter, many of our residents stay with us for several months, even as long as a year or more before they are adopted- but our staff is prepared to stand by an animals side and advocate for them for however long it takes until they meet their new best friend and it is time to part ways at last. Every member of the Sequoia Humane Society whether it be staff, volunteers, or foster parents, are devoted to caring for each of our shelter animals with the respect, love, and compassion they deserve every day. A shelter environment can be stressful for animals, so we work hard to provide the cats and dogs in our care with lots of enriching activities whether it's playtime and socialization in the Flemming field, routine training exercises, or guided pack walks away from the facility to give our dogs a break from the shelter environment- or engaging in cuddles and playtime with enrichment toys and obstacles in the visitation room with our cats. Our philosophy at the Sequoia Humane Society is that animals deserve our love and respect. We aim to place every pet that comes to us in a loving, forever home where they will be welcomed as a family member.
