Spay/Neuter Assistance

There is a pet overpopulation problem in Humboldt County, resulting in too many animals and not enough homes to place them in. However, we can prevent the birth of unwanted animals and work toward a day when there are no more homeless pets by spaying and neutering our own cats and dogs, as well as feral cats within your neighborhood.


At its most basic level, humane education is about learning to care for the animals in our homes and communities. It is about fostering kindness, respect and empathy for both human and nonhuman animals, and looking after the environment and its diverse habitats. Unlike science and other academic disciplines, humane education has a philosophical component that strives to establish a sense of responsibility and make the world a better, more humane place.


Pets can run away or get lost. The Sequoia Humane Society wants to help you keep your pets safe. In addition to a collar with identification tags, microchipping your pet will ensure that they are returned to you.
