 MHS Values

Compassion:  We care deeply about the animal and human lives we touch, showing not only kindness but empathy and grace in every interaction.
Excellence: We provide an exceptional level of service and expertise for our customers, colleagues and the community.
Trust: We are open and honest in our communications and consistent in living our values.
Serenity:  We provide peace of mind to the community as we care for the animals entrusted to us.
Community:  We build strong relationships with the individual people we serve and partner with other organizations to strengthen the social fabric of our region.


Our mission is 100% funded by the generosity of people within the communities we support. Contrary to what many mistakenly believe, MHS receives NO FUNDING for our shelter operations when you make a donation to national animal welfare organizations such as ASPCA, The Humane Society of the United States. Nor do we receive funding from any national, state or local government agency.
