The Al-Van Humane Society (AVHS) was founded in 1968 as a non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to providing emergency food and shelter for homeless pets. The AVHS also finds good, adoptive homes for companion animals that can no longer remain with their families. Al-Van provides food and shelter for over 3000 animals yearly, offers community education on humane, responsible and compassionate pet ownership, and is a microchip scan and placement center. The humane society also focuses on helping to reduce the number of stray and unwanted animals in our county by encouraging pet owners to spay and neuter their pets and supporting a spay/neuter program for pets of low-income owners.
