Change Lives: Adopt

We have all heard the old saying: “it takes a village to raise a child.” Well it also takes a village to save animals.  Our unwavering dedication to saving animals and continued community support is what keeps the Copper Country Humane Society going.

Animals come from three counties and are provided with a warm place to sleep, food in their bellies, and a safe haven for as long as care is needed.  100-percent of the money needed for vet care, spay/neuter, and medical needs for the 900 animals CCHS cares for annually is raised through monthly fundraising events and private donations. Thank you to our wonderful donors, local businesses, supporters, and volunteers for all that you do. CCHS exists because we come together and make a difference for so many animals!
