Humane Society of Summit County (HSSC)


Humane Society of Summit County serves our community by caring and advocating for vulnerable animals and enriching the lives of pets and people.


A more compassionate and humane community for animals.

The Humane Society of Summit County is a no-time-limit shelter meaning we do not ever euthanize for time or space. As long as the animal is medically and behaviorally healthy, it remains with us as long as it takes to be adopted. We partner with other animal welfare organizations and specialized rescues to help find loving homes for animals when appropriate.

Core Values


We are the voice of Summit County’s animals. We advocate on behalf of animals for their safety and compassionate care through education, awareness, and humane law enforcement.


We demonstrate kindness and compassion for both the animals and people of our community. Our shelter is a safe haven, our adoption work completes families, and our resources support pet owners.


We strive to set an example for high quality animal care, demonstrate integrity of action, and elevate the cause of animal welfare in our community.


We create a continuum of support for animals through partnerships to rescue animals in need, provide for animals in our care, and advance shared values resulting in a compassionate community.
