The mission of the Humane Society is to secure permanent and loving homes for our Humane Society pets
The perfect place to get your new family pet.
Here are a few facts about the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast:
Is the Treasure Coast Humane Society a “no kill” shelter?
No, we are an “open admission” shelter. We will not turn away any animal. Only animals with health issues or who pose a threat to people/other animals will be euthanized. There is no limit to the length of time an animal can be housed by HSTC. Stray animals brought in by Animal Control must be legally held for five days before they can be adopted. “No kill” shelters accept healthy, adoptable animals and, due to limited space, refer less adoptable animals to other facilities.
Is Treasure Coast Humane Society affiliated with any national organizations or the county?
No, we are a private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We depend on donations from friends like you who share our commitment to our region’s pets. We receive no financial support from large, national animal welfare organizations or from local, state or national government agencies. We contract with Martin County Animal Care and Control to house stray animals brought in by their officers.
Where is the Humane Society shelter and adoption center located?
We are located off Route 714 in Palm City (one block from the Turnpike) at 4100 SW Leighton Farm Avenue. Come and visit the shelter or walk your dog and meditate in the Charlie and Audrey Faust Memorial Garden. Our hours of operation are 10:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Saturday with extended hours to 7:00 pm on Wednesday. On Sunday, we are open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. You can call us at 772-223-8822.
What is the cost of adopting an animal?
At $85, adoption is a bargain! Not only do you get a new family member, your pet is spayed/neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated, temperament tested, dewormed, flea bathed and dipped and gets a health check. Cats also get feline AIDS/leukemia tested. PLUS, you’ll receive a bag of Hill’s Science Diet food and one (1) month free pet insurance!
Is it really necessary to spay/neuter?
The problem of pet overpopulation cannot be exaggerated. It is estimated that an unaltered female cat and her offspring can produce over 420,000 kittens in 7 years. An unspayed female dog, her mate and their offspring can produce up to 67,000 puppies in 6 years. All animals adopted from HSTC are required by law to be spayed/neutered. We offer low cost spay/neuter surgery aboard our mobile surgical unit, the AniMobile.
