Our building is closed to the public due to the Covid-19 outbreak. We already have almost 100 dogs and cats in our small shelter right now. With new animal intakes coming in everyday, we need foster caregivers who can commit to fostering a dog or cat to help prevent overcrowding. Becoming a foster for us is fast and easy. Please let us know if you are interested and we will be happy to email or fax the foster form. Please check out our website to see if these is a particular animal you are interested in fostering! We will provide the food and other needed items, as well as be available to answer any questions or concerns! Feel free to call or send an email expressing your interest to

Adopt A Pet

Now, of course, you can’t adopt a pet through the website, but you can view and read about all of our animals in the Adopt A Pet section of our site. Our database is updated daily, so you can view the pets that are available for adoption, and not the ones that have already been adopted.

If you see one you want to meet, give us a call, or come visit us. You may also fill out the adoption application online for advance approval.


The Bainbridge Humane Society accepts volunteers Monday-Saturday starting at 11AM and ending at 3:30PM. Volunteers 16 years of age and older do not need a parent or guardian present, but any person under the age of 16 must have a parent or guardian present with them the entire time they are volunteering. Please wear clothing that you would not mind if it got dirty and closed toe shoes. You will be asked to read and sign our volunteer waiver and provide contact information.


Old Timers Need Help ASAP!!!

Throughout our site you will see some of our beloved animals labeled as “Old Timers”. This does not mean they are old in age, just that they have been in our shelter longer than others and their time is running out.

We keep all of our homeless friends as long as we possibly can but due to increasing numbers of pets being left in our care we are simply running out of room. Our old timers still deserve the most loving, caring homes possible, but we have reduced their adoption fees in hopes that someone will come along and give them a second chance at a happy life.

Please consider adopting an adult dog or cat and know that by doing so you are saving a life and gaining a lifelong friend. So, take a look through our adoptable pets and read the stories of our old timers and maybe you will be able help out an animal in need.
