The Humane Society of Wickenburg was incorporated September 7, 2004 by local residents concerned with the welfare of animals in our community. We are a non-profit 501 ( c ) organization as recognized by the IRS and receive no government funding ; fiscally surviving solely through grants and donations. Through the generosity of a local rancher, we housed dogs and cats in a horse barn until the property was condemned for the interim bypass around Wickenburg. We were forced to vacate in May 2006. In June 2007, we purchased an acre of land at the Business Park and have built a brand new 6, 600 square foot facility located at 4000 Industrial Road. We officially opened our doors February 11, 2009. We believe strongly in our Mission and will work hard to enhance the lives of animals. Concurrently, we will strive to enrich the lives of people by joining the two together in permanent, loving relationships while encouraging responsible pet ownership through public awareness and humane education.
