October 28, 2020 UPDATE in regards to COVID-19

Because we care about our community and want to help stop the spread of the virus, protecting our community, staff, guests and volunteers... we are taking steps as a precaution due to the COVID-19 Risk dial for the area being at "High". Stronger social distancing restrictions will be in place, meaning one person or family unit at a time will be allowed in the facility and we will be going by appointments during our normally regular business hours. An application for adoption is available on our website at www.mccookhumanesociety.com under the tab dog or cat, please indicate who you are interested in adopting. Our front door will be locked during our otherwise normal open hours, you may knock and if we do not have an otherwise scheduled appointment, or someone else in the facility, you will be able to come in and view our pets available for adoption.
Masks are mandatory. We ask that you do not come into the facility if you have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive with COVID-19, or if you have traveled to a known high risk area within the last 14 days, if you are at high risk, or if you are showing any symptoms of the virus. We appreciate your continuing support and understanding during these unusual times and wish everyone a happy, enjoyable and safe experience while visiting our facility.


The McCook Humane Society was formed in 1983 by a group of citizens concerned by the housing that was being used by the City of McCook to house and care for stray animals. The first efforts focused on finding new homes for the strays and making their stay a bit more comfortable while impounded.

Through a lot of diligent efforts, donations of money and many hours of volunteer labor the Animal Shelter was built on South Street and a lease agreement with the City of McCook was established.

McCook Humane Society Animal Shelter

The shelter has been improved through the years and is a facility to be proud of. These improvements have been possible through donations and other fund raising projects throughout the years. The effort continues to insure that neglected and unwanted animals of the area are taken care of and new homes provided.

MHS is a nonprofit organization supported by voluntary donations and remains an independent organization dedicated to finding permanent, loving homes for abused, neglected, and abandoned animals in Southwest Nebraska and Northwest Kansas.

Three Memory Boards are on display at the shelter.

  • One has the names and or businesses that have been donors or volunteers that have been instrumental in the construction and continuing operation of the Animal Shelter.
  • Another is in memory of deceased animal lovers that have either left monies in their wills or instructed their loved ones to donate to the humane society.
  • A third has the names of beloved pets that the owners have given memorials in their name to be remembered.

Visitors and volunteers are always welcome. The McCook Humane Society Animal Shelter is located at 100 South St. The hours open to the public are Monday - Friday 2:00-5:00 pm. Saturday Noon-4:00 pm. If you need to surrender an animal, please call first during business hours to set up an appointment to bring the animal in.
