ANNOUNCEMENT in regards to COVID-19

We here at the McCook Humane Society have been closely monitoring this situation and the impact it is having in our community. As a precautionary measure, the McCook Humane Society has decided to help ensure the health and safety of our staff and guests by closing to the public until further notice. We are committed to an active and precautionary approach to halt the spread of this and any illness at our shelter and in our community, while still maintaining our mission in finding permanent homes for our temporarily homeless friends and reuniting the lost with their families.

We will be periodically checking the messages for emergencies, and making arrangements for essential business during normal business hours of Monday through Friday from 2pm until 5pm and Saturdays from Noon until 4pm.

Please know that we are actively discussing ways to stay on top of this situation and constantly monitoring it. We will provide updates as necessary, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns. By continuing to show kindness, and remaining calm, we will get through this. We thank you for your help and support in this!


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.
