April 8, 2020 UPDATE 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. We are now operating under a Limited Access Policy. Our priority has always been the safety of our staff, volunteers and guests, while still maintaining our mission in finding permanent homes for our temporarily homeless friends and reuniting the lost with their families.

We have paused our Monthly Nail Days, until further notice.

We will be handling adoptions on an appointment only basis, one family or person at a time. Please fill out the adoption online at our website. You will be contacted in the order in which the applications are received, and an appointment will be made during our otherwise normal business hours. You will be asked a series of health/COVID-19 related questions to ensure your safety and the safety of our staff.

We truly appreciate your considerate patience during this unusual time, and thank you for your continuing support. Please call us with any concerns or questions. By continuing to show kindness, and remaining calm, we will all get through this.


Dogs Available for Adoption

Thank you for choosing to adopt a pet. If you are interested in adopting a puppy or dog listed on this website please contact us or visit our shelter to meet the pets "in person."

There is a nice selection of dogs and puppies for adoption. Stop in the shelter and take a look at them and perhaps take one home with you.

If the pet you are looking for has already found a family, please consider one of the other wonderful pets who needs you.

In a perfect world, every dog would have a home
and every home would have a dog.

Website photos and pets' availability are updated weekly.  "Adopt a Pet" on KICX radio, 96.1 FM, airs each day between 7:30 and 8 am with the latest information on our adoptable pets or give us a call at the Shelter.


"COLUMBUS" is a very handsome Staffordshire Terrier who came in with another Staffy that we named Wichita. These two came in as strays and we really can't believe that no one claimed these two sweethearts. Columbus is a black and white male, best guess around a year old, and just one of the sweetest and friendliest guys ever! We know nothing of their past, we do know he gets along with absolutely everyone he's met here!

"WICHITA" is a gorgeous Staffordshire Terrier who came in with another Staffy that we named Columbus. These two came in as strays and we can't believe that no one claimed these two sweethearts. Wichita is a brindle and white female, best guess around a year old, and just one of the sweetest little girls you could ever meet. We know nothing of her past, we do know she gets along with absolutely everyone she's met here!

"SARGE" is a very handsome, sweet and lovable young adult brindle and white Staffordshire Terrier who came to us as a stray and wasn't claimed. He is extremely well behaved, but will need someone who is used to big muscular dogs just due to his size and the fact that he still thinks he is a puppy! We've been working on his leash training, and he learns quickly, is easily trained and just seems to want to please you. He's a happy guy and we've all come to fall in love with him. You will too.

Still need a hug? "BUDDY" is another hugger! He's a very social and sweet two year old black and tan Coonhound mix who comes to us because his previous owners would like to keep the cats around the farm. Buddy is a wonderful guy, loves every human he comes into contact with, gets along great with other dogs, especially loves kids! However, he is not a good pal to those of the feline persuasion, so he needs to go to a home where there are no cats.

Hobbs and Shaw

Hobbs and Shaw are here! These two bouncy happy young boys were born on September 5th, and were brought to us because the owners had nine of them and just couldn't find homes for all of them. The mom was a Catahoula, Hanging Tree and Heeler mix, while Daddy was a Corgi and Collie mix. Wow! These guys are very active, smart and friendly and need an active home to go to.

First, this is "HOBBS." He's black and tan with white markings.

"MERA" is a young adult black and tan female Terrier mix who came in as a stray that wasn't claimed. This girl is just a sweetheart and loves anyone that she meets. We don't know anything about her past, we haven't seen her have any issues with other dogs or anyone that gets near her. She's actually got quite a unique personality that you're surely going to fall in love with!
