May 28, 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 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.
  • At this time, we are still planning on having our June Nail Day Event (Saturday, June 13th, from 1pm until 3pm). We will keep you updated as to any changes on how it will be handled.
  • At this present time we will still be handling adoptions and surrenders on an appointment only basis, one family or person at a time. For adoptions, please fill out the adoption application online on 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.


"PADDIE" is another sweet guy that showed up as a stray and wasn't claimed by his owner. This adorable adult black male Patterdale Terrier is a very sweet and friendly guy who just really likes anyone he gets around. He's apparently been out and about for a while, but he sure must've been somebody's baby at one time because he loves all of the attention he gets from us! He's smaller than you'd think, weighing in at 28 lbs, but he sure carries a lot of love!

Wow, another very handsome guy needing a forever home! "BO" is almost six years old, and he's a white and brown English Setter mix who comes to us because his owners just can't keep him anymore. Bo gets a little nervous around very young toddlers, but otherwise this guy gets along with everyone. He's very smart, actually sweet, energetic and needs to find a home with folks who know the breed's needs and characteristics.

"BUSHWACKER" comes to us because his previous owner's health has deteriorated to the point to where he just can't keep up with this very active four year old! Bo is so friendly, sweet, outgoing and gets along with absolutely everyone he meets. He's a German Shorthaired Pointer, Lab and Heeler mix who just needs to find an active family to be with. He points, he definitely wants to hunt. He loves to play and is one super smart dog!

Check this very handsome guy out! "FLOYD" is a gorgeous adult white and tan American Bulldog mix who comes to us because his previous owner couldn't keep him with his current situation. He gets along with everyone he meets, bonded absolutely and quickly with his previous owner, but doesn't do too well with the felines. This beautiful boy will be best suited in a home with folks who know the breed and understand them completely.

Floyd the Am Bulldog


"BAILEE" is a beautiful and sweet young adult tri-color Heeler mix who came to us as a stray that nobody claimed. She's sure got a personality, a sweet disposition, calm and smart, ready to please, and if you look into her eyes, you wonder how anyone could not be looking for her! She gets along with everyone she meets, and would make someone an excellent companion.

Another cutie... "RUBY" is another stray that no one came forward to claim. This girl is an adorable red Dachshund and best guess Chihuahua or Terrier mix. She's an adult, super sweet, and she gets along with absolutely everyone. We can't find anything wrong with this little darling!

"HARLEY" is a very young black and white Lab and Australian Shepherd mix who is still basically all puppy. He comes to us because due to life changes, unfortunately his previous owner is unable to keep him. This guy gets along with everyone, but truly needs to be in a home with a very active lifestyle and with folks that have a lot of energy and time to spend with this young energetic fellow! He's smart and willing to learn, so if you're looking for a companion for either work or play, you should meet Harley!

This pretty gal's story will make you cry. "BRANDY" comes to us because her owner passed away. She's a five year old white and brown Wirehaired Terrier who misses her owner, and is really not sure of what's going on in her life right now. The folks that took her in just can't keep her due to their own health issues, and brought her to us to find her a new forever home. We'd love to see her find her new home so quickly that it helps her get over the loss of her human, and the confusion of being bounced around.
