Our Mission

The mission of the Humane Society of Kent County is to prevent the unnecessary pain and suffering of domestic animals in our community, and to promote satisfying and responsible relationships between people and domestic companion animals through community involvement and education.

  • He was standing on a tiny brick to keep from being choked by his too-short leash when HSKC found Neko one February day alone in an backyard kennel. He was cold, undernourished and forgotten by his owners. It's amazing he survived.

    After arriving at the shelter, the staff watched his demeanor change: he appeared grateful just to be inside, protected from the wind and snow. With a little time and attention, this 4-year-old Shepherd/Terrier mix began learning some commands. Neko put on weight and started to thrive.

    Then came the unfortunate news that Neko's heartworm test was positive. Though the staff was disheartened, HSKC put up the funds to treat his deadly disease. He spent a month confined to a crate under vet orders, but he beat it!

    Epitomizing perseverance, Neko has risen to his share of challenges time and again. He seems to know deep inside that he will find a loving home with a person who will care for him...someday.

    A happy dog who gives kisses freely, Neko loves other animals and children; however, Neko will require a home with a lot of room to run. Neko is a healthy, highly active dog who needs his daily exercise.

    After all he has experienced, we hope you'll help give this dog the lucky break he deserves by sharing his story and stopping in to visit with him.
