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.

  • For ten long years Charlie never knew love, warmth or a happy home. Chained to a tree his entire life, he was seized last winter in a very bad state. Charlie was cold and thin, suffering from Heartworm and Lyme disease. The odds were stacked against this poor dog.

    But something amazing happened the day an Animal Control Officer seized Charlie. After he was released from his chains for the first time and took steps towards freedom without anything to hold him back, Charlie gazed up at the officer and, in that moment, he became a different dog. Immediately, Charlie relaxed as if suddenly he realized he was safe.

    When he arrived at the shelter, everything was new to him. Never having been indoors, the floors, walls, and ceilings were initially intimidating to Charlie. Because people had rarely interacted with him, it took Charlie months to learn how to play. Today, he is a squeaky-toy fanatic and beginning to pick up the game of fetch too!

    Anyone would be lucky to adopt this senior Staffordshire Terrier mix. He’s a lover who is calm and great on a leash. He appears to smile when looking people in the eye, silently acknowledging his gratitude for the second chance he’s been given. Charlie is good with kids and would thrive as the only dog in a home.

    Come out to the shelter soon to watch Charlie play with his squeaky toy and consider giving him the home he never had.
