Pet of the Month!

Meet Loki!

Loki is one of the sweetest boys there is! He is a fluff ball of pure love and the ultimate snuggler! He loves to play with his best friends Bruno and Mozzerella and you can often find them submerged in their outdoor digging adventures. We’re not too sure where he thinks he’s digging to – maybe it’s to you!

Who We Are:

We are a group of volunteers dedicated to providing a safe, loving, and permanent home for all companion animals. We believe that a world which shows empathy toward animals will show more compassion and tolerance toward each other.

Columbus Humane Society is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization funded through tax-deductible donations, by people like you. We do not operate a sheltering facility. Instead, we recruit foster “parents” who take dogs and cats, puppies and kittens into their private homes until permanent, forever homes are found.

-Our Vision-

That all companion animals are provided a safe, loving and permanent home.

-Our Purpose-

Advocacy…speak up for vulnerable animals to prevent cruelty.

Population Control…it is urgent that we reduce the numbers of unwanted pets through spay and neuter. Every spay and every neuter prevents MANY births.

Educate…the children and adults of our community about the responsibilities of pet ownership. These responsibilities are non-negotiable.

Adoption…and providing additional opportunities for adoption beyond our geographical area through the CHS website, Petsmart, Petfinder and Pawprints Magazine.

How You Can Help!

It’s easier thank you think!
Kindness toward animals helps build a better world for all of us
  • Become a foster family and give a homeless animal a second chance at life.
  • Volunteer your time for a few hours each month at adoption events or fund-raisers
  •  Make a tax-deductible gift.
  •  Adopt a pet to give a loving animal a permanent home.
  •  Have your companion animals spayed and/or neutered.
  •  Donate items for foster animals, like toys, scratching posts, pet beds and bowls, leashes, towels and blankets.
Come Visit Us!

Since we do not have our own sheltering facility, we work out of volunteer foster homes in a multi-county area including Columbus, Bladen, Robeson and New Hanover Counties. Foster parents readily open their homes to these animals for the care and attention they need. They will also welcome YOU into their home to meet the pet who interests you, so you may observe the pet in a familiar environment.

Also, our dedicated volunteers visit Petsmart in Wilmington, NC almost every Saturday to offer some of our pets for adoption. Please stop by to see if we have the companion you desire. Petsmart is located on Market Street and New Centre Drive in the Target Shopping Center.
