Somerset Pulaski County Humane Society is a foster-home based rescue group. We do not want our rescues in a shelter environment. They are housed in our homes, with us and our families and other pets. This socializes them and they can easily transition to their new homes.

We are a 100% volunteer run organization. Many volunteers also work full time. We are not always available at all hours. We work hard so we can help animals in need and support our families at the same time! We are a private group. We rescue locally and beyond but we are not always available due to work schedules.


Adoption applications are required on all animals. We carefully check personal references and your vet reference so you will need to authorize them to do so. 

We process applications in the order that they are received. We do our best to process them in a timely manner but sometimes emergencies that we respond to happen and we get to them as quickly as we can possibly can.

When placing an animal in a home, we do look out mainly for what is best for that particular animal and the lifestyle of the potential adopter(s). If we do not place that animal with you it does not mean that you were automatically denied for adoption. It means that maybe that animal is just not right for you as we live with them and we know them best. Or perhaps we had a plethora of applicants. We do our best to place them in the best scenario for them. They have already been let down by humans at least once in their lives and we do not want that to happen again.

We DO NOT have regular daily hours, but hold TWO on site adoption days per month; 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. Noon until 4pm.
