Programs & Stats
Safe Haven Program
Conway Area Humane Society offers assistance to those needing to temporarily house their pets during crisis situations. Some possible situations include incidents of domestic violence, fires, floods, medical emergencies and housing or employment difficulties. We encourage our community members to reach out in times of need, providing compassion, confidentiality, dignity and respect.
Pet Food Pantry
We want to ensure that all pets are fed. Dog or cat food is available in our food pantry during times of need. We hope to increase offerings in 2021 and beyond to provide additional items to support the nutritional, safety and behavioral needs of pets.
This program looks to connect senior citizens with senior pets. Our homeless animals need company, and many seniors could benefit from having someone to love. CAHS offers this service free of charge and commits to take back the animal if the person is no longer able to care for the pet.
Local and Regional Rescues
CAHS assists when there are cases of animal cruelty in the area by opening our doors and helping affected animals find the loving homes they truly deserve. We also conduct a significant amount of regional and national transports to rescue animals from outside of our community. These animals may be cruelty case rescues, strays, national disaster victims, or may be facing euthanization in other overcrowded shelters. CAHS provides animals in line to be put down a second shot at life and a caring forever home.
Conway Area Humane Society is all about education. By teaching our community about animal welfare, we hope to further the compassionate treatment of animals. We provide educational outreach programs to schools, civic groups and the community in the form of informational talks, school visits, live and virtual events, field trips, after school programs, and more. Our programs extend beyond the classroom. CAHS provides support groups for animal owners as well as fun, recreational events that the whole family (furry friends and all) can attend. We extend this work outside of our walls, providing digital access to events and site visits into the community.
Our new Community Events Enrichment Room, unveiled in 2020, is a prime location for all in-person outreach and livestream broadcasts. From pet photo shoots to engaging fundraisers, and summer camps to children’s story times, the possibilities are endless for this new space. This space will also be a dedicated space for our Junior Board program, a leadership opportunity for young adults in the eighteen communities we serve.
