Central Dakota Humane Society has been doing great things for pets and people in the Bismarck-Mandan
and the central North Dakota area for more than 60 years.

In addition to rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming homeless pets,
we provide a place for volunteers to help in the community.

We educate about proper pet care, animal cruelty laws, our organization's mission, and the importance of volunteerism
through school visits, shelter tours, and service group presentations.

We fund our good work through donations, grant writing, memberships, fundraisers, and events.
We encourage all pet owners and pet lovers to honor their own pets
by giving back and donating to CDHS, as we continue doing great things for pets and people.

The Central Dakota Humane Society provides vital services for the animal population of Bismarck-Mandan and the central North Dakota area. We rescue, house, rehabilitate, and rehome stray, injured, abandoned, and abused animals.

We also promote the spaying and neutering of pets to reduce the number of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens in our area.
