The Central Dakota Humane Society opened its shelter in Mandan in 1994, but we've been caring for the animals in our community for nearly 60 years. In 1960, we started with 12 members as the League for Animal Welfare.

We receive no city, state or federal funding for our services.
We rely solely on your donations to operate.

The Central Dakota Humane Society provides vital services for the animal population of Bismarck-Mandan and the central North Dakota area. We foster, house, rehabilitate and relocate lost, strayed, injured and homeless animals. We also promote the spaying and neutering of pets to cut down on the number of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens in our area.
