About the North County Humane Society

The North County Humane Society was founded as Action for Animal Rights' in 1977, and moved to its current location in Atascadero in 1997.  NCHS runs a “no kill” cat shelter, and the organization’s goals are to prevent animal homelessness and over population.  The cat adoption center is open Tuesday through Saturday, and additional programs are available for spay/neuter, feral trapping, microchipping, and homeless kittens.

We are grateful for and depend upon the monetary, time, and in-kind support of donors, members, sponsors, and affiliates for our funding.  We welcome your contributions.  Please stop by and visit with the cats, kittens and friendly staff at our shelter.
