About Us

The mission of the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast is to provide
compassionate care and nurture the bond between people and pets.


Founded in 1955, the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast (HSTC) is an open admission shelter.  We accept all animals regardless of health, age, temperament or breed.  Over the years more than 100,000 animals have received care through HSTC's programs and services.  HSTC is pleased to announce that we have received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator.

By sponsoring a HSTC program, attending our events, or contributing through our direct mail campaigns or publications, you continue to help us provide quality medical care, food and shelter, adoption and spay neuter programs, humane education and other important services for the animals and community.  Thanks to the generous support of people like you, we are able to expand and grow these vital services.  Our staff and volunteers encourage compassion for all life on our planet.
