Who We Are

Although Paws Humane has only been in existence for a decade, its roots date back to 1969 when Colonel Syd Sacerdote established the first animal shelter in Muscogee County called the Muscogee County Humane Society.

Barks and Blues Festival

Although our Barks and Blues Festival was cancelled in 2020 due to the Covid 19 pandemic, we hope you will plan to join us in 2021 for our fifth festival! Previously, our festival has featured a full line up of live music, food & beverages, vendors, adoption specials and been an integral part in raising donations to continue our life-saving mission.
