Consider a Companion in Your Life
Who We Are
The Sequoia Humane Society is a private non-profit organization dedicated to providing shelter and humane care to homeless animals while working vigorously to end the tragedy of euthanasia caused by too many animals not enough homes.
Our goals are to:
- End the overpopulation of cats and dogs
- Keep animals with homes from becoming homeless
- Find homes for all adoptable animals.
Adopting a friend
Our adoption process involves completing an application form and meeting with an adoption counselor who can help potential adopters find the right animal for their situation and clarify the responsibilities of pet ownership.
Our adoption fee is $100 for a dog or cat. This includes the spay/neuter fee, first vaccinations, microchip, FELV/FIV (cat) & Heartworm/Lymes (dog) test, and all other care the animal has received. It also includes free health insurance, too.
Come Visit Us!
We are located just east of US HWY 101 at the King Salmon exit a few miles south of Eureka, California.
Our Pet Adoption Center is open for adoptions from Noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
We are partially funded by proceeds of our Tailwaggers Thrift Shop.
The volunteer-run shop is located at 2904 F Street in Eureka. All proceeds from the sale of gently used merchandise are used to support our work on behalf of the homeless and abused animals of Humboldt County.
And you can participate in a variety of volunteer positions available, too, if you like!

Some of our Adoptables Looking for Good Homes
is a 11 month old male Retriever and Kelpie mix. His coat is sparkling black with a bit on white on his chest and paws- making him look like he’s wearing a tuxedo! Tux is a sweet loving boy with a great personality! He loves young children, dogs, and people. Tux has lots of energy and would benefit from a house with a big yard or a ranch home! He would do wonderful in specialized training, as he is extremely intelligent. Tux knows how to sit, lay down, shut the door and come!
Is Tux the new companion you’ve been looking for?
is a 5 year old female Shepherd/Retriever mix. She has a very calm and mellow personality, she knows how to sit and even shake!
Honey walks marvelously on a leash. She can be selective about which dogs she chooses to play with.
Are you looking for a little Honey to sweeten your life? Stop by to see this charming gal!
is a 3 year old male Border Collie/Jack Russel Terrier mix. He weighs around 35 pounds. Pongo was a transfer from another shelter and seems to be quite the charmer with his smile and personality!
He knows how to sit and loves to explore out in the yard.
If interested come down by the shelter and take a look at Pongo!
came to us with her five littermates. The litter was born about 9/20/2012, but this is just an estimate.
Her mother and father were found on the Hammond Trail… and then the puppies were discovered!
Gracie is trying to set herself apart. She is quiet and reserved, but a handful for her littermates! Stop by the shelter and have a look at this little gem!
is a 2 year old male short-haired brown tabby cat. He was found in an alley in Henderson Center, very ill and had been put into a paper bag and left out to die. Despite his rough start and the plethora of problems Scrubbles has had to deal with, he is a feisty and fun loving kitty!
He plays too rough for most cats, but would do well with a doggie friend. Scrubbles is trained to walk on a harness and loves to get out. He has a huge personality and has become quite the front office “star”.
is a male Domestic Shorthair mix. He was born around 07/01/2012. Charlie came into our facility with his eight other litter mates.
If there ever was a tenacious cat, it would be little Charlie. He is so determined. He loves to play with cat toys, and it’s hard to get him to stop when play time is over.
Are you in need of an independent, playful, spunky cat? Look no further than Charlie!
Are you looking to adopt a big beauty with captivating eyes? Look no further… I am Katalily
, born around 3/8/08, and I have short hair!
I am not a super active kitty, so I would be perfect if you would like a nice lounging kitty to purr-fect your home (everyone needs one like me!).
Won’t you come visit me at the Sequoia Humane Society?
All of us could use some play time and love!
