The Humane Society of Barron County is a non-profit animal shelter serving Barron County and surrounding areas.

Established in 1978 by a small but dedicated group of core volunteers, the HSBC started out with these volunteers taking animals into their own homes and advertising the need for forever homes for these animals. Over the years, since this humble beginning the HSBC has grown into the organization that it is today. From the homes of volunteers, relying on fundraising and the generous donations of our community, we have grown into and remain in our home on Guy Avenue in Barron.

HSBC is operated by a small staff and relies heavily on volunteers, as well as funds from donations, adoptions, memberships, and fundraisers to keep our doors open for the animals needing our assistance in the local area. 

HSBC is a private 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, funded solely by private donations and grants. The "Barron County" in our name refers to our location and the primary area we serve, we are not a government organization, and receive NO public funding or county assistance.


We sincerely thank you for making this possible.
