About PHS

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Panhandle Humane Society is to prevent neglect, abuse and cruelty, as well as the overpopulation of pets and homeless animals.

This goal is accomplished by educating the public and pet owners in the humane treatment of animals, increasing pet adoptions, and maintaining an animal shelter which is dedicated to providing humane treatment and care of all animals.

Board of Directors

The staff at PHS are certified in the Fear Free Shelter program. This training helps us recognize the signs of FAS (Fear, Anxiety and Stress) and Frustration in the animals. As a result, we can provide ways to minimize and possibly eliminate those emotions.
