Canine Military Partnerships

FHS partners with three different organizations as we help match the right pet with a veteran in need. The organizations are; K9’s for Warriors, Pets for Patriots and Paws of War. We salute the men and women who serve or have served our country!

Educational Opportunities


  • FHS produces several informative and educational newspaper articles monthly, and we even host a weekly radio show called, “Speaking of Animals”, that brings in expert animal welfare industry leaders to answers questions, disclaim myths, and overall help you understand your beloved pets better.
  • We have a large social media presence from our website, Twitter account, Facebook (three pages – Flagler Humane Society, Flagler Animal Services and Flagler Humane Society Thrift Store) with our Facebook page having one of the highest support/following rate in all of Flagler County.
  • At the request of various groups, schools, civic groups, community centers, nursing homes, and other places to help educate the community about what it is we do, how to care for your pet, bite prevention, why adopt a new pet, etc. Often times we will bring with us an adoptable pet to showcase.
  • FHS will provide humane materials and conduct interviews for students as they prepare a speech or classroom presentation.

Ambassador Dog Programs

  • Owned, properly trained pets are taken with their volunteer pet owners to visit the sick and elderly in assisted-living facilities, group homes, etc. This Ambassador Dog Program is also involved in a children’s reading program, in which school children read to the dogs, both at schools and at the local library.
  • Reading to cats is a new program we just recently started at Petco. This program is where children come to read to all our adoptable cats, located in the stores. They love the attention and socialization.

Wildlife Care

No animal in need is ever turned away from the Flagler Humane Society, as we care for injured and orphaned animals of most species as space/resources allow. Species of animals beyond our area of expertise are transported in a timely manner to a rehabiliation center or veterinary hospitals to provide the proper care. Once a wild animal is able to survive on its own, we responsibly release them back into their natural habitat.

Pet Relinquishment

This is always the last resort for any pet owner, and should be thought through well before heading to our shelter – but we are here for you if you want help.  Learn more here.

Think Green: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

The Flagler Humane Society recycles aluminum cans and newspaper. All proceeds benefit the abused, abandoned and homeless animals in our care. While dropping off your recyclables, come in and learn more about the many services offered.
