The mission of the Oktibbeha County Humane Society, Inc. (OCHS), is to promote domestic animal welfare. OCHS is based on the belief that the community has the responsibility to treat animals humanely. Its goals include providing humane education; promoting animal welfare legislation; advocating and facilitating pet sterilization; and rescuing, sheltering, and promoting adoption of abandoned animals.
