Events

Throughout the year, the Quincy Humane Society holds several fundraisers. Our two largest are the Mutt Strut (Fall) and the Fur Ball (Spring). We also have several smaller events throughout the year.

These fundraisers are critical to our success in order to keep our shelter operating. Below you will find a list of all of our upcoming events. Please contact the shelter if you have questions, would like to attend, or volunteer.

Summer Camps

Each summer, the Quincy Humane Society hosts Critter Camp and Leaders in Training Camp. Our summer camps are designed to give young people educational hands-on experience with our shelter animals. Critter Camp is for children entering 2nd through 5th grades and focuses on learning about a variety of pets and teaches children responsibility and compassion for animals. Leaders in Training Camp is for children entering 6th through 8th grade and focuses on careers with animals, as well as, how they can make an impact in animal welfare.  Each day of camp is filled with animal interactions, exciting guest speakers, daily activities, games, crafts, snacks, and more!
