About Us

With an adoption center and two thrift stores, the Shepherd of the Hills Humane Society serves the needs of homeless dogs and cats in the Branson, Missouri area. Donations and volunteers are critical to our success.

There's no way around it, when you have as many animals as we do, it takes many hands to get the job done well!

Supported by an involved, hands-on Board of Directors, the Adoption Center team works 7 days a week to care for the animals and ensure the center operates at the highest levels mandated by the US Department of Agriculture and in line with the requirements of Taney County Animal Control.
