Our Programs and Services
Adoption – Our shelter evaluates an animal’s behavior and interests, and matches them to an adopter’s preferences so that you take home a pet you can really click with. Our Adoption Specialists are here to answer your questions and assist you in your selection process. All adoptions include spay/neuter, canine heartworm test, feline leukemia test, vaccinations, worming, local vet exam, and micro-chip. Click here for adoption process & fees.
Foster Parent Program – By offering your time, energy and home to an animal in need, you prepare the animal for adoption into a permanent home as well as help prevent overcrowding in our shelter. The shelter is always looking for more foster homes, especially throughout the busy spring and summer seasons. The best part is, all you need is love to be an FHS foster parent! Our shelter provides the rest. Learn more!
Subsidized Spay/Neuter – A limited quantity of program certificates are allocated by the shelter each month to pet owners. Owners are responsible for certain additional costs based on veterinary providers’ discretion. Flagler County residents who wish to have their pets spay/neutered at a private veterinary practice of their choice may apply to receive a $25 rebate from the County.

Free Spay/Neuter Grants - The Flagler Humane Society has received grants to spay/neuter, microchip, and rabies vaccinate Flagler County pit bulls and pit mixes, as well as trap/neuter/release community cats in Flagler Beach for free.
Microchipping – Should your pet ever become lost, permanent identification can help increase the chances of having your pet returned. Micro-chipping is an identifying implant placed under your pet’s skin by a veterinarian or other qualified staff member, and is no more painful than a routine vaccination. FHS offers this service by appointment. The fee is $25.
Retail Pet Supplies – We sell leashes, beds, pet toys, collars, food bowls and other pet care items.
Flagler County Animal Services – Our officers cover unincorporated Flagler County, Bunnell and Flagler Beach. They respond to calls on stray and injured animals, investigate abuse and neglect reports, trap stray cats, and enforce our county’s animal ordinances. For Palm Coast Animal Control services, please call 386-986-2520.
Education Program – We promote spay/neuter, humane treatment of animals and responsible pet ownership and teach children how to be safe around animals. Our presentations are offered to area schools and community groups. Click here for more information.
Memorial Gifts – Whether in honor of a special pet or person in your life who has passed away, a donation to FHS or purchase of memorial plaque is especially meaningful. Click for details.
Ambassador Dog Program – Our volunteers visit participating senior care centers and the Children’s Library with their dogs.
Pet Licenses – We issue yearly county licenses to Palm Coast residents. All fees go to help FHS.
Owner Requested Euthanasia – We offer condolences to any pet owner going through this difficult time. We will euthanize a pet at the owner’s request by appointment. The procedure is $60 and a communal cremation can be added for $20. A communal cremation on its own is $30. Other charges may apply for medical supplies and private cremation services. Please call 386-445-1814 for more information. For resources on pet loss counseling, please click here.
Safekeeping – FHS will house and care for pets of owners who are in the hospital, incarcerated or residing in a domestic violence shelter, for a predetermined length of time. Boarding or other fees may apply.
Flagler Humane Society Thrift Store – Please visit our thrift store for bargains galore! Click here for more details.
Think Green: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – Flagler Humane Society recycles aluminum cans, newspaper, and empty ink cartridges. All proceeds go to benefit the abused, abandoned and homeless animals in our shelter. While dropping off your recyclables, meet our pets!
