The Riverbend Humane Society was founded in 2005 and is a non-profit organization. The shelter operates just south of Jerseyville, where a no-kill policy gives homeless animals a chance to live out their lives and find loving homes. Support for the Riverbend Humane Society is by funds from the resale shop and grooming parlor, donations, and grants.
