The shelter in Watertown can be traced back to as early as the 1920s where two compassionate souls cared for homeless animals on their farm. Since that time, the Watertown Humane Society has been not only a beacon of hope for pets in this area, but also a sanctuary for all the people who love them.
Watertown Humane Society works diligently to provide homes for the lost, homeless, neglected and abused animals of the City of Watertown and surrounding communities. It also helps educate the public on animal welfare and animal care issues.
The duty of the Watertown Fire Department is to serve the public through the preservation of life, property and the environment with the highest level of dedication, professionalism, compassion, and pride. They follow through on our mission every day, to the best of their abilities. Their department is made up of three fire crews, administrative staff, and EMS.
On behalf of the entire team at the Watertown Fire Department, thank you for allowing us to serve you. They welcome your feedback and appreciate your continued support.
