In the 1970’s, a group of citizens interested in preventing animal cruelty founded the Humane Society of Shenandoah County. Since that time, these volunteers have made a significant impact in the lives of our county’s animals and its residents. All our members are volunteers who are willing to donate both their time and their services to protect our county’s animals and to improve the quality of life for its residents. In 1999, the Humane Society received its non-profit status and has been operating as a 501c3 organization for more than ten years. Our only source of income is provided by fundraising events, grants, bequests and individual donations.
All of HSSC’s programs are designed to keep pets from entering the animal shelter in Edinburg and promoting responsible pet ownership. HSSC does not have a physical location and all of our volunteers foster out of their homes. HSSC has a shed at the Edinburg park where we store our supplies and also hold our Spay & Neuter transport to Anicira Veterinary Center. HSSC does not have a facility.
The Humane Society of Shenandoah County programs are designed to help the most vulnerable animals in our community:
Aggressive Spay/Neuter program:
Operation Catsnip & Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)
Transport to Anicira (Two Times a Month)
