The Humane Society of Harrison County is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1994 by Jennie McKemie, with its stated purpose being: to promote humane care and treatment of all animals in Harrison County needing protection, to prevent cruelty to animals, to relieve suffering among animals and to extend humane eductaion, especially regarding spaying and neutering companion animals. We support the following programs:
Spay/Neuter Assistance — Please submit an application and if you qualify, then the Humane Society will pay for the spay/neuter surgery of your pet. All surgeries are performed by vets in Harrison county. This offer is not good toward adoption fees from the Flora Shropshire Animal Shelter. Please help reduce the number of homeless animals born each year. We are proud to raise the money to pay for spaying/neutering your pets.
Prevent-A-Litter Month — 10% spay/neuter discount coupons honored at Brooks Animal Clinic and Harrison Vet Clinic during January and August.
Fostering — We need volunteers to care for shelter dogs and cats in their homes until they are adopted. Please considering becoming a foster parent!
Rabies Clinic — We help with paperwork while vets administer low cost rabies, canine and feline vaccinations in addition to selling dog licenses at four locations during the month of September.
Adopt Some Love! — Several adoption events are held at various locations throughout the year to promote animals housed at the Flora Shropshire Animal Shelter. Take a look at adoptable pets right now!
We have also funded many improvements to the shelter including a 30′ x 40′ exercise yard, the puppy room and the Sallie McKemie Cattery.
If you’d like to join us at a meeting, they’re at 6:30 on the second Tuesday of the month at Harrison County Hospice Building.
