Welcome to the Humane Society of Warren County, Virginia

Our vision is to be part of a community where every pet is a wanted pet.

The Humane Society of Warren County is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing compassionate care to abandoned, abused, homeless and neglected animals in our community. We aim to educate pet owners on the importance of vaccinations and population control and to place adoptable pets in loving homes.

The Humane Society of Warren County was incorporated April 1st, 1947 by Julia Wagner to provide food, shelter, and care to lost, stray and abandoned animals of Warren County, Virginia.  In 2012 we achieved no-kill status, and have maintained it through hard work, education programs, and an outpouring of support from our amazing community.

Each year the shelter must raise over $250,000 to continue to provide lifesaving programs to the pets in our rural community.  Over 90 cents on every dollar donated to HSWC goes directly to animal care.  We can provide services to the citizens of Warren County due to the following financial resources:  fundraising events, Save the Paws Alliance large donor program, local and national grant partners, Warren County government contract, Julia Wagner Trust, foundations, donors and loose change collected through our "animal banks" that are located at local business establishments.  Your support has made shelter work enjoyable.  Animals are now transformed from sick and frightened to healthy, happy and thriving in their new loving forever home.

We extend to you our heartfelt gratitude for all the kindness you have shown these animals with whom we share our lives.

Leo is as fun as he is handsome. This 2 year old neutered Male is good with dogs and cats, but needs a home with kids 12 years or older.

Leo is high energy and needs some work on his leash manners, but he is friendly and playful. Stop by this week to meet Leo!

This is Esmeralda. She came to us a few months back after her owner sadly passed away. She wasn't too happy being here at first having lost the human she loved as well as her home but she did come in with several other feline companions who have all since been adopted. Esmeralda is the last still here from that group but that's because she's been waiting for the perfect home to come and get her. Is it yours? ... See MoreSee Less
