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.

Good morning! Happy Monday!

This week we are going to be featuring some of our "oldies but goodies". These wonderful ladies and gents found themselves in a shelter in their senior years.

Let's see if we can change their lives for the better, starting with Whiskey!

This 10 year old was surrendered over the weekend through no fault of his own. He has not been to see the vet in over 6 years! He is good with dogs and kids, but no cats.

He is sweet, calm and knows the potty routine. He is looking for adopters who can appreciate nap time, slow walks, sneaking people food under the table and movie nights with the whole family.

Let's kick senior week off with a big win!

You might remember Nala from a few months ago when she had emergency surgery to remove her uterus.

Well she is still here waiting on her special day and sadly has had to go through so much ... all alone.

Please consider Nala, she is as sweet as they come. She is 10 years old, already spayed and up to date on her rabies. She doesn't need much, just a lap, three square meals, and a safe quiet place to write her memoirs.
