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 animal shelter in Front Royal, Virginia.  Established in 1947, we have been a safe haven to the lost, abandoned and abused pets in Warren County for over 70 years.  In 2012 we achieved no-kill status, and are proud to maintain it.  You can expect an inviting and welcoming atmosphere when you visit the shelter, and compassionate care for our animals.

We have many community minded programs designed to educate and support our neighbors, including a free pet food bank, a low-cost spay/neuter program, and twice yearly rabies clinics at the shelter.

We are a passionate group of employees, volunteers and fosters working hard to achieve a future where every pet is a wanted pet.


Mission Statement:  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.

Update on Shannon!

Shannon saw the vet yesterday and was a very well behaved girl. She is pretty scared of everyone so I was very surprised when she hid at my legs and put her paw on me.

Shannon was diagnosed with a staff infection and chronic allergies. She is on an antibiotic for the staff and Apoquel for the allergies. She is also getting a medicated bath.

Thank you so much to everyone who donated!
