The Humane Society of Warren County was established in 1947 to provide compassionate care to the homeless, abused, and neglected animals in our community. We are a unique animal shelter, in addition to cats and dogs; we care for other domestic animals large and small.

Since late 2011, there has been an aggressive campaign to increase adoptions and decrease the rate of unnecessary euthanasia. In 2013, we embarked on a five-year strategic plan to become a no-kill facility and save the lives of every adoptable, treatable pet that comes through our doors. In 2016, we could save over 95% of the animals entrusted to our care.

HSWC is not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States and receives no financial support from national organizations. Our animal shelter is completely funded by our local community. Your membership can make a difference. $30 a year can pay for 6 rabies vaccinations, 6 flea treatments, or one discounted veterinary exam.

Our members are the first to learn about our progress, statistics, and upcoming events through a copy of our quarterly “Shelter Tales” newsletter. You will also get a membership card and a vote at our annual board meeting held each April. Business members are welcome to display their promotional materials in our foyer.

Those donating $1,000 or more are awarded lifetime membership and are recognized as part of our Save the Paws Alliance. Funds generated from our Save the Paws members are specifically designated to provide the financial resources necessary for the Humane Society of Warren County to achieve their goal of becoming a no-kill facility and saving the life of every treatable, adoptable pet. Save the Paws members receive special recognition at our annual meeting and a gold lapel pin.
