Humane Society of Harrison County Inc. of West Virginia

We don't just place pets, we complete families.

Our Story


The Humane Society of Harrison County is a non-profit organization, and a separate entity from the Harrison County Animal Control Center. It is our mission to rescue animals left at the Animal Control Center and prepare them for adoption within a loving and safe home.

We are strictly a "no kill" facility. In other words, we keep our animals at our shelter until a good home is found. Destroying animals is not our solution to the overpopulation problem.

For every animal that we place into a home, we rescue another from Animal Control. We make every effort to select the healthiest and most compatible friends for our clients. It is a difficult choice, but one that is necessary. It is our dream to be able to save and house all the animals before they are euthanized at the Animal Control Center. It may seem like an impossible mission, but it is our goal.

The Humane Society of Harrison County is dedicated to matching your family to the perfect pet. We don't just place pets, we complete families. Please browse our website to learn more.
