The Anderson County Humane Society is a private, not-for-profit animal welfare organization.  An all-volunteer Board of Directors governs our organization.  We are NOT affiliated with the Animal Shelter or Animal Control.  (although we do try to help place animals from the shelter)  Because we are NOT a division of County Government, we depend on donations from concerned citizens like YOU.

All of the members have regular jobs and volunteer for the Humane Society as time permits.  Our organization did not start out as a shelter and we have limited spaceto hold animals at our clinic. Many of our animals are kept in individual foster homes until they are adopted. The Anderson County Humane Society DOES NOT euthanize any animals for space; we only consider euthanasia when an animal is the final stages of a terminals illness or is in severe pain that cannot be controlled.  However, many wonderful animals have to be turned away due to the limited cages in our clinic and the limited number of foster homes.  We could really use your help in this area.  Please call the clinic at (864) 367-7220 or stop by the clinic if you would be willing to foster an animal.  This program is a life line for our animals.


To improve the quality of life of animals in the Anderson County Area.  We accomplish this mission through various programs, activities, and events.
