About Our Rescue Group:

The Humane Society of Wilkes is a volunteer organization. We do not have a shelter, but we work to rescue as many pets as possible from the county kill shelter. We are dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals, the relief of suffering among animals, and the education of the public regarding humane treatment of animals. We support these goals through our member dues, tax-deductible donations, and fund-raising projects such as our annual Best Friends Calendar and booths at the Brushy Mountain Apple Festival. With these funds we have been able to: place billboards around the county encouraging spaying and neutering of pets, provide Kind News subscriptions to all kindergarten, first and second grade classrooms in Wilkes County, and work closely with Wilkes County Animal Control to place pets from their shelter into appropriate homes. We also help to pay for spaying and neutering of pets for residents of Wilkes County.

You can become a member. Contact membership@humanesocietyofwilkes.org. You can contact our fund-raising committee to help with fund raising projects at fundraising@humanesocietyofwilkes.org. You can contact our adoption committee to provide a foster home for a pet, or help with monthly adoption fairs at adoption@humanesocietyofwilkes.org. We receive no public funding, so monetary contributions are always greatly appreciated and are tax deductible to the maximum extent allowed by law. Contributions may be mailed to Humane Society of Wilkes, P. O. Box 306, North Wilkesboro, NC 28659.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
