About Our Shelter:

Henry County Humane Society (HCHS) is an all volunteer run, no-kill animal shelter located in McDonough,GA.

HCHS was founded in 1979 and functioned as a foster home based rescue group until 2005. In 2005 Henry County Splost Funds were used to build a new animal control shelter and Henry County's Board of Commissioners granted HCHS use of the former animal control building. After a complete renovation, the Henry County Humane Society shelter opened as a happy safe haven for Henry County's homeless pets.

HCHS depends entirely on private donations, fundraisers and adoption fees to carry out its mission. HCHS is a private organization, not a county agency, and receives no government funding nor any funding from national humane organizations. Donations can be made via PayPal from a link on our homepage at www.henryhumane.com or mailed to HCHS, PO Box 941, McDonough, GA 30253. Donations are much appreciated!

HCHS is a non-profit organization and licensed by the Georgia State Department of Agriculture.

HCHS rescues animals facing euthansia from the county run Animal Control shelter. Animals in our care are given age appropriate vaccinations, spayed/neutered, dewormed and treated with capstar and/or frontline.

Dogs are also heartworm negative (treated for heartworms if tested positive) and are microchipped.

Cats are also feline leukemia (Felv) and feline AIDS (FIV) negative.

Pediatric spaying and neutering is performed on puppies and kittens as young as 8 weeks old.

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.
