Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We proudly serve the animal welfare needs of Harris County, Georgia. We will occasionally take relinquishments from outside the county when space is available.

About Our Rescue Group:

The Humane Society of Harris County was founded in 1991 and has continually serviced Harris County and the surrounding area for 21 years. HSHC currently provides shelter and adoption opportunities for homeless dogs and cats though a small network of foster homes and a small kennel on loan to us by a Harris County resident. Just over 600 animals have found new, permanent homes since 2008. In addition, we provide numerous outreach programs including:
• HSHC Pet Food Pantry, which is run in coordination with the Harris County Meals-on-Wheels program. The program has distributed over 4,000 pounds of food since its inception.
• “Tag You’re It”, a pet identification initiative that encourages residents to properly identify their pets by offering low cost microchips and tags. Over 200 resident dogs and cats have been identified through this program.
• Dog Obedience Classes to help local residents train their dogs and overcome behavior problems that cause owners to relinquish their animals to shelters.
• “Helping Hounds” a program run in cooperation with the Muscogee County Youth Development Campus pairing youth offenders with shelter dogs. The program is built on the premise that dogs and people together can become the catalyst for a positive change in each other’s lives.

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.
