Where Hope Lives Humane Society helps the animals in rural Chesterfield County SC. We have weekly transports and volunteers/rescue partners up the east coast.

About Our Rescue Group:

The Mission of Where Hope Lives Humane Society is to provide rural shelters and communities with the tools, resources and training they need to help reduce the population of homeless, neglected and unwanted pets. Our goal is to identify, inspire, empower and educate volunteers and residents within the community so one day there will be no more homeless pets.
We operate solely on donations and with the help of volunteers.
We transport many, many of our animals to other rescue groups throughout the northeast to try and keep up with the volume of animals coming into the shelter. We are NOT the shelter but a private rescue group assisting the shelter with the networking of the animals it receives.

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.
