Domestic Shorthair / Domestic Shorthair
A 12190 Washington Hwy., Ashland, VA 23005 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats.
1 - 6 of 6 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
While we are centered in Hanover County, Virginia, we adopt our animals both to homes within Hanover county, and the counties surrounding Hanover County.
The Hanover Humane Society was organized in July 1986, and with the support of the public, raised $20,000 toward the construction of the new County Pound, which opened in 1990. Hanover Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are NOT affiliated with Animal Control or the County Pound. Animals enter our system either as strays, owner surrenders, or from the local pounds. These animals are given medical care, spayed or neutered, then placed in a foster home or stay at our facility. They are brought to adoption stands or can be seen at the kennel and given visibility on our website until they find a “forever” home.
We strive to educate the public on many topics including spay / neuter and proper treatment of animals. This is done through brochures, public speaking, and participating in many events each year that provide us with visibility.
The organization is funded through donations from the public and by holding fund raisers.
