Henry County Humane Society
- Pet Service
The Henry County Humane Society was formed in 1981, and began operating a full service animal shelter in 1984 from the County government's building. in 1995, we acquired our own building and moved the shelter operations to the current location on Independence Drive. The purpose of the HCHS is the prevention of cruelty to animals and the promotion of humane principles in our community. The animal shelter helps lost, abandoned, unwanted, abused and homeless animals by providing humane care and services to re-home animals or reunite lost and found animals with their rightful families. By requiring that all animals adopted from our shelter be spayed or neutered before going home, we are a part of the solution to the pet overpopulation problem in our area. We also provide humane agents to investigate complaints of animal cruelty and humane education for school children in the classroom and also our adult customers.
