The Humane Society of Greenwood is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit animal welfare agency comprised of staff and volunteers. The HSOG is an independent agency, not funded by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), ASPCA, or any other national animal welfare organization. Under contract with Greenwood County, the Humane Society of Greenwood’s animal care professionals operate the Greenwood County Animal Shelter, the safety net for any lost, abandoned, or relinquished companion animal in Greenwood County. HSOG staff promote adoptions of shelter animals at the Adoption Center and at off-site adoption events, as well as work strategically with out-of-area rescue groups who adopt animals from the Shelter and re-home in areas outside Greenwood.
The Humane Society of Greenwood recently moved into a newly constructed facility co-owned by Greenwood County. Having a well-designed, modern facility that provides healthy housing and efficient sheltering, the HSOG is now ready to work on transforming our community’s culture regarding pet care. Education is key to helping people understand how important spay/neutering their pets is to reducing pet overpopulation and taxpayers’ costs.
