Humane Society Mountain Shelter

Our Pet List

Who We Are

Founded in 1987, the Humane Society's Mountain Shelter is a private, non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to preventing the cruelty, suffering and inhumane treatment of animals. We provide custodial care to animals within our facility and promote animal placement through our adoption program. We support both Towns and Union Counties and are conveniently located in Blairsville. Learn more about us.


The HSMS Thrift Shop is in dire need of items to sell. Any profits from items sold go toward maintaining our shelter. Please consider us when you do your spring cleaning. Learn more about donating new and used items.

Pets of the Month

See our list of Cats and Dogs available for adoption. This list is constantly updated.

Adopting a friend

The adoption process begins with each potential adopter working with an adoption ambassador to ensure that you are matched with the appropriate pet for your wants, needs, and lifestyle. An adoption survey is used to ask questions which will provide information on the type of pet you are looking for. The Shelter staff can then assist the new owner with the selection of a pet. The adoption fee for purebred canines or felines is $125.00 Puppies are also $125. Adult dogs are $100. Kittens are $100 and adult cats are $80.The adoption fee includes the first set of vaccinations, and deworming costs. All dogs over 6 months are tested for heartworm and under 6 months are given heartworm preventative. All cats are tested for feline leukemia and feline aids. Of course all of our animals are spayed and/or neutered prior to being available for adoption.
