Who We Are

The Foothills Humane Society owns and operates the only animal shelter located in our entire county. We are determined to create and maintain a model program of animal control and protection for Polk County, NC.

Adopting a friend

Adopting is easy. We collect your info to determine if the dog or cat you would like to adopt will be a good match. Our goal is to ensure that every pet adopted from our shelter is going to his/her forever home. Our staff is here to answer your questions and help you through out the process from "shopping" for your new friend, adopting and caring for him/her, introducing pets you may have to your new family member and finally taking your new pet home. We are still here to help you with you new pet's adjustment and training. We offer "Foster to Adopt" for adult dogs and cats so you can take a pet home and get to know him/her for a few days in your own home. Most of these "trial" periods result in happy adoptions. Dogs over 4 months old are $80, Dogs under 4 months are $100, Cats over 4 months are $60, Cats under 4 months are $80. For kittens/puppies too young to be spayed/neutered we ask that you leave a $100 deposit that we hold onto until we have confirmed that the pet has been spayed/neutered..
