Improving the Lives of Animals
In Rutherford County
We meet every third month (no longer monthly) on the third Tuesday at 7:00 PM at the County Annex Building in Rutherfordton.
Rutherford County Humane Society is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that has been serving Rutherford County since 1979, with the mission to significantly improve the lives of unwanted and neglected animals, and to measurably decrease this number through our spay and neuter programs, volunteer foster homes, and outreach and education. We are an independent organization that works in collaboration with other area animal advocacy groups. All of our efforts depend on our passionately compassionate volunteers, and financial support from the community.
Due to limited finances, we closed our Adoption Center on Railroad Avenue. We have made the decision to use our resources to continue promoting the number one solution to our pet overpopulation problem - and that is spay/neuter. We are available to you at our phone number - 828-286-0222. Our mailing address is still PO Box 998, Rutherfordton, NC 28139.
Our website (http://rutherfordcountyhumanesociety.org) is always current, and you can contact us through the web. You will receive a prompt reply. We have adoptable pets posted on the site. If you need to find a home for a pet, you may contact us to have your pet posted on our website. We also post on Petfinders.com and PetAdoptionPortal.com.
As always, we welcome your financial support. We appreciate you as a Humane Society member for your continued support which makes our work possible.
