Our Featured Pet...


Depending on the day we have a huge variety of dogs and cats. We also occasionally have guinea pigs, gerbils, lizards, snakes, chinchillas, ferrets, birds and many other types of animals. We can only hope that you will come out to see us and our ever-changing list of animals. You may find a new best friend! Please keep checking our Facebook page and website for upcoming events.

Who We Are

The Humane Society of Richland County is a nonprofit charitable organization. Our mission is to provide safe and humane treatment for the animals of Richland County, to educate the public as to the proper care of animals and to assist with or initiate prosecution of those who mistreat animals.

Adopting a friend

Our adoption fees are $75 for cats; $100 for kittens; $175 for most dogs and $225 for puppies. Every animal is spayed/neutered, given age appropriate vaccinations, flea treated, de-wormed, microchipped and feline leukemia or heartworm tested prior to adoption. Many of our dogs are obedience trained, crate trained and house trained during a stay at the MANCI TLC dog training program. We require potential adopters to fill out an adoption application which can be done in person or downloaded from our website.

Come Visit Us!

The new building is open to the public, so come out and find a new friend or just tour the facility.
