The Humane Society of York County (HSYC) was founded in 1976 to help address the needs of an ever-growing animal population. Originally, all animals were cared for in the homes of dedicated volunteers. In 1999 we moved into a modern facility in Fort Mill, South Carolina, with the capacity to house approximately fifty cats and fifty dogs.

The HSYC is a non-profit organization dedicated to the humane treatment of animals.
Our mission is to prevent animal suffering, to help reduce overpopulation by promoting spaying and neutering, to educate the public about animal welfare, and to place adoptable animals in loving homes.

***** This site is run by volunteers - if you need to surrender an animal, it will be best if you visit the shelter during our adoption hours to discuss directly with shelter staff. *****


The Humane Society of York County, serving Fort Mill, Rock Hill and surrounding areas, receives NO funding from York County, the state of South Carolina, or any animal welfare organization. The sole source of funds for the HSYC is donations from local residents/businesses.

The future of the Humane Society of York County depends on the public, please help us continue to help the homeless animals.
