Our Pet List

Who we Are:

The Humane Society of Sumner County (HSSC) is a small, private, non-profit (501c3) service organization that promotes the humane treatment of abandoned, lost, and displaced animals. HSSC provides temporary shelter, necessary medical attention and mandatory vaccinations, and sterilization to aid in population control. Our adoption staff joins loving, qualified and responsible people with these animals and works diligently to re-unite incoming lost animals with their people. HSSC encourages the public to help control the over-pet population through spay and neuter awareness and offers assistance to people who qualify. HSSC has diligently served this community since 1974 and is solely supported by donations.

Here are some of the things that we do:

  • Adoptions
  • Offer shelter to those homeless animals in need.
  • Maintain a lost and found service
  • Lots of belly rubbing

If you have lost an animal, please email or bring a flyer with a photo and description of your companion to our shelter so that we can post on our lost/found board.
We scan every animal that comes in for a micro-chip ID. Please have your animals micro-chipped, it may save their life one day.
