Our Pet List


Pet of the Month

Our pet of the month introduces himself. ..

My name is Pumpkin and I am a little overweight. ( I LOVE canned food) If I could be adopted and into a home, I could go on a diet to lose some of this weight. I am a loveing cat and very friendly. .

I get along with other cats and kittens. Although I have not been around dogs, maybe . . . .

As are all the kitties at HHS, I have been "fixed" and am up to date with all my shots. I am negatiave for aides and leukemia. Of course, I have been flea treated and my ears cleaned.


Please contact Hopewell Humane Society at 804-458-7303 to see about adopting me. I hope you are interested.

If you can't adopt me, please make a donation to help support me until I get adopted.

May Yard Sale, 2015

This spring on May 2 we had our annual yard sale. It was a success. Thank you to all who donate items for us to sell at the yard sale. Also we want to thank all of you who came and purchased items and / or made donations. We also want to thank our Shelter Manager, Helen Meleshenko, who organized and ran the sale..p>

Remember, if you have empty ink cartridges and want to get rid of them, we will take them and recycle them. You may give them to the volunteers at PetSmart on CarMia Way or bring them to the shelter. We always can use them..



Cell Phones, Ink & Toner Cartridges

Hopewell Humane is collecting and recycling these items. We have been able to get many needed supplies from accumulating and recycling the ink and toner cartridges thru Staples. Please keep them coming.

Cell Phones with batteries. Priter and toner cartridges.

You can drop these off at the shelter at 3412 Oaklawn Blvd, Hopewell or at the adopt-a-thon center at PetSmart on CarMia Way with a note that they are for Hopewell Humane Society. Someone will pick them up from the center. We are always there on Saturdays from noon to three--you may drop them off to us then also.


Hopewell Humane Society is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers. We help abandoned and unwanted animals. HHS receives no tax funds; however, the local United Way does support our efforts.

NEW BUILDING. After many, many years, we have been able to purchase a new building. In December of 2006 we purchased the old Tri-City Animal Clinic on Oaklawn Boulevard and physically moved in March/April of 2007.

Hopewell Humane is now in the process of trying to renovate the building to better meet the needs of our furry friends. We are writing grants and trying to raise funds. We are a work in progress.



We now have new updated seurity system in place. Hopefully this will help make us more secure.


HOPEWELL adopts from Petsmart on Midlothian Turnpike every Saturday from 12 to 3. Our cats are at this store 24/7 in the adopt-a -center. You may get one from us there.

You may call the shelter at 804-458-7303 for more information.



Dog Obedience Classes are now being offered through Clever Canines Therapy & Obedience Club at the Hopewell Humane Society. Visit their website for more information.
