We are in DESPERATE need of foster homes! Everyday, wonderful dogs and cats are dying in our shelter due to lack of foster/adoptive homes. Please open your heart and home to help a pet in need. The rewards are endless! There are many other volunteer areas available also, driving pets to vet appointments, playing with both dogs & cats to help in socializing, grooming --the posibilities are endless-please contact us if you are interested in helping the animals--they would be so happy to meet you!!
The Halifax County Humane Society encourages all members of our community to have their animals spayed/neutered. In 2005, the local animal control euthanized 1,159 dogs and 475 cats because of irresponsible owners who allowed their animals to breed and roam free. A person who allows their pets to breed will spend more money feeding the mom & puppies than if they had just gotten the mom spayed ahead of time. We do provide assistence for spaying/neutering when we are able. Please call 866-553-7365 for more information.

Who We Are

The Halifax County Humane Society is a non-sheltered program that rescues animals and provides them for adoption to loving families. Since we are non-sheltered, we rely on generous people who are willing to be foster parents to animals while they wait to be adopted. We survive solely on donations and fund raisers.
Please note that we are all volunteers with jobs & families. We cannot take in stray animals, nor can we go pick them up. We rarely have room for owner surrenders. There are just too many in the shelter we are trying to help. We can, however, usually take litters of kittens & puppies, provided there is an agreement to have the mommy dog/cat spayed.
