Who We Are

We are a non-profit animal shelter located in Shinnston, WV whose goal is to rescue homeless and unwanted animals. The Humane Society operates totally off of donations and contributions from our community. All of our fundraisers directly benefit the animals in our care. We also provide a Spay/Neuter program for Harrison County residents.

The Humane Society of Harrison County is a separate entity from the Harrison County Animal Control, which is also located on Saltwell Road, Shinnston, WV. Our mission is to rescue as many animals as possible left at the Animal Control Center and to get the animals ready for adoption into loving, forever homes. Our goal is to be able to save and house as many animals as possible before they are euthanized at the Animal Control.

Adopting a friend

Adoption fee for puppies, small breeds, and pure bred dogs is $150, for medium or large breed dogs over 1 year of age is $95, for kittens and cats is $85, and for Siamese, Himalayan, and Persian mixes it is $150. This covers the cost of spay/neuter, first round of shots, earmite treatment and de-worming. Depending on the veterinarian used, some additional fees may apply. Some local vets charge an anesthesia fee or co-pay as well (fees vary by vet) which is paid to the vet at the time you pick up your pet following surgery.

Our Pet List

Any potential pet adopter only needs to come to the shelter and fill out the pre-adoption questionnaire. Once approved and the adoption fee is paid, you can take home your new family member ASAP!

Out of State adopters are also required to get a health certificate from the veterinarian for transporting(Average cost is $20). This is due to a policy at the animal control center from which the dogs are pulled. The Humane Society of Harrison County has no control over that policy.

Come Visit Us!

We are open 7 days a week from 10:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
