Cold Weather Care

For those folks who have an outside dogs, please remember with warm/hot and cool/cold weather, that your canine friend needs to have a well constructed dog house, and that they need fresh water and food EVERY DAY! They can't acquire these essentials by themselves; they have to rely on your kindness.

Who We Are

The Mineral County Humane Society is a small group of local animal lovers working to assist our 4 legged friends who cannot help themselves. Some of our projects have included donating materials to have dog houses built and distributed to those in need. Working with shelters to help find permanent homes for unwanted pets, as well as a list of other activities. These things are all made possible by those donating time to the projects as well as the generous monetary donations of members and individuals in the community. We meet every 3rd Tuesday at the Moose Lodge in Keyser WV at 7:00 PM. We welcome you to join us as visitors to see what we are all about and encourage you to join us as members to help those in need.

Thought of the month:

We call animals “dumb,” but in many ways, they’re smarter than humans-not because they have more intelligence, but because they access it more freely. Their instinctual knowing hasn’t been overridden with social programming that distracts them from their true nature. Animals accept themselves and their purpose as they are, and in such innocence, they’re precisely guided. Alan Cohen
