Who We Are

The Humane Society of Wilkes is a non-profit volunteer organization in Wilkes County, NC. We are dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals, the relief of suffering among animals, and the education of the public regarding humane treatment of animals. We support these goals through our member dues, tax-deductible donations, and fund-raising projects such as our annual Best Friends Calendar and booths at the Brushy Mountain Apple Festival. With these funds we have been able to place billboards around the county encouraging spaying and neutering of pets, provide Kind News subscriptions to all kindergarten, first and second grade classrooms in Wilkes County, and work closely with Wilkes County Animal Control to place pets from their shelter into appropriate homes. We also help to pay for spaying and neutering of pets for residents of Wilkes County. By contributing funds for pet sterilization we are helping to reduce the problem of pet over-population.

Adopting a Friend

Most of the pets listed here are in foster care. However, a few may be at the Wilkes County Animal Shelter, Wilkesboro, NC.
