HISTORY 

HSHoCo is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to serving Houston County. We will educate the public on the importance of spaying & neutering, micro-chipping and responsible pet care. Through volunteer networks we will provide foster care programs. We will offer adoptions and encourage a community No Kill Plan.  

FUNDING 

HSHoCo relies entirely on private donations and self-generated income such as adoption fees and monies earned through fundraising activities. HSHoCo is not a branch of any national organization, such as the Humane Society of the United States, nor do we receive funds from any city, county, state or federal source.  We participate in the Combined Federal Campaign through United Way. Donations received through this campaign have enabled us to open and maintain our location on Carl Vinson Parkway!   If you participate in this program through your employer, we would be so grateful if you would select us as a charity to donate to.  Our CFC #21835.  

POPULATION SERVED


HSHoCo serves the Houston County area including Warner Robins, Perry, Centerville, Bonaire and Kathleen covering more than 376.75 square miles with a population estimate (2006) of 127,530 people. 

ADOPTIONS: 

The Humane Society of Houston County, Inc. will have dogs, puppies, cats and kittens that will be available for adoption. The adoption fees include the cost of the animal's spay or neuter, first set of vaccinations, bath, nail trim, de-wormer, flea medication, heartworm medication, heartworm test (for dogs over 7 months old), FELV/FIV Combo test for cats. We want to make sure that our furry friends go to loving and caring homes.  All prospective new pet owners are then asked to complete an adoption application. Once the application is completed, an adoption counselor will talk to you about your application and about the pet you have chosen to adopt. You must be approved by an adoption counselor in order to adopt.
