      COVID-19 Statement Humane Society of Young County

In an effort to keep the community and our staff as safe as possible during this novel Corona Virus pandemic and following the recommendations of the CDC for social distancing,  the Humane Society of Young County will be working under the following protocols:


-We are working by appointment only at this time. You can reach us by email, Facebook/Messenger, or you can call and leave a voicemail. We will contact you to schedule an appointment.


-If you need to surrender a pet you will need to call for an appointment. We have seen a large increase in the number of owner surrenders recently and we are staying near or at capacity. If there is a way we can help your pet stay in the home please let us know. 


-If you have found a stray pet, please share a photo to the Graham Texas Animal Control Facebook page and other social media pages to help owners reconnect. You may also share on the Graham Humane Society of Young County Facebook page. Also call in lost and found animal descriptions to the Humane Society of Young County. We will keep a record and let you know if anything has been brought in that matches your description. We can also schedule a time for you to have a found dog or cat scanned for a microchip.


-If you are looking to adopt a new family member we appreciate that, and ask you to go to the adoption tab below. You will find

all of our pets up for adoption are listed with photos and information. Our application is also available on this tab. Applications can be emailed ( )  faxed (940)-521-0792 or filled in online. We will do our best to monitor emails and will accommodate adoptions with approved applications as we are able. Understand the process may be slow and we may ask that you stay in the parking lot to help limit exposure to you as well as our staff.


Our staff will continue to care for the dogs and cats in our shelter. We will continue to accommodate adoptions as we are able and will continue to reach out to and work with our rescue partners to save more pets.


Our PETS Clinics are  scheduled for spay & neuter by appointment and our walk in clinic for vaccinations and preventatives monthly. Transport to PETS WF for surgery on the Fourth Wednesday of the month is also scheduled. Precautions will be taken for the safety of our clients and our staff by limiting the number of people inside the facility and by coming to your vehicle for care as needed. Call, email, or message us for more information.


**We are also requiring masks or some type of nose/mouth covering inside the building and at times that at least 6 feet of social distancing cannot be maintained**

We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause, but everyone’s safety is our first concern. We appreciate your patience in these stressful times. Just remember: stay calm, social distance, wash your hands, and hug your dogs and cats.

The Humane Society of Young County has been helping stray and unwanted animals of Young County, Texas, since 1979. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and rely on donations to keep our doors open. We are dedicated to the welfare of all animals. We are strong advocates of spaying and neutering all pets to reduce the overpopulation problems that we now face. There will never be enough homes available for all the dogs and cats being born today--we cannot adopt or rescue our way out. The only answer to this problem is through spay and neuter. We serve all of Young County and several surrounding counties. We are also the reclaim center for Graham Animal Control. We regularly network with rescues to help find homes for our animals.
