We are an open intake shelter serving Graham and Young County. We aim to provide safe haven for unwanted animals. We provide shelter, food, comfort and socialization for the animals in our care. We work closely with Animal Control, Police and Sheriff Departments.
We have the P.E.T.S. satellite clinic on site to offer low cost spay and neuter services and affordable vaccinations and other preventative care several times monthly. Our hope is that one day our community will understand and embrace spay and neuter as the only way out of our overpopulation problem. We cannot adopt or rescue our way out of this problem.
We are a 501c3 non profit organization and we rely on donations from those who care as much as we do to keep the shelter open and operating properly. We can always use volunteers and fosters. We have a wish list of supplies for those who wish to help: bleach, laundry detergent, fabuloso, dog and puppy food, puppy pads, cat and kitten food dry and canned, copy paper, treats, gift cards, gas cards, paper towels, toilet tissue, batteries, mops, medium and large sized disposable gloves, and plastic throw away spoons.
We also have some big wishes: color printer, quaratine building, surgery wing.
We run 74% of our operations from community donations.
After 3 business days or 72 hrs, untagged animals become the property of the Humane Society of Young County and go up for adoption pending good health and temperament. Tagged or chipped animals become property of HSYC after 5 days.
A $30.00 Impound Fee is to be paid at City Hall, before an animal can be reclaimed by the owner. A receipt from City Hall must be brought to the shelter.
$15.00 per day boarding fee is charged when the animal enters the gates onto the property. The animal will be charged on the day they leave unless picked up by 12:00 noon that day.

If the Animal Control release form is checked yes for citation, the citation must be signed before the animal is released! All city fees must be paid at City Hall.
The owner of the animal is the only person who shall claim any City impounded animal. A driver's license will be required and a form must be completed.
If the animal is not spayed/neutered a one time re-adopt will be offered with all other fees waived by the Animal Control Officer.
