We are a safe haven for unwanted animals. We provide shelter, food, comfort and socialization to the animals. We serve Young County and we work closely with Animal Control, Police and Sheriff Departments. We assist each other when it comes to animal cruelty to make sure that the animal is removed from the situation and that the abuser is punished per the law. We are here to help the community with questions and we work with PETS that offers low cost spay and neuter once a month with transport from the Humane Society of Young County, Inc. We are a non profit agency and we rely on donations from those who care as much as we do to keep the shelter open and operating properly. We always can use volunteers and fosters. We always have a large supply list: bleach, laundry soap, blankets, toys, dog and puppy dry food, wet dog and puppy food, puppy pads, kitten food dry and canned, dry cat milk, puppy milk, copy paper, tarps, leashes, collars, treats, ink cartridges, receipt books, gift cards, gas cards, paper towels, toilet tissue, deodrizer refills, mop buckets, large water bowls or buckets, pipe for additional fencing needs, medium and large sized disposable gloves, plastic throw away spoons, magnets, laminating paper.
After 3 business days or 72 hrs, untagged animals become the property of the Humane Society of Young County and are up for adoption.
After 5 business days tagged animals become the property of the Humane Society of Young County and are up for adoption.
