Located in beautiful Highland County Virginia, the Highland County Humane Society is dedicated to promoting health, safety, welfare, compassionate care and protection of animals through a cooperative engagement with Highland County, its citizens, and other like-minded animal welfare groups. We are a group of dedicated volunteers and foster homes taking unwanted animals from the public as well as the Highland County Pound and neighboring animal shelters. Our group consists of animal lovers and each of us believes that every animal deserves a loving home. Nearly 2000 animals have been rescued since July 2012. HCHS is a 501c3 organization and is completely funded through donations, private and corporate sponsors, adoption fees and fund raising events. Your tax deductible donation provides day to day care, veterinary services, food and shelter for the animals under our protection.
