Last year I adopted 10 dogs, we took good care of them and got them the medication needed and the surgey that they needed and then 5 months later we gave 8 loving dogs away to people that wanted them, but we made sure that they would treat our dog with care and love. It was hard going through 3 bags of dog food each week. Blue, Pedigree, and wet food. the other three we kept and that put us at 10 dogs but we didn't mind.

We have adopted 4 wonderful pets and fostered and helped others to find good homes over the last ten years from the SPCA here in Martinsville. The employees and volunteers go above and beyond to provide loving care to all of the animals there, and the facility is so well kept. Even though Martinsville was on the list of the ten poorest cities in America recently, our city is rich with people who love and care for animals, as is shown in our No Kill community status that has happened only because of the efforts of our SPCA!

My husband and I have adopted 2 wonderful dogs from our local spca. Everyone there is dedicated to making sure all the animals they shelter are placed in their forever home. They are a hardworking group and are willing to go above and beyond for these animals.
The shelter is campaigning and is very close to its goal of becoming a no kill shelter by 2015. Until they reach this major accomplishment they work tirelessly with other facilities to assure the placement of all the animals in safe homes.
You will not find a more loving , compassionate group of people working hard for the less fortunate animals in our area.
I am proud to have them as our Animal Advocates !

Martinsville-Henry County SPCA is an amazing organization. Working towards a no-kill shelter is quite a major accomplishment. They do unique fundraising and are extremely successful taking care of and placing the animals in forever homes. We adopted our Molly over a year ago. We met her when we went to the facility to pick up some fundraising items. Our personal vet is the Supervising Veterinarian at this facility, so we went back to meet him on the day that Molly was being spayed. We wanted to make sure that he felt Molly would be a good fit to our family with our other 2 dogs. He highly recommended, so now we have a sweet girl, Molly. Her personality reminds me of our Buffy that we lost to cancer in 2010. The staff were quick to process this adoption.
The use of Facebook has made it easier for supporters to assist with the SPCA's initiatives, especially their assistance to the Henry County Animal Control. This initiative has saved so many more lives. Many thanks to all the professional staff and volunteers, and supporters of the Martinsville-Henry County SPCA.

Every person I have dealt with through the Martinsville Henry co SPCA has been exceedingly kind and helpful. While in the process of adopting my pit bull Lilly, they helped and supported me every step of the way. The love and dedication they have for these sweet animals who need it so badly is astounding. Their Facebook page is beyond helpful and informative and always up to date. These are just a few examples of why these guys ROCK!

Over the past 16 months I have adopted 1 huge dog (English Mastiff), one adult cat and a kitten from the Martinsville SPCA. The staff have been most informative and helpful with our decision making. They work so hard to help these animals find a forever home. They will spend the time needed to answer questions, making absolutely sure you are happy with your decision. Kudos to Mandy the cat manager for being so patient with me while I was trying to decide between two kittens. She told me everything she could about them. I was so happy with the SPCA staff and their devoted compassion to these animals that I went to a Volunteer class and try to stop by to help fold clothes and give some attention to all the beautiful cats and kittens. Thanks for all you do, keep up the good work! The animals depend on your unconditional love!

The Martinsville-Henry County SPCA is the most amazing place in the world to me. Not only the staff members but the animals and the care they have for them has helped me to realize exactly what I want to do in my future. Just walking into the SPCA makes me happier and feel loved. The staff members aren't just staff members or just friends; they're my family. The Martinsville-Henry County SPCA has changed my life and made it so much better.

I recently wanted to adopt a dog that had been mistreated and was at risk of being euthanized from the city pound in the area. This group assisted by providing all the info that I needed and went a step further by having the dog released to their care and getting his shots taken care of so that I could pick him up over the weekend. This allowed me not to worry that anything would happen to this dog because he was being cared for by this group. They went above and beyond to help save this dog as they do for so many other animals. They provide many services and their staff clearly loves what they do!

I have had the great privilege of adopting and fostering animals for this wonderful SPCA. Most of my precious babies come from this shelter. The animals are so well cared for, and the employees are caring and more than competent. It's apparent how much they love the animals who are blessed to be brought to them. This shelter would be terrific without its no-kill status, but knowing that it is a no-kill facility makes me value it even more.

I would wish it had more money to hire more staff so that it could do even more.
