Address:

PO Box 900 McCormick SC 29835 USA

Mission:

The Humane Society of McCormick County is a private, non-profit, no-kill organization formed in September 2000. It was created to help McCormick County, South Carolina residents and animals because McCormick County has no animal control, no shelter, and no veterinarians. HSMC is comprised entirely of volunteers dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals, to providing shelter and care for lost and unwanted animals, to implementing educational programs and services, to placing animals in humane environments, and to promoting responsible pet ownership including spay and neuter.

Target demographics:

animals

Geographic areas served:

McCormick County, South Carolina

Programs:

"No more Litters, Fix your Critters" - our free to low cost Spay/Neuter program. Since we do not have a clinic of our own, we fill up our van with cats and dogs from county residents and travel to a clinic in the next county. Sometimes we even do a second run. Having animals spayed/neutered is the only way we are going to get handle on the animal population. Our program is helping this entire county from the residents to the animals.

Rating: 5 stars  

This is a great group. They really care about their animals and they stay in touch with the people that adopt from them.

I have been a volunteer from Aiken for five years at Aiken PetSmart adoptions. Every Saturday this group of amazing and dedicated people at HSMC fill two vans with dogs and cats and drive over an hour (one way) to the PetSmart in Aiken with hopes of finding forever homes for them. And that's only a small part of what they do for our furry friends. Every day they lovingly care for them, socialize and provide obedience training, run a successful spay/neuter program, hold fundraisers and go to local schools to educate our youth on the importance of responsibly caring for their pets. This is all done with only volunteers, donations and fundraisers...pretty remarkable!!! I feel extremely privileged to be a very small part of this exceptional organization.

I started volunteering for HSMC a little over a year ago and have been amazed by the commitment and compassion of the all of the people who are involved. They genuinely love every animal and make sure that they are going to good homes. I am proud to be associated with this group!

I volunteer at the Aiken PetSmart adoptions Saturdays for the Humane Society of McCormick County and also a dog foster mom. I met this group in Aiken and started volunteering almost two (2) years ago. They are a very dedicated group of people that does everything possible to help find fur-ever homes for all the dogs and cats. They are a NO KILL shelter and made up of 100% volunteers so the funds raised goes to helping the animals. I enjoy going to the adoptions, spending time with the dogs, being there when one finds their new family and meeting people. You can't go wrong with the Humane Society of McCormick County.

HSMC is a wonderful organization and is made up of a great group of volunteers that have the interest of the animals at heart. I have been thinking about volunteering to help an animal shelter and wasn't able to decide on one. Two weeks ago I spoke to some of the HSMC volunteers at the Aiken PetSmart Adoption and decided I'd like to help out. If I lived closer I'd help out more than at the pet adoptions in Aiken. The next pet I adopt will be from them. You couldn't ask for a better group of people.

Volunteering with HSMC has been a very rewarding experience. Every animal that comes through is well loved and cared for. The volunteers don't stop until an animal has found a loving, forever home.

Such a wonderful organization! We adopted two kittens and they were wonderful with following up with us after we returned home. Their volunteers were so helpful with teaching us how to incorporate two kittens into a three dog household. I am very impressed with how this organization is run and their love of animals!

In one of the smallest, poorest rural counties, with no laws or county personnel to back them up, this group of all volunteers with little experience have educated themselves and their community and changed the entire dynamic of animal care in this county. I am a wildlife biologist involved in animal rehabilitation and dog rescue my whole life, and I have never encountered a group so ready to adapt to each situation and each citizen while keeping the welfare of the animal front and center. Every penny of your support will be maximized, and the need is still so great.

A wonderful place, run by great people that put the animals health and care above everything else. The people at The Humane Society of McCormick County go above and beyond to find good, loving safe homes for animals in need. Very clean and well run, not only going the extra mile for the animals, but also taking the time to get to know and educate the adopter. If you need your faith restored in the goodness of humanity, then visit The Human Society of McCormick County.

This is one NO KILL shelter that does whatever it takes to give animals a chance. They are always on social media posting opportunities just like this one for people to come along aside and be a part of helping animals. They never stop looking for means to educate and inspire people to advocate for animals. Enough said.

It was around 7pm late September and my significant other and I were just about to turn down our street and head home, after a 4 mile run we squeezed in between rain storms. We noticed something on the side of the road about 200 yards past our street. Curiosity got the best of us and we went to investigate. We searched where we though we saw something and soon heard some whimpering. We found a small 6 week old pup hiding behind a tree, soaking wet. We scooped him up and hurried home, somehow along the way he got the name Taco. As luck would have it we are neighbors with with a volunteer at HSMC who provided us with food and sound advice that first night we had Taco (with plenty advice more to come). We took Taco to the vet at 8am the next day. About an hour after we got back from the vet our neighbor visited us again to check on Taco and let us know that the Humane Society was going to allow us to foster Taco, and they would provide food and cover his vaccinations. That lasted until Thanksgiving, when we signed the paperwork to bring Taco into our family. It was because of the selflessness of that volunteer, who stopped what they were doing to help us and this animal, that we started volunteering. As time progressed while we volunteered, it became apparent that all of the volunteers at this no kill shelter are as committed to the animals as the volunteer that helped us that cold wet September night.
