Issues: Animals

Location: 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.

Nine years ago we moved here from the north and immediately were introduced to the Humane Society. We began assisting with rescuing puppies, fostering them, and helping with adoptions. I have enjoyed every second in fostering their puppies and mama dogs. They provided food, paid for the vet visits, and I got to do all the fun stuff! I've noticed a huge drop in puppies being left by the side of the road since the spay and neuter program took off. Barbara, one of their longtime volunteers, goes to the elementary school to teach the kids about proper care of their pets. The McCormick Humane Society has changed this town for the better and continues to push forward. One day there will be no more homeless, abandoned or mistreated pets in McCormick.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Pay some of the volunteers so someone is always available to talk to on their phone line.
