The Humane Society Of Mccormick County

Rating: 4.98 stars   63 reviews

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.

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.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

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.

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.

My 13 years with HSMC NO KILL SHELTER has been so rewarding, not just because of the incredible people I have met, but the feeling of giving & helping all the unwanted furbabies that come in all shapes & sizes & need us to love them & make them feel they are wanted...I started volunteering when we had a low small shed we stored the food in & when it was raining the only part of you that was covered was your head. It would be cold & wet, very miserable I might say, but when you saw the faces looking at you so appreciatively & lovingly, it made it all worth it. The ALL volunteer effort is beyond words & I love them ALL...also am enjoying our newly built shelter...warm & cool...
I will also add that most of the volunteers are not spring chickens,no offense guys,you are great...!

I have been a volunteer for 14 years at this rescue. I was a volunteer from its inception. I have adopted 3 dogs in the last 14 years. I walked and fed and cleaned pens for 11 years. I no longer volunteer weekly, but as a sub, since I am getting on in years. I have never worked with an organization that is so caring and so committed to saving animals as this organization. The volunteers are passionate about saving the dogs and cats of our county. We have no animal control in our county and without the Humane Society of McCormick County with their spay/neuter program the amount of dogs and cats not being under control, due to not spaying or neutering and just being let out into the wild would be in the thousands. I am proud to be a part of this organization.

This is the most caring group of people I have had the opportunity to work with. The time and effort they put into taking care of the feral cats and rescue animals is amazing. It is a labor of love, and it shows in all the volunteers that work tirelessly to make a better life for all the unwanted and abandoned animals. Their future is much brighter thanks to these fine people.

As a resident of McCormick County for three and a half years and a "dog walker" for the Humane Society of McCormick County for a little over a year, I'd like everyone to know that this organization is full of the most dedicated volunteers ever. Because we receive no government support, the volunteers work constantly to raise the funds to care for our abandoned or homeless dogs and cats. This is a major effort. No fund-raising event (yard sale, dinner, nut sale, etc.) is over before another one takes its place. This requires hours of selfless dedication to our animals. We have no paid staff. Through the support of our community and these volunteers, we are able to provide veterinary care, food and shelter for our animals. We are a no-kill shelter that even has a very successful trap-neuter-release (& feed) our feral cats. It never ceases to amaze me what this group accomplishes. And we are so successful at finding forever homes for our animals as well. I can't tell you how much I admire what the HSMC does. It is a truly great organization.

Th McCormick Humane Society is full of the most dedicated volunteers. They have done a wonderful job of providing a shelter for both dogs and cats. Strictly volunteer with no funding from county. Willing to go out of their way to help. Very devoted to their cause.
