The Humane Society of McCormick County

I am a proud failed foster home. We fostered a shy, loving dog named Barrett and after a couple of months, we realized that he fit in perfect in our home and with our other dog. We made it official and adopted him. After he gets settled, we plan on fostering more dogs for the HSMC. It is very rewarding and fostering first is a great way to know if a dog is going to fit into your household.

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

try to get more people involved. Once you learn the great impact that the HSMC has on the community, you just want to help. And working with the dogs and cats is the best part. They are worthy of our time and love.

Many people love animals and want to help in some way. The great thing about this organization is that people can volunteer every day, once a week, or just during special events and we need both hands-on volunteers and behind the scenes help. I live an hour from McCormick but I can still help by taking pictures at adoption events, sharing adoptable animals on Facebook, and helping to find grant opportunities online. Of course, if I wanted to walk dogs or trap cats, I would be welcome and someday I might move back and help them this way too.

I have been volunteering with the Abbeville / McCormick Habitat for Humanity Family Selection Committee since 2001. After the first year, I moved to Augusta but I still travel to McCormick and volunteer because they are doing such great work. I believe in the Habitat mission and the people involved are wonderful.

I have been volunteering with the Humane Society of McCormick County for 9 years. I have participated in a variety of activities but the most enjoyable moments are when I am hands on with the dogs and cats. I like to help at our adoption events whenever I can. Adoption events are good for the animals because they get socialized, they get some training, and they get lots of attention. And, they might find a forever home! It is the best feeling in the whole world when you know a dog will get to sleep on someone's bed that night because you volunteered that day. And for me, I get to play with puppies, dogs, kittens and cats. I love animals but I can't take them all home with me. My husband says I get my "puppy fix" when I help at adoption events. For every person that helps, one more animal can be shown off and possibly find a home that day.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the many thank you's I hear when I go on adoption events. Past adopters bring their newest family member back so we can see how well they are doing. The happy families and the healthy dogs/cats are all the motivation I need to continue helping at these events.

Ways to make it better...

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

try to find a way to strengthen their volunteer base. The entire organization is made up of volunteers but the key 20 people do 85% of the work. Animal rescue is hard work and stressful and the more volunteers that can help, the easier the burden would be on the individuals.
