Animal Protection & Welfare,
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
Direct beneficiaries per year: We spay/neutered a total of 402 dogs and cats in 2016! (125 McCormick County owned dogs and cats free of charge to those who qualified for it, 136 HSMC rescues, and 141 trap-neuter/spay-release.)
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.
We are the proud new parents of Charlie! Charlie is a sweet loveable hound mix from the Humane Society of McCormick County that we fell in love with when we visited Petsmart. He captured our hearts immediately. All the people from the Mc Cormick group were so helpful and worked with us to be sure Charlie was going to a good home. His foster parents gave us alot of information about Charlie and all they had been doing with him...you could certainly tell they loved him and had taken such good care of him. The Humane Society of McCormick County does so much good with minimal resources. Their volunteers have hearts of gold and do eveything they can to save the lives of as many animals as possible and make sure they get forever homes! They took adoption pictures of Charlie that day and made it a "family picture"...me, my husband, Emma (our 8 year old dog) and Charlie! What a good memory to have of that day! Charlie has been with us a week now and is a wonderful addition to our family! Our many thanks go to everyone involved with the McCormick group!
