Review for The Humane Society of McCormick County, McCormick, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For 11 years I've fostered for this wonderful group of volunteers. They provided food, toys, and other assorted accessories and all I had to provide was the love. All of the volunteers I've been involved with are kind and loving, not just to the animals but to their foster parents. You have to be a loving person to be able to do what they do every single day. The cat barn ladies show up first thing in the morning to clean, and feed all the cats and kittens, then stick around to play with them awhile. All of this is on their own time, which really impressed me. It always makes me sad when I have to let go of one of my fosters so I can't imagine how bittersweet it is for these people when they have to let go of another pampered dog or cat to it's forever home. There is a special place in Heaven for each one of them.

Review for The Humane Society of McCormick County, McCormick, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
