WE ARE FULL - All animal intakes are done by appointment only.  Please call the shelter for an appointment.

We know you've always wanted a dog, cat, bunny, or other awesome animal. And now's the time friends! We are here to help you get ready for your new family member, as and as soon as you're ready to take the big plunge. Owning an animal is, after all, one of the most gratifying things you can do.


What sets us apart......

Nestled in the beautiful mountains of Pike County you will find an oasis for stray, unwanted and                   abused pets. Unlike a traditional shelter you will see dogs playing with one another, sleeping                       cuddled together on blankets and beds, and living just as they would in any loving home.

You will meet cats, not in cages, but in a facility that allows them to stretch out, play, use scratching               posts and have the company of other cats. The pets here are truly happy.

We are blessed to be able to provide such an environment for our homeless pets, and as a result of             this environment, our pets are able to make the transition to a forever home much easier, and with               less stress.

Due to our unique set up, no pet is euthanized  because of lack of space or time limits. All pets in our           care receive any needed veterinary care, regardless of how complex.

Our goal is to provide the best quality of life possible while our pets live with us.

We can tell you about our shelter, but visiting is much better!  Our pets love visitors, and you just might         find your new best friend!

You have to do it anyway, so why not walk your dog and raise money for your favorite animal shelter?

It's hard knowing what to do when you're about to adopt. But, we make this process even easier when you adopt with us, because we have trained staff that will go over every possible question or concern you and your family might have on introducing your newest pal to the family. 

Our shelter is always looking for new volunteers to help us with many tasks.  Volunteers are the heart of any organization and Pike County Humane Society is no exception.  We have so many great opportunities for volunteers....you can help in the shelter and learn about animal care, you can help us at adoption events and be integral in helping pets find their forever families, you can assist us with fundraising events and help our shelter grow!  Volunteering is one of the most rewarding experiences you can ever have.  You get to personally make a difference in the lives of animals and become a part of our shelter family.  Volunteer hours can also be used toward community service projects for school, church, & work.  If you have a volunteer project or event idea we would love to hear about it too!   To learn more about volunteering with the Pike County Humane Society please visit our volunteer page ---> Volunteering  If you have questions, please feel free to email us at pchsfundraising@gmail.com or call today!

The walk for a dog app is free and easy to use.  It is also a great program that helps raise much needed funds for our shelter.  All you have to do is go to the app store on your cellular device and download the app.  Once downloaded, they ask for your email address and the charity you want to support.  From there you can either enter our name - Pike County Humane Society, or search us using the state, and then scrolling to our name.  You will be asked to go to your email acct and click the link to verify your email.  Its that simple!  Once you are all set up, all you have to do is open the app on your phone each time you take your dog for a walk.  Want to help even more?  Get a group of friends together and make an event of it!  There's no better way to socialize and exercise our pets, or ourselves than with friends.  The application will track your activity for you and the Pike County Humane Society will benefit!  

Help Jesse Find Her Christmas Miracle

Jess is an amazing girl who has been at the Pike County Humane Society for nearly a year and we don't understand why.  She is outgoing, loving, playful and just beautiful.  She loves being with people and playing with her big shelter dog friends.  She loves toys, and rolling around in big fluffy blankets and beds.  Her wish this Christmas is to find a loving, forever family of her very own, and lots of great presents under the tree just for her.  Every dog deserves a home for Christmas, and because our good friends at Makin' Trax II believe the same, they have already paid for Jesse's adoption fee to an approved application.  Adopt Jesse today and gain a best friend for life!

Our Mission...

  • To prevent cruelty to animals by educating people in the humane treatment of all animals.
  • To educate and indoctrinate society and individuals on the intricacies of having and owning pets by explaining the responsibility endowed by such ownership.
  • To provide shelter, food, care and medical treatment as needed for the lost, abandoned, abused and unwanted animals that come under our care.
  • To evaluate prospective adoptees and to find good homes for the animals we care for.
  • To educate people in the importance of spay/neuter programs and to function as an agent by making available a low cost spay/neuter program to address the overwhelming unwanted animal population.
  • To offer cooperation and assistance to appropriate authorities to investigate and prosecute animal cruelty, abuse and neglect.

We work hard to make sure that we take care of all of our pets here at Pike County Humane Society. But, unfortunately we can't do it without people like you and your donations of time and money. So, if you ever feel like you want to be a part of our family and help some of the best animals around, check us out.
