Significantly improving the lives of unwanted
and neglected animals in Rutherford County



Rutherford County Humane Society is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that has been serving Rutherford County since 1979, with the mission to significantly improve the lives of unwanted and neglected animals, and to measurably decrease this number through our spay and neuter programs, volunteer foster homes, and outreach and education. We are an independent organization that works in collaboration with other area animal advocacy groups. All of our efforts depend on our passionately compassionate volunteers, and financial support from the community.

Due to limited finances, we don't have a central adoption center. All of our adoptable pets live at the homes of individual foster parents in the area.

We are available to you at our phone number - 828-286-0222. Our mailing address is PO Box 998, Rutherfordton, NC 28139. Our website (http://rutherfordcountyhumanesociety.org) is always current, and you can contact us through the web. You will receive a prompt reply. We have adoptable pets posted on this site. If you live outside our area, arrangements can be made to have the pet transported to you. If you need to find a home for a pet, you may contact us to have your pet posted on our website. We also post on Petfinder.com and RescueGroups.org.

As always, we welcome your financial support.  We appreciate you as a Humane Society member for your continued support which makes our work possible.
