The Harris Elementary School National Junior Beta Club sponsored a Pet Supply Drive in conjunction with our school's recent "Paws for Books" Spring Book Fair. Our 86 member club, along with other members of our student body, brought in approximately 275 pet supply items that we are excited to donate to the Rutherford County Humane Society.  The mission of the National Beta Club is to promote achievement, character, leadership, and service. The motto of the club is: Let us lead by serving others. Our Beta members were excited to take part in this service opportunity to support our local Humane Society in their efforts to care for unwanted and neglected pets in our area. As the Harris "Bulldogs", we have a special place in our hearts for pets and we hope our donations will make a difference!

Rutherford County Humane Society

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.
