Humane Society of Union County is not the Union County Animal Shelter. We look for foster and permanent homes for pets.

We are a rescue organization that provides compassion, commitment and community work.

Humane Society of Union County Wins Petfinder, Orvis Animal Care Grant

The Petfinder foundation (#Petfinder) supports more than 14,000 animal-welfare organizations, providing direct funding, as well as training, education, and grants of equipment and supplies so that homeless pets have happier lives. Since 2003, The Petfinder Foundation gave more than $20 million in grants to support adoption.  Orvis is a business specializing in sporting goods and one of the company’s initiatives is aimed at dog rescue.  Humane Society of Union County will use the funds to support our foster training program.
