Welcome to the Humane Society of Warren County, Virginia

Our vision is to be part of a community where every pet is a wanted pet.

The Humane Society of Warren County is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing compassionate care to abandoned, abused, homeless and neglected animals in our community. We aim to educate pet owners on the importance of vaccinations and population control and to place adoptable pets in loving homes.

The Humane Society of Warren County was incorporated April 1st, 1947 by Julia Wagner to provide food, shelter, and care to lost, stray and abandoned animals of Warren County, Virginia.  In 2012 we achieved no-kill status, and have maintained it through hard work, education programs, and an outpouring of support from our amazing community.

Each year the shelter must raise over $250,000 to continue to provide lifesaving programs to the pets in our rural community.  Over 90 cents on every dollar donated to HSWC goes directly to animal care.  We can provide services to the citizens of Warren County due to the following financial resources:  fundraising events, Save the Paws Alliance large donor program, local and national grant partners, Warren County government contract, Julia Wagner Trust, foundations, donors and loose change collected through our "animal banks" that are located at local business establishments.  Your support has made shelter work enjoyable.  Animals are now transformed from sick and frightened to healthy, happy and thriving in their new loving forever home.

We extend to you our heartfelt gratitude for all the kindness you have shown these animals with whom we share our lives.

Hey you!

Yes, you! The adult only family with dog training experience and no other pets!

We desperately need your help!

Please consider adding Cosmo to your family. He is an energetic, exuberant boy who needs a family that can put in some work on his manners.

He can be a good boy but that's not going to happen without structure, consistency and patience. Give him a chance!

Cosmo spent a whole year at the shelter we got him from, and is looking for a brighter future in Warren County.

Come by and meet this tiny little guy, he is precious and BONUS: already neutered!
