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.


Our silly girl Suki is back due to no fault of her own.

Suki is a 7 month old intact Pitbull mix. She loves treats and to dress up in pretty outfits. She is quite the model.

Suki has lived with many other animals and children and does well. She is the friendliest wiggle butt ever. She wags her tail so hard she hits herself in the face with it.

If you are interested in this pretty girl, please visit us during business hours Thurs-Tues 10-4!

I'm Zen.I'm a chucky gal that has been here way too long. I would prefer to be the only animal in the home, but as long as they respect my personal space I should be okay. I do this neat trick where I walk in and out a carrier on my own, this is because I don't like being picked up. I love treats and cuddles too! ... See MoreSee Less
