The Humane Society of Greenwood is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit animal welfare agency comprised of staff and volunteers. The HSOG is not funded by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), ASPCA, or any other national animal welfare agency. The HSOG is supported by donations and funding from Greenwood County to manage the Greenwood County Animal Shelter.
Under contract with Greenwood County, the Humane Society of Greenwood’s animal care professionals operate the Greenwood County Animal Shelter, the safety net for any lost, abandoned, or relinquished companion animal in Greenwood County. HSOG staff promote adoptions of shelter animals at the Adoption Center and at off-site adoption events, as well as work strategically with out-of-area rescue groups who adopt animals from the Shelter and re-home in areas outside Greenwood.
We are transport partners with Spartanburg’s Animal Allies Low-Cost Spay/Neuter clinic. Our Spay/Neuter Program location at 241 Wilbanks Circle is a pick-up point for transport from Animal Allies so area pet owners can take advantage of the low-cost services. Preventing unwanted litters is the most effective way of reducing euthanasia at the animal shelter.
We coordinate and participate in community outreach through: 1) presentations to schools and civic organizations, 2) media (HSOG website, Facebook, local news outlets, radio), and 3) fund raising events.
The Humane Society is located behind the Greenwood Civic Center. Our address is 235 Wilbanks Circle in Greenwood, South Carolina. Once you turn onto the road by the Civic Center, follow the white-painted paw prints straight to the Shelter.
