The Humane Society of McCormick County is a private, non-profit, no-kill organization formed in September 2000. We are staffed entirely by volunteers who raise every cent of our operating capital ourselves. Our rural county is a very poor county in South Carolina. Statistically 54% of the county's population is at the federal income poverty level or below.
McCormick County does not allocate any money for shelter or even an animal control officer.
We are all our county has for any help with animals.
We approach this problem through our "No more litters... fix your critters" low cost spay/neuter program. We altered a total of 402 dogs and cats in 2016! (125 McCormick County owned dogs and cats free of charge to those who qualified for it, 136 HSMC rescues, and 141 trap-neuter/spay-release.)
