Our Mission

The Grainger County Humane Society (GCHS) is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization formed in May 2001. Other than the Animal Friendly License Plate Grant, we do not receive any funds from the county, state, or federal government, or any other humane organizations such as the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). Our efforts are financed solely by non-profit and corporate grants, donations from individuals and businesses, adoption fees, and money acquired at local festivals and fundraisers. All our efforts, including animal rescue and care, are accomplished by a very small group of dedicated unpaid volunteers.
