Highland County Humane Society

Monterey, VA

Our Mission

Located in beautiful Highland County Virginia, the Highland County Humane Society is dedicated to promoting health, safety, welfare, compassionate care and protection of animals through a cooperative engagement with Highland County, its citizens, and other like-minded animal welfare groups. We are a group of dedicated volunteers and foster homes taking unwanted animals from the public as well as the Highland County Pound. Our group consists of animal lovers and each of us believes that every animal deserves a loving home.

The HCHS is completely funded through membership donations, private and corporate sponsors, and fund raising events. Your tax deductible donation provides day to day care, veterinary services, food and shelter for the animals under our protection. We are a 501c3 organization formed in 2012 in response to a need in our county. We welcome any help and assistance you may be able to offer and we’d like to thank everyone who has been so supportive and helpful in our creation.
