Welcome to the Humane Society of Alamance County! The Humane Society of Alamance County is a non-profit, animal welfare organization whose mission is to partner with our community to educate and encourage compassionate citizenship, enrich the lives of companion animals and promote responsible pet ownership through services designed to reduce pet overpopulation and increase pet retention and re-homing efforts.
Our vision is to transform how society cares for companion pets through adoption, spay and neuter programs, and humane education. Founded in 1971 to develop and implement animal welfare programs and services within Alamance County, the HSAC has continued to evolve to become one of the leading animal welfare agencies in the area. We receive no financial assistance from local, State or Federal agencies.
Unlike funded agencies, we survive on donations and support our organization through fundraisers and awarded grants. Our five core services offered to the community are the Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Program, Emily's Fund (Medical Owner Assist), No More Empty Bowls (Food Pantry), our Rescue and Foster Program, and Community Education.Our main purpose has always been to stop the overpopulation of domestic animals.
We have steadily grown as a result of our volunteers' dedication to our community and have helped thousands of pets over the course of 45 years. The HSAC has offered its low-cost spay and neuter program to local residents for more than two decades. HSAC operates independently with the support of generous contributors and volunteers. We facilitate spay and neuter surgeries through partnerships with several of Alamance County's veterinary clinics and hospitals.

The majority of our animals are rescued from Alamance County's animal shelter, Burlington Animal Services, as well as other nearby shelters. We also take in animals directly from community members when they are unable to continue caring for them.
The numbers of animals we save depends on the funds we have available to cover the cost of rescue, as well as volunteers willing to act as foster parents until permanent homes can be found. We are very fortunate to house some of our foster cats and kittens at the Luv-A-Pet Feline Adoption center within the PetSmart located on University Drive in Burlington.Want to become a foster, volunteer or both? Click here! Emily, a mixed breed puppy, was brought to us after her owner noticed she was bleeding every time she had to urinate.
The HSAC launched the "Emily's Fund" campaign in January of 2014 with the hopes of raising enough money to cover Emily's ever growing medical expenses and give her the best possible chance at survival. Sadly, despite our best efforts and those of the community that rallied behind her, Emily succumbed to her condition. In the face of her severe anemic state, Emily remained such a happy little girl regardless of how horribly she must have felt throughout her medical ordeal.
We chose to re-name our owner medical assist program "Emily's Fund" in honor of her fighting spirit!To this day, the program helps qualifying, low income families with unexpected vet bills due to illness or accident. Through grants and generous donations from the public, the HSAC has assisted multiple families since 2014 and we hope to be able to help many more in years to come. Please call our office for more info!Our qualifications are as follows: Household (low) income verified Pet must have received previous vet care Pet must be spayed/neutered Pet must be up-to-date on vaccines Education is a key HSAC effort! We strive to increase public awareness of pet owners' responsibilities through our Companion Quarterly newsletter, Quick Bark email updates, our social media pages and information booths at public events.
We also offer a slideshow presentation about HSAC that we offer to civic groups. Finally, volunteer Humane Educators conduct programs for schools, churches, Scout troops and other children's groups, teaching young people about responsible pet care.To schedule a Humane Education event for your civic or children's group, call 336-438-2023 or e-mail us at email@example.com. Do you love and care for your pet but find it has been tough to afford all of their food? Well, we're here to help! "No More Empty Bowls" is our food pantry initiative to help keep pets and families together, even through tough times.
We offer low income families a small amount of food (for up to two pets per household) as a supplement to what they can provide themselves for their animals.To benefit from our program, families may apply at our office. We do require proof that all pets joining our program be spayed or neutered and have a current rabies vaccination on file.

Outside of a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the recent blueness of the Florida sky, ran a little, tawny-haired boy. His bare feet, extending from his overalled legs, crackled towards the fallen palmettos. He leaped into the air, flinging his arms toward a flock of white doves circling previously mentioned him.
For Immediate ReleaseEmail: firstname.lastname@example.org November 7, 2015 Humane Society of Allen County Now Operated by the Ohio SPCA The Humane Society of Allen County is now under the management of the Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Ohio SPCA). For the past several years, the shelter has struggled to serve the needs of the animals and the community of Allen County. “We thank everyone for all of the work and support that we have received, but the Board of Directors felt that this move provided the best solution for the long-term viability of the shelter,” states Francis Porreca, former President of the HSOAC.
The Ohio SPCA is dedicated to helping animals through the education of adults and children, the elimination of overpopulation, and enforcing zero tolerance of animal cruelty. According to Porreca, “The Ohio SPCA has assisted in the development of our humane law enforcement program through the training and support of four county residents who will serve as humane agents and respond to reports of animal abuse and neglect.
Humane Officer Connie Diller has also been assisting with shelter management through her volunteer activities.” “The former Board of Directors has been comprised of dedicated and compassionate people. The Ohio SPCA is looking forward to their continued support and involvement as the operation of the humane society moves forward,” states Teresa Landon, Ohio SPCA Executive Director. Over the course of the next several months the humane society will be restructured during a transition period with many changes taking place.
The mission of the humane society will be fulfilled with existing programs being strengthened and expanded and new programs being added. “The Ohio SPCA will continue to rescue animals across the state, but Allen County animals and residents will receive help through county priority programs,” states Landon. “It is our vision that the animal shelter become a family destination for people from everywhere to connect with animals of all kinds.
As goals are reached, we believe that Allen County will become a shining star and the best place for animals in the State of Ohio,” states Landon. The no-kill Ohio SPCA is not connected they receive any government funding. To learn more, please visit the Ohio SPCA’s website at www.ohiospca.org
