Pet overpopulation is a crisis throughout our country, and Union County is no exception. In 2015, the Union County Animal Shelter euthanized 63% of the 4,526 animal intakes. These are shocking figures and a sad commentary for our county. The Humane Society has attempted to reduce these numbers by spaying/neutering over 13,000 cats and dogs in the past four years.
The Humane Society of Union County is deeply engaged in efforts to counter the epidemic of euthanasia that results through a three-pronged program comprised of 1). Expanding the Foster program both in numbers and degree of support; 2). Teaching children the 4R's of animal care; Respect, Responsibility, Research and Rescue 3). On-going support of the Spay/Neuter Clinic and the Spay It Forward program. Please help us to help these homeless pets who are both worthy and worthwhile.
