The Humane Society of Camden County, Inc. (HSCC) is a private non-profit corporation that has been in existence since 1986 serving the needs of the homeless and abandoned animals in our area. The HSCC contracts with Camden County (which includes the cities of Kingsland, St. Marys and Woodbine). They pay a portion of our annual budget in return for services in housing their stray animals. We hold strays for 5 days in order for any lost animals to be reclaimed by their owners. After 5 days, the animals become the property of the HSCC and may be moved to our adoptable section. There is no limit on the time an animal may remain in the adoptable section, sometimes months until they are adopted. In March 2000 we moved to our new climate controlled shelter that is five times larger than our previous shelter. An intake building was opened in 2005 to accommodate an increasing volume of animals and improve operations. Since 1986 the Humane Society has conducted countless fund-raising events to raise funds. We hope to develop more, and better, programs and seminars to educate the public on the plight of homeless animals and informing them of the numerous wonderful, loving animals available at the shelter. A volunteer board operates the HSCC and a paid staff is employed at the shelter.
