The Humane Society of Greene County is a local non-profit organization that exists solely on private and public donations. We are a registered 501(c)3 organization and donations are deductible to the full extent of the law. We depend on YOU, our donors, to enable us to do what we do – care for homeless and abused animals and to provide education on proper care of animals.
All adoption applications and references are reviewed thoroughly. Adoption applications will be approved based on the placement best suited for the animal and the adopter. We reserve the right to disapprove any application. Here are the steps you will go through in the adoption process: Our process includes asking questions, asking to see proof of identity and checking veterinary references, particularly when you have other animals at home. You’ll have a counseling session with a knowledgeable member of our staff who will fill you in on the history and needs of that animal, and his feeding and exercise requirements. You can ask your counselor any questions about spaying or neutering, housetraining, obedience training, scratching (in cats), veterinary care, how to deal with fleas and ticks, and other animal situations. You will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee. There is a schedule of fees, which begin at $40. The adoption fee covers the veterinary care, deworming, and vaccines your pet receives at the shelter. If you are adopting a dog, you must purchase a dog license. All animals adopted from our shelter are spayed/neutered.
