Our Mission

Posted by Wendy Schaefer, Category: ORHS News,

The Oconee Regional Humane Society is dedicated to improve the lives of animals in our community and to find loving and permanent homes for cats and dogs in our care.

We rescue animals scheduled for euthanasia from local animal control facilities and from other homeless situations, and provide a safe haven for animals in transition in our loving foster homes.

We work to end animal overpopulation and disease through an aggressive spay/neuter program for the pets of low-income residents in our community.

We know of no other community spay/neuter program that offers NO-COST surgeries for the pets of needy residents.

We help needy families feed and care for their pets, serve as advocates for animals and their people, and educate the public about compassion and responsibility toward all animals.

Our adoption center is a No-Kill facility where all incoming animals accepted are evaluated, medically treated and rehabilitated when needed. ORHS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that does not receive any government funding and relies on the goodwill and generosity of individuals and corporations.

Adopting a Friend . . .

All of our animals have been spayed or neutered and have had vaccinations and rabies shots.
