A Pro-Life Shelter
New Year...New Home! At White River Humane Society, all dogs over 1 year old, all cats, and all kittens have special adoption fees for the new year! Give a WRHS homeless pet a new beginning by bringing one into your home. This is only for a limited time so stop by and see what is available or check out our website today! As of 1-23-15, funds are still available for reduced adoption fees!
Our special cat of the week is Nellie. Nellie came to the shelter with another female who she shared 11 babies with. Both were great mothers caring for each other's babies. Nellie's friend and all her babies have now found new homes, but Nellie is still waiting. She is pretty young, around a year old, and she gets along with other cats. Nellie has been at the shelter since last Spring, and she hopes that she isn't there until this spring. Nellie, along with all the other cats and kittens at the shelter has a special adoption fee!
To care for the lost and homeless animals of Lawrence County, while providing education and services to the public that will lead to reducing the number of unwanted animals born in our community.
Prevent a Litter, Fix your Critter!
