Dear Friends: We need your help. The Wayne County Humane Society is a small non-profit organization that cares for a segment of our community that is often overlooked. Providing quality medical care to our animals and adequate shelter and adoption/rescue services is our charge. These efforts are made possible by the generosity of folks who share our love for animals. We are so grateful for all of our adopters, fosters, volunteers, donors and friends throughout the year. But right now, we need a little extra help. Even a gift as small as $5 can help save lives. Those funds go directly toward giving shelter to an animal who has suffered abuse or neglect; providing quality medical care to the animals entrusted to our care; controlling the animal population by ensuring that all animals leaving the shelter are spayed or neutered and keeping our neighborhoods safe and healthy for both animals and humans. If you are a lover of animals, please consider making a donation today to support our operations. Donate now.
WCHS added veterinary services to its operations in July 2011. Since then, all of our animals have been spayed or neutered before leaving the shelter! Not only does this help us meet our mission, it makes the adoption process that much easier for anyone adopting an animal at the shelter.
On September 27th, 2012, we completed our one-thousandth surgery with the neutering of "Gulliver."
The Wayne County Humane Society, Inc. exists to provide compassion to the animals entrusted to our care, to measurably reduce companion animal overpopulation and to take a leadership role in educating and promoting humane values. A quality, functioning shelter is a pillar in our county’s animal welfare efforts and adds value to the quality of life in our community. It is a joint venture between the humane society and the municipalities it serves.
