The Humane Society of York County was founded in 1976 to help address the needs of an ever-growing animal population. Originally, all animals were cared for in the homes of dedicated volunteers. In 1999 they moved into our current facility in Fort Mill
Their mission is to prevent animal suffering, to help reduce overpopulation by promoting spaying and neutering, to educate the public about animal welfare, and to place adoptable animals in loving homes. They advocate for animal rights legislation, and support the prosecution of animal abusers.
They are dependent on volunteers for the day-to-day operations of the Humane Society of York County (HSYC) and for enhancing the quality of life for their homeless pets.
Volunteers can find many opportunities to assist the shelter on a regular basis OR for specific activities/events. Activities include walking dogs, socializing cats, serving as foster parents or adoption counselors, baking items for fundraisers, participating in the coordination of fundraising events, helping to maintain the shelter, working in the thrift store, and helping at adoption events.
Interested parties can also help by donating financially via PayPal.
Their shelter is located at 8177 Regent Parkway, Fort Mill, SC 29715 and they are open from Tuesdays to Sundays from 1:00 to 4:00 in the afternoon.
