​Newberry County Humane Society has been dedicated to animal welfare for more than 35 years. During that time, we have been dedicated to improving conditions at the Newberry County shelter, promoting spay/neuter, and educating the public about caring for animals.

We are not the shelter. The shelter is operated by Newberry County. The Humane Society provides community pets in need with medical care, food, and other assistance. The shelter and our local Newberry County veterinarians help us identify these animals and find solutions for care


Our mission is keep pets out of shelter and in loving homes by fostering and sending unwanted puppies and dogs to rescue, providing low cost spay/neuter options, and providing pet food to food banks.




  • Donations of pet food to food pantries: GAAP, Living Hope Foundation, We Care Chapin, Zion United Methodist Church, and Pomaria Community Food Bank

  • Pet food supplied to pets in need in the community

  • Purchased traps and TNR of 47 cats

  • Expenses for medical treatment in partnership with Pet Care of Newberry, Triangle Veterinary Hospital in Union, and College Animal Hospital including:

    • Heartworm treatment for 3 dogs

    • Parvo vaccines for adult dogs at Newberry County shelter

    • Exams, medical treatment, vaccines for community pets

    • Spay/neuter surgeries for 58 cats and 51 dogs

    • Funded surgeries for 17 dogs through our Fix-a-Pit Event

  • Fostered, vetted and sent 5 adult dogs and 80 puppies to rescue in New York

  • Distributed donated dog houses and purchased straw to pet houses


Your generous donations have made this possible and donations are needed to continue this good work!

Fostering Saves Lives
Fosters are needed now. Call 803-321-2185.

There is limited room in the shelter and when overcrowding occurs, animals are killed for lack of space. Are you able to take in a shelter pet or two during times when the shelter runs out of space? You will truly be a life saver.

We are lucky to have Rescue groups pulling pets from the County shelter. Can you foster a pet while they wait for transport? This is usually between two weeks and a month. If your schedule or lifestyle keeps you from having a full-time pet, this a wonderful way to enjoy having a pet for a short time.

The shelter is especially stressful to special needs pets like seniors, pregnant and nursing mothers, and those who need medical treatment.  We offer help with the cost of special care if you are able to open your heart and home to these special animals.

As a foster you will be able to give a potential adopter information about a pet’s personality and behavior. You can be a part of finding a pet its perfect home.


You can be the bridge between homeless and home. Foster a dog today.
