Welcome to the Humane Society
“To lead the community in providing advocacy and care to prevent animal cruelty and overpopulation.”
Founded in 1953, The Humane Society of the Piedmont is non-profit organization dedicated to reducing pet overpopulation and euthanasia in the Piedmont Triad area. Our “Planned Pethood” low-cost spay/neuter clinic serves all area pet parents, people caring for free-roaming cats, animal shelters and rescue groups. We are leading the spay/neuter efforts to reduce the number of unwanted litters, the first step in lowering the number of animals unnecessarily euthanized in shelters each year. We also support pet owners in their time of need through our “Fill the Bowl” food program. The program provides pet food to pet owners who might otherwise have to surrender their pets to the animal shelter. In addition, we have obtained various grants and partnerships with organizations for spay/neuter financial assistance.
