Adopting from Henrico Humane Society
HHS values the relationship between owner and pet, and strives to find a good fit for both. Also, we know it is difficult to resist the lure of a tiny kitten or an adorably sweet puppy, but it is important to remember that adopting an animal is a lifelong commitment. That is why we take the process of adopting very seriously.
We purposely don’t have a shelter, opting to provide foster homes for our rescued cats and dogs so that our volunteers can get to know the animals on a personal level. This one-on-one involvement provides our adoption counselors with ample information to work with adopters to find the right pet for their home and lifestyle.
Our wish for every pet adopted from Henrico Humane Society (HHS) is that their new home be a permanent one; however, we understand that situations can arise. It is our policy that pet owners first contact HHS so that we can assess the situation. Whenever possible, HHS will rehome the pet. Our goal is to ensure the happiness, care, and safety of all parties involved.
The first step in the adoption process is to find an animal that you’d like to meet. We have both adult cats and dogs, and kittens and puppies to choose from. What are you waiting for? Take the first step!
Henrico Humane Society is a 100% volunteer organization. Instead of housing cats and dogs in cages in a shelter, our animals enjoy the luxury of living in loving foster homes. We pay for all living and medical expenses, asking only that fosters open their homes and hearts to rescue animals.
If you’re interested in becoming a foster, please fill out an application today!
Henrico Humane Society, a not-for-profit 501(c) 3 organization, relies on the generosity of donors to meet our financial obligations, which include our annual veterinary costs. These costs rise when we take in sick or injured animals. Donations are tax deductible and every cent goes toward the care of a rescue animal.
Please consider making a donation today.
It takes a lot of hands to successfully run a non-profit. If you’re not ready to dive into the world of fostering, we have many other volunteer opportunities ranging from helping with events to helping transport animals. Whatever your specialty, we probably have a need for it and would love to have you on the team.
