Hanover Humane Society
The Hanover Humane Society was organized in July 1986, and with the support of the public, raised $20,000 toward the construction of the new County Pound, which opened in 1990. Hanover Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organizaiton. They are NOT affiliated with Animal Control or the County Pound. Animals enter their system either as strays, owner surrenders, or from the Hanover County Pound. These animals are given medical care, spayed or neutered, then placed in a foster home, and brought to adoption stands and given visibility on their website until they find a “forever” home.
The Hanover Humane Society strives to educate the public on many topics including spay/neuter and proper treatment of animals. This is done through brochures, public speaking, and participating in many events each year that provide them with visibility. The organization is funded through donations from the public and by holding fundraisers.
