We're excited that you are considering adopting a pet from the Humane Society of Parkersburg! We're excited for you to begin your search for a new best friend! And we're excited for our animals who have a chance to find the loving, forever home they so deserve!
We have amazing animals waiting to meet you at our Shelter! As an open admission shelter, we receive thousands of animals each year, so we have lots of dogs and cats of all ages, sizes and breeds. One of which is bound to be just right for you and your lifestyle! And if you have a particular breed in mind, you might be surprised to find that almost 25% of the dogs in our Shelter are purebred. And occasionally we have other furry friends....like rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets and maybe a bird to two.
If you don't know exactly what sort of pet you're looking for, please consider your lifestyle, available time and energy when selecting a pet. You may want to read Things to Consider Before Adopting to help you in your decision process.
Beyond having a new best friend to share your home and life with, there are many benefits to adopting an animal from the Humane Society of Parkersburg. When you adopt you are:
Opening up your home to a homeless pet that is ready to give a lifetime of unconditional love and affection!
Helping counter the pet overpopulation crisis that leaves millions of animals without homes and proper care each year. Our Shelter alone receives almost 4500 homeless animals every year that need a loving home like yours!
Helping to support the thousands of animals we are for.
Choosing NOT to support the cruel and inhumane practices of puppy mills, pet stores and other breeders whose first consideration is money and not the well-being of the animals.
Supporting the dedication and hard work of our Staff, who work passionately to care for the unwanted, neglected and abused animals from our community.
Taking advantage of the incredible adoption programs which includes so much for a great value. See our Adoption Fees and all that they include.
We hope you'll come soon to meet all our animals and find that special pet to complete your family. And so you know what to expect when you make that visit, read about Our Adoption Process. Regardless, come visit soon and be prepared to fall in love!
