Thanks for visiting!


The Pickens County Humane Society is a nonprofit organization filed under a 501 (c)(3), chartered for the prevention of animal cruelty. The shelter opened in 1973 to provide a refuge for stray and unwanted pets and to eliminate animal suffering and overpopulation through public education. The shelter took in 537 animals for the year 2016, and our goal is to find perfect homes for them all.

Shelter Mission:

Shelter Services:

  • To provide a refuge for stray and unwanted pets.
  • All pets will be spayed or neutered and have Rabies vaccinations.
  • To provide suitable homes for these animals.
  • To provide educational materials for the public.

boxer mix, female, 2-3 years old. Very sweet girl, loves attention, playful. Apple does not like most other dogs, so an "only dog home" is preferred.


Domestic short hair, female (spayed), 4 years old, litter trained, good with other cats. Super sweet girl but can be a little shy. Mature home probably best suited.


     hound mix, male, adult. Henry is very sweet, good with people and kids, but he does not get along well with other dogs.
