Worth Knowing: Sullivan County Humane Society
There are lots of nonprofits in the Upper Valley doing lots of things. We think it's worth knowing what the missions of these organizations are and who runs them.
Mission: The Sullivan County Humane Society is committed to improving the quality of life for animals within our county and to putting an end to animal overpopulation, abandonment, and neglect. Through responsible adoptions we will find homeless animals new forever homes. Through humane education we will teach responsible ownership. Through low cost spay/neuter programs aimed at both owned pets and free roaming cats, we will limit the number of litters born in our county and therefore decrease the numbers surrendered to the shelter. Through assistance to low-income families, we will help pets remain in their forever homes.
