The Floyd County Humane Society plans to move out of the rented location we’ve called home for so many years by obtaining land and constructing our own animal shelter. To continue to meet our ambitious yet attainable mission, a new facility will help us cut costs and maximize donations toward the highest quality animal care including, medical care and socialization for the rescues.
We are currently looking for a Super Hero who will donate approximately 5 acres of land to our 501c3 organization located as near town as possible with easy access. We need someone that is just as passionate about our cause and community as we are. We want to find a hero that would consider donating the land to catapult the project to the next phase and push us closer to realizing our dreams of doing more for the Floyd community and our homeless animal friends. A central location will afford FCHS the opportunity to locate our activities and programs to one site resulting in a more efficient operation, and more effective use of resources and volunteers. If you can’t donate land, monetary donations are appreciated. Please designate your check “new shelter”.
We continue to feel the love and passion from donors and volunteers as they use their talents, time, and money to support our continued efforts to rescue and house cute puppies & kittens, homeless and abandoned dogs & cats, and those left behind from unforeseen circumstances.
Please reach out to Sarah at 540-250-5252 if you have any questions or would like to become our Super Hero!

Our accomplishments in 2016
Thanks to the support of the caring friends of the Floyd County Humane Society, we have been able to find ‘forever’ homes for 148 cats and dogs!
We have reduced companion animal overpopulation through our spay/neuter program, giving assistance with 437 spays and neuters in 2016, including 243 feral cats (an increase of 104)!
We have reduced the number of dogs at the County pound from a high in 2005 of 1,035 with a euthanasia rate of 57% to 185 with 5.4% euthanized in 2016-one of the lowest in VA & half of last year! Our sponsorship of two community Rabies Clinics allowed 155 dogs and cats to be vaccinated, thereby preventing the spread of this deadly disease!
Through our partnership with Plenty! Food Bank, over 6 tons of pet food has been donated to assist needy families in keeping their pets! That is double the amount of last year!
