Welcome to Murray County Humane Society!!!
Murray County Humane Society is 100% volunteer, 501c3 non profit, and GA licensed rescue group based in rural north Georgia. We take in owner surrender animals and shelter animals that would otherwise be euthanized. These animals are provided with necessary healthcare and vetting prior to being placed with loving, qualified families.
All of the fundraising, application reviewing, event planning, bathing and feeding along with transport of the animals in our care is done by volunteers who care about saving the lives of these animals. When opening their hearts isn't enough for some, they also open their homes to fostering those in need until they are adopted into their forever homes.
Accomplishing our goal of saving homeless pets with healthy, safe environment until they are adopted into loving homes requires funding to pay for food and medical needs of these rescued animals. All donated funds go directly to covering food and supplies, vet expenses and medical supplies, cleaning supplies and other overhead costs (utilities, webpage hosting, and printing of forms). Murray County Humane Society relies solely on donations and fundraising. We do not receive any government funding.
Now that you know more about us, hopefully you will join in our efforts of saving th
ese homeless pets. If you have any questions, please feel free to call & leave a message at 706-686-5555.
Nestled in the foothills of the Applachians, in a very rural part of north Murray County, Georgia, is the Murray County Humane Society Foster Care Facility. There are no signs depicting that this is a haven for the unwanted dogs and cats for fear that more will be tossed over the fence that surrounds the property. Hundreds of dogs and cats have passed through these doors...they are abandoned, neglected, and abused. If they could speak, each would have a story to tell.
At the foster facility, they receive the utmost of TLC while awaiting a forever home, transport to another rescue group, or for some, this is where they stay to live out the rest of their lives. Our goal is to provide a safe, loving environment for as many unwanted animals as we have the ability to save.
Our mission is to help the abandoned, neglected, and abused dogs and cats in our area and surrounding areas, educate the public in proper care of their pets, and to promote spay and neuter.
Animals are cared for at our foster facility until they are vet checked, spayed or neutered (if old enough), and up to date on vaccinations. Once they are given a clean bill of health, the adoption process begins. Every potential adopter, regardless of sex, age, race, or religion, will be required to fill out adoption application. All applications will be reviewed to determine if the best interests of the animal's needs are met. If the application is approved, a home visit will follow to verify the living arrangements will qualify for the animal. Once both application and home inspection have been approved, the potential adopter will then be given the opportunity to become part of the pet's life.
