The volunteers of the Floyd County Humane Society are so happy that our dream of a shelter of our own is becoming a reality!

Since its inception in 2000, The Floyd County Humane Society (FCHS) operated without a shelter and depended entirely on foster homes and rented kennel space. Due to a generous donation from the Ted and Shirley Birkeland estate, FCHS was able to purchase property in Floyd County in 2020. The property came with an existing house which FCHS volunteers worked to renovate over the last year. FCHS passed state inspection this past summer and brought cats to this location in July. 

Through an additional generous donation, the FCHS installed a prebuilt temporary dog shelter adjacent to the existing house. We brought dogs here in October. The two buildings make it possible to centralize the care of both dogs and cats for the first time ever while we continue to work toward a new permanent shelter. The new shelter will likely take two or more years to complete and will be located behind the existing house. 

Be a part of this exciting project and help build a safe, healthy facility for the future! Please check our website for updates and more information - https://www.floydhumanesociety.org/
