The Floyd County Humane Society's mission is:

To advocate and provide for the welfare, protection, and humane treatment of companion animals in Floyd County, VA. Its objectives and activities in support of this mission are:

  • To reduce the population of stray and unwanted pets by promoting and providing access to low-cost spay-and-neuter services;
  • To maintain a stabilized population of feral cats in the county by augmenting and participating in community-based Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs;
  • To assume comprehensive custodial care for as many homeless companion animals as possible – including strays, owner-surrendered, and those taken in by Animal Control – through temporary sheltering and fostering by our volunteer base;
  • To facilitate the permanent placement of animals in our care through the operation of a vigorous adoption program, including on-line promotion, community adoption events, and thorough screening of applicants;
  • To support the community in the humane and healthy treatment of their pets through such programs as low-cost vaccination clinics, distribution of free pet food through the area food pantry, free identification collars, and an emergency medical fund;
  • To heighten the community's awareness of existing challenges with the pet population and together implement solutions via robust online and print informational outreach.


In 2009, the FCHS petitioned the local Board of Supervisors for access to the local pound, so we could foster or transport dogs to other rescues. This action saved more than 100 dogs from euthanasia that year. Because of our continued involvement, the county’s euthanasia rate has dropped from 57% to 7.7%.

2020 Accomplishments and Statistics

  • FCHS rescued 318 dogs and cats (144 dogs and 174 cats) - almost twice as many dogs and cats as in 2019! 54 dogs were rescued from the Floyd County Animal Pound.
  • FCHS adopted out 97 dogs and 151 cats. (The rest were transferred to other rescues leaving us with 12 dogs and 16 cats in foster care as of Dec. 31, 2020.)
  • FCHS donated over 8,200 pounds of pet food to Plenty! food bank in 2020.


Thank you for your support! We cannot do our important work without the support of our community!
