The Floyd County Humane Society's mission is:
-To promote responsible pet ownership with a focus on spaying and neutering domestic dogs and cats;
-To support community trap-neuter-release programs for feral cats;
-To promote adoptions of homeless cats and dogs;
-To heighten our community's awareness of existing problems involving domestic and feral cats and dogs and, together, to implement solutions to these problems;
-To cooperate and share resources with other Humane Societies and similar organizations in our region; and
-To be a voice for all animals in Floyd County, and for the people who care about them.
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%.
