Pickens County Humane Society is a non-profit organization that opened in 1972. PCHS's mission is to provide a refuge for stray and unwanted pets, to eliminate animal suffering and overpopulation through public education and to find the most suitable, forever home for each pet.

Pickens County Humane Society has goals of enhancing the program by growing services and providing more resources for the community

  • PCHS became a NO-Kill facility in 2014

  • PCHS takes in 700-1,000 pets per year

  • PCHS receives more "owner surrender" animals vs. "stray" animals

  • PCHS is a NON-County operated facility and thrives only on donations

  • PCHS animals are accepted with the goal to restore health, socialize, and find the most suitable adoptive home

"Saving lives, one             pet at a time" 

Our focus here at PCHS isn't just finding adoptive homes, but rather finding the most suitable, forever home for the pets in our program!
