Over the last 3-4+ years the HSMC has been conducting Trap/Neuter/Release. The HSMC is in the process of developing a progressive TNR program.
Funds for this program is shared with the HSMC low-cost Spay/Neuter program. The goal is the same, reduce unwanted animal population.
Not only is the HSMC dependent on grant money and donations to fulfill TNR needs, but we need equipment and volunteers. If we have more of each of these, we can fix more feral cats faster and offer them a better life. Yes, feral cats are on their own yet they can still live a good feral cat life. Our Cat Barn team decided to help them along the way by providing one meal per day when cat food donations are available and winter shelter if they will use it. If we see an injury and can try to help.
By fixing as many cats as possible and then maintaining a feed station, we can keep a watch on their health, new additions to the colony for additional TNR, and general well-being. We need community volunteers to help feed the cats. Food donations are also welcome.
The Humane Society of McCormick County was formed to help McCormick County, South Carolina residents and animals. The HSMC is comprised entirely of volunteers whose mission is to prevent cruelty to animals, to provide shelter and care for lost and unwanted animals, to implement educational programs and services, to place animals in humane environments, and to promote responsible pet ownership including spay and neuter. The HSMC is always looking for dedicated, animal-loving volunteers.
The Humane Society of McCormick County is an all-volunteer, no-kill animal rescue. We are the sole source of animal care because McCormick County has no cit or county-run shelter, or veterinarians. We are completely depend upon local donations and private grants to support our efforts to save the lives of homeless dogs and cats in our community. We are a non-profit so donations are tax-deductible. We offer a low-cost or no-cost spay and neuter program for any dog or cat in our county in an effort to humanely reduce the number of unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats.
