The Henrico Humane Society (HHS) is dedicated to working within the greater Richmond community to end animal overpopulation and ensure that all animals receive proper care.
Henrico Humane Society (HHS) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization incorporated in 1991 to address the enormous number of homeless animals in the greater Richmond area. HHS is run entirely by volunteers and has no paid staff. The organization relies upon donations, adoption fees, and fund-raising efforts to support its programs.
HHS takes in strays found in the community, rescues animals from shelters, and accepts pets surrendered by owners who can no longer care from them. The majority of these animals are kept in temporary foster homes until permanent, loving homes can be found for them.
Thanks to the hundreds of hours worked by volunteers and generous donations from concerned supporters, the organization raises sufficient funds to provide for the hundreds of animals cared for each year. HHS is very proud of its accomplishments, and is dedicated to maintaining its service to the community and homeless animals.
