Worcester County Humane Society strongly believes in spaying and neutering.

Spaying and neutering stops unwanted behaviors in cats & dogs, helps control animal overpopulation, and saves lives. Every year. countless healthy animals are euthanized in shelters nationwide.

It has been brought to our attention that an article written in OC Today dated 7/13/18, titled “Wor. Co. Humane Society Nearly Maxed out with Cats” by Brian Gilliland contained a false statement. Mr. Gilliland incorrectly stated “The Worcester County Humane Society is a no-kill shelter, but if it finds itself overrun with certain animals, some of those animals are transferred to Worcester County Animal Control in Snow Hill, which does euthanize prospective pets of no owners can be found.”

The Worcester County Humane Society does not transfer animals to any animal organization, nor have we ever transferred animals to Worcester County Animal Control. When space is permitting, we gladly have accepted animals from Worcester County Animal Control, as well as other animal organizations. We will continue to help other organizations to the best of our ability.

I am a super cool dude. I am the office cat at the shelter. I love to help with paperwork and typing. I need insulin 2 times a day, but I am very good for my shots. I would love to have a home to snuggle with my people!
