Our Mission


The Humane Society of Sumner County (HSSC) is a small, private, non-profit (501c3) service organization that promotes the humane treatment of abandoned, lost, and displaced animals. HSSC provides temporary shelter, necessary medical attention & mandatory vaccinations, and sterilization to our incoming animals. Our adoption staff joins loving, qualified, and responsible people with these animals and works diligently to re-unite incoming lost animals with their guardians. HSSC encourages the public to help control the over-pet population through spay and neuter awareness. HSSC has diligently served this community since 1974 and is solely supported by donations.  The Humane Society of Sumner County is a private organization. We are not a government agency nor are we local animal control. To clarify, we are not affiliated with nor do we receive any funding from any national organization.
