Greenville Humane Society is one of the charities that Greenville Newcomers is supporting this year and I am the philanthropy co chair. Yesterday I coordinated a tour of the new facility which is about 10,000 sq. feet. We had a dozen people on the tour and our guide Paula Church had our complete attention, that is until we got to the kittens and puppies.
It is a no kill shelter and adopts out about 5000 animals a year. Impressive what they are doing to keep the place very clean and safe for the animals. They also provide to the general public vet services, medicine, toys, pet grooming at very affordable prices. They even have “Yappy Hour” once a month to bring people together. You can also put in your request for a particular breed or type of size and they will contact you when one comes in that meets your criteria. A couple people on the tour were very interested in that. There was one little black 8 week old female kitten that really liked me but Bob, Smoky and Sabrina made me promise I would not come home with another cat. She was so sweet.
I would say it is an award winning facility and one that other shelters could learn from. Smoky and Sabrina were adopted from their old building. As you can see they stay close by and keep me company.
