The Humane Society of Raleigh County, Inc. is a non-profit organization, which has been serving people and pets since 1979. Its mission is to prevent animal abuse and neglect. Located in Beckley, West Virginia, the animal shelter staff provides adoption opportunities and public education. The shelter has transitioned from euthanizing 80 percent of the animals housed there to euthanizing none, just over two years ago. With this change in philosophy, the shelter’s operating costs have increased exponentially.
