Organized as a federally tax-exempt non-profit group in 1967, the HSHC has the mission of prevention of cruely to animals, relief of suffering among animals, prevention of pet overpopulation, aid of animal abuse investigation, and public education in the humane care and treatment of animals.
The Society is housed at 1901 Jefferson Ave., Marshall, Texas at “The Pet Place,” a new facility housing abandoned and homeless cats and dogs. Adoption of these pets is a key goal of the Society. Private and government grants are sought to fund pet spay/neuter for financially disadvantaged families. Public school tours and presentations, combined with newspaper and radio promotion, are key elements to a broad education strategy for good pet care.
A part-time facility director is the only paid personnel of the Society. Volunteers make the Society a viable and meaningful part of East Texas animal welfare.
