On December 31st, 2017, we completed the first successful capital campaign in the Greenville Humane Society’s 87 year history. The campaign raised $3.3 Million to fund the construction of two new critical buildings: The Medical Center and The Healing Place. The campaign was completely dependent on contributions from individuals, Foundations and area companies. The Greenville Humane Society does NOT receive any government, United Way or national animal welfare funding.
- Campaign began March 2014 and ended on December 31st, 2017
- Added an additional 14,500 sq ft of space the majority of which is animal holding
- Expansion nearly tripled our capacity to take in animals
- Over 600 animals have been treated in our Healing Place since opening in September of 2017, 51 of which were nursing puppies and kittens.
- Increased capacity to perform more public spay/neuter surgeries helping to prevent pet overpopulation in our community. This in turn means fewer animals will be euthanized in the Upstate.
- Increased number of pets vaccinated for Rabies and other infectious diseases in our Vaccine Clinic, protecting the safety of people and owned pets in Greenville.
- Less stress and reduced overcrowding and congestion for pets and people.
- More comfortable and sanitary recovery space for owned pets that visit the affordable Spay/Neuter Clinic.
- Enlarged Vaccine Clinic Lobby and more exam rooms eliminating disturbances between animals.
