The Herkimer County Humane Society (HCHS) is a not-for-profit organization, NOT a county run agency, funded primarily through donations. We depend almost entirely on volunteers and community support. Volunteers help in every aspect of the Humane Society: fundraising, education, membership, newsletters, finances, publicity, shelter improvements, animal care, and grant writing. We welcome the participation of those willing to represent our organization in accordance with our values.
