The Alleghany Humane Society is dedicated to saving homeless pets in our community and to providing assistance to pet owners in need.  We provide services for Alleghany County, city of Covington and towns of Clifton Forge and Iron Gate, Virginia.  Our shelter enables the area's animal population to be reunited with their owners and gives animals a second chance for adoption.  We promote responsible pet care and work toward ending pet overpopulation through spay/neuter assistance and education.  More than 1,000 companion animals were cared for at our shelter or received low cost spay/neuter assistance through programs we administered in 2023.  Low cost spay/neuter subsidy is available thanks to generous grant funds provided to our community by WestRock and other gracious organizations.  It is through the combined efforts of devoted board members, loyal staff, faithful volunteers, committed rescue partners, supportive businesses, and concerned citizens, that we have been successful.  

Mission statement:  The mission of this organization shall be to serve as a safe haven for stray or unwanted companion animals, educate the public about proper care and treatment of pets, advocate animal welfare, spay and neuter, and promote adoption to reduce pet homelessness.
