• Mission

  • The mission of the Humane Society of Valdosta/Lowndes County (HSVLC) is to promote responsible pet ownership by teaching compassion, respect and caring treatment for all animals. The HSVLC advocates the elimination of animal abuse, pet overpopulation and homelessness among companion animals by promoting spaying and neutering of all pets, promoting adoptions, and by providing education and outreach to the community at large. We are a local non-profit animal welfare organization. HSVLC started in 1989 to be a voice for animals in our community. Our motto, "We speak for those who cannot speak for themselves" expresses our commitment to improve the lives of animals through rescue, education, and advocacy.
  • We are a private non-profit organization. Though we work with both the Humane Society of the United States and the Lowndes County Animal Shelter, we are not affiliated with either. 


    In order to fulfill our mission, we are developing programs and providing affordable resources to benefit all involved, the pets as well as their forever families.

  • We list all of our pets online to make it most convenient for a Forever Family to find their Forever Friend.

  • These pets have families that are being deployed from Moody AFB and need temporary care while they're away. This program absorbs the cost of feeding and caring for the pet until their family returns. It's our way of honoring our service men and women in their time of need.


    An affordable program for pet owners who have a Forever Friend needing spayed or neutered.


    A successful and humane way of controlling the feral cat population.
