The mission of the Humane Society of Richardson County is to prevent pain and cruelty, to place all adoptable animals in suitable homes, with the goal of zero euthanasia. To educate the community on the humane care and treatment of all animals, with emphasis on the importance of spaying/neutering.

  The HS of RC is an all volunteer orginization. It has no paid employees or salaried officers. The society receives no funding from local, state or federal governments. A building fund has been established to raise money for the construction of our new shelter, consequently our on site shelter facilities are limited to emergency stays at this time. Most animals are fostered in volunteers' homes or held at the city pound before finding permanent homes. Operating expenses are supported by tax deductible, voluntary contributions from the public. All money received is used solely for the animals.

Elected officers are:
Ardis Ramsey, President
Marian Vernon, Vice President
Julie Phroper, Secretary
Bernard Gerweck, Treasurer
Bev Kimmel, Chairwoman of the Board

If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them.
