Founded in 1930, the Greenville Humane Society is a premiere no-kill facility that is nationally recognized for transforming the relationship between animals and the community through adoption, clinic, and outreach. Our mission: “As a no-kill facility, we work in partnership with our community to create an environment where all animals are treated with compassion and respect." Since 2011, the Greenville Humane Society has made its home in a new, award-winning facility that is a haven for homeless animals and an uplifting destination for pet-lovers and their families.

The Greenville Humane Society encompasses multiple departments that work together towards our common goal of reducing the number of homeless animals in the Greenville community.

Our Admissions and Adoption departments enable us to take in unwanted animals and find new homes for over 6,100 animals every year. As a no-kill shelter, all animals stay at our facility until they find their forever home; we do not place a limit on the amount of time our animals need to find their forever homes. We partner with 35 shelters with high euthanasia rates across 5 states to pull in animals as well – so both internally and externally, our strategy is enacted.

Our Foster department assists both Adoptions and Admissions by ensuring all sick animals are properly treated and that all animals are healthy before adoption. Over 2,200 animals are treated for minor to serious illnesses by our Foster department every year.

The Spay/Neuter Clinic, one of the largest in South Carolina, performs surgery on both public and shelter animals to help reduce the number of unwanted pets in our community. These surgeries are offered at a low cost to assist pet owners with services they may otherwise be unable to afford. GHS provides additional services and products at a reduced cost, such as the low cost Vaccine services, and medical supplies such as heartworm and flea prevention.

Finally, our Humane Education and Community Outreach programs help engage and educate the community on- and off-site about our mission and the responsibilities of pet ownership. There are three volunteer programs available to the public ages thirteen and above: Puppy Patrol, and Dog Walking, More than 300 dedicated volunteers devote their time each month to helping the animals and our community. We touch the lives of nearly 50,000 children and adults every year through education, and outreach.

The Greenville Humane Society is one of the largest no-kill animal shelters in the Southeast, finding homes for over 6,100 animals every year. The Greenville Humane Society provides many other services in addition to adoptions: we offer low cost spay/neuter services, low cost vaccines and preventative medications, and even grooming. The Greenville Humane Society is home to one of the largest Spay/Neuter clinics in the state of South Carolina; the clinic performs over 14,300 surgeries every year. The low-cost Vaccine Clinic serves over 18,000 people and their pets annually. Our Foster program treats over 2,200 sick and injured shelter animals every year. We foster ongoing relationships with almost 120 partner agencies through community outreach programs, which reach a total of over 50,000 people every year.

The Greenville Humane Society is successful in continuing to achieve our mission and provide quality, affordable services to the Greenville Community thanks to the hard work of just under 50 staff members, over 300 volunteers, and a hands-on, dedicated Board of Directors, consisting of 21 active members who serve 3-year terms.

1. The Greenville Humane Society currently collects a range of data to track our progress. Data we track on a weekly, monthly, and annual basis include: adoption numbers, spay/neuter surgeries performed, vaccine clinic customers served, number of volunteers, volunteer hours contributed, number of foster parents, foster volunteer hours contributed, and number of people reached through Community Outreach programs.

2. The Greenville Humane Society Board of Directors has compiled a 3-year Strategic Plan with Goal Champions. The progress made on these strategic goals is reported at the quarterly Board of Directors meetings.

3. The Greenville Humane Society tracks progress and growth in key functional areas: Adoptions, Spay/Neuter Clinic, Vaccine Clinic, retail store, and education/community outreach. We hold weekly staff meetings, monthly staff and Finance Committee meetings and the Executive Director reports quarterly to the Board of Directors.

4. Another indicator of our progress is the growth of our Facebook page. Our large Facebook presence helps engage our community and encourages followers to utilize our many services, adopt, foster, volunteer, or donate. In just 3 years, our Facebook page “likes" have grown from 5,000 to over 27,000.

There is a continuing and growing demand from the Greenville community for the services offered by the Greenville Humane Society. In order to increase and enhance all aspects of our services, we set goals in our Strategic Plan to be accomplished by the year 2021: 1. Build and optimize our physical and internal infrastructures to grow customer and donor relationships 2. Develop and implement a public relations and marketing strategy that creates and enhances a positive perception of the Greenville Humane Society brand 3. Evaluate and enhance the overall experience of the people and animals that we serve 4. Proactively create a network of partnerships that results in increased individual and corporate involvement

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
