The Greenbrier Humane Society was established in 1965, and incorporated in 1986 as a non-profit organization. Since its formation, the GHS has grown with the needs of the rural communities it serves. The Greenbrier Humane Society coordinates several programs. These programs include the spay/neuter program, adoption, lost & found and educational programs with area schools.


Our Mission Statement

The Primary mission of the Greenbrier Humane Society is to protect animals from neglect, abuse and exploitation: to advocate for their interest and welfare: and to inspire awareness and compassion for all living things.

We received an extra special package in the mail yesterday! Students at Springfield Middle School and E. Russel Middle School in Maryland made cute and creative homemade toys and sent them to our resident cats and dogs. Our animals absolutely love them! Thanks so much to everyone involved with the project! ❤🐾
