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.
- The Greenbrier Humane Society has been dealing with an upper respiratory disease in our cat population for the last 30 days. We have been working with an infectious disease specialist from Virginia Tech and local veterinarians to eradicate this disease. Unfortunately all efforts to both identify and treat the disease have failed.7 hours ago
Steps taken by the Greenbrier Humane Society have included vaccination upon intake and treatment of symptoms with antibiotics. When these measures failed we closed our facility for both cat intake and cat adoption in an effort to contain this disease process. We also instituted disease protocol to limit the exposure within out own facility.
It is with great sadness that we have to report that our cats continued to worsen in their symptoms.
We cannot humanely allow our cats to continue to suffer and so with the advice of local veterinarians we have made a decision of last resort which is to humanely euthanize our existing cat population.
Our facility will be closed for cat intakes for an indefinite period of time to undergo protocol that will protect our future cat population.
Our hearts go out to the homeless cats in our community and we ask that anyone who is able to take in a stray cat to do so.
We will remain open for dog intakes and adoptions as well as the issuing of spay/neuter vouchers in our efforts to continue to reduce the number of homeless cats and dogs in our community
