The Greenville Humane Society opened its doors in 1937 as the South Carolina Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SCSPCA). Over the years, we have helped unite over 250,000 people in the upstate with previously unwanted animals.
Our mission is to promote and improve the quality of life and humane treatment of animals. Methods for accomplishing this mission include reducing the unwanted animal population by placing them into homes and spaying or neutering the animals we receive, educating the public, encouraging responsible pet ownership, eliminating animal cruelty and suffering, and seeking support for animal welfare legislation.
The Greenville Humane Society is a no-kill humane organization. We treat all animals in our Adoption Center like any loving pet owner would. We do not euthanize animals due to capacity limits at our facility or the length of an animal’s stay. All animals in the Greenville Humane Society Adoption Center remain on our floor until they are adopted.
The Greenville Humane Society follows the ASPCA’s guidelines on euthanasia: it is to be resorted to only when necessary in sparing an animal further hardship and suffering. Occasionally an animal will require euthanasia if it is determined to be too sick to recover to a life of quality, or if its aggressive behavior is a danger to human safety. The Greenville Humane Society is dedicated to providing a loving home for each and every animal that comes through our doors.
As a non-profit organization that receives no United Way or government funding, the Greenville Humane Society is completely dependent on contributions from the public and private sector. Contributions are tax-deductible.mal cruelty and suffering, and seeking support for animal welfare legislation.

Thanks so very much to the many people who have helped Bambi!
This story is so wonderfully poignant for all to appreciate.
Sir William is the perfect match for our family! Thanks for taking such good care of him until we came by to adopt :)
