Services We Offer

Spay/Neuter Program

Most of our money is used to have selected animals in the shelter spayed or neutered. This makes those selected animals even more adoptable. We have spay/neutered over 1400 dogs and cats to date and have adopted all of them. This program is constantly expanding.

Medical Assistance

The Chesterfield County Humane Society assists with medical and surgical procedures on an individual basis, as well as, providing care for animals housed at the shelter. In response to our drive to provide increased medical care to homeless animals several pharmaceutical companies and a local hospital have generously donated much needed supplies to support our efforts.

Remote Adoptions

Apart from the financial support for the medical needs of the animals at the Chesterfield Animal Control Shelter, remote adoptions are one of the next biggest activities of the Chesterfield County Humane Society. We assisted in twenty-four (24) offsite adoption events last year. One of our biggest events was the PetsMart Adoption. This helped immensely in reducing the numbers of homeless animals in the Chesterfield Animal Control Shelter. We are proud of these efforts but have higher goals. While doing these numerous remote events we have been amazed at the number of people that are unaware of the existence of the Chesterfield Animal Control Shelter and its efforts. CCHS purchased a Remote Adoption Trailer to adopt companion pets from the shelter. The trailer is capable of housing, supporting, and servicing off site adoptions, act as a mobile shelter or as a command post during a disaster situation.

Education

Chesterfield, as well as the Chesterfield Humane Society, believe education is key in achieving our combined goals. The Chesterfield County Humane Society provides on-going education before, during, and after the adoption process.

The Humane Society offers extensive education and assistance with developing responsible pet owners. We educate the public on the need to spay/neuter pets, how to care for pets, how to train or obtain training, and how to socialize pets.

Further materials are offered in our quarterly newsletter, our web site and an extensive selection of educational materials are now available at our Remote Adoption Center.

Shelter Volunteers

The Chesterfield County Humane Society has a number of volunteers that help out at the Chesterfield Animal Control Shelter every day to assist the county staff in many areas. Services provided include doing the laundry, grooming animals, and washing food bowls.
