10 Commandments for Pet Ownership
Thank You for considering adoption from the
Humane Society of Richland County!
The dogs that we have here at our shelter have come from abused, abandoned, or neglected cases that our Humane Agents have pulled from situations. Some of them were born here or arrived as puppies so they have never experienced life in a loving home. Please understand that many of them will require patience due to their own unique circumstances. The staff is not able to be at the shelter 24/7, so they may not be housebroken or may have behavioral issues due to the long hours they spend in a cage.
The cats at the shelter have come in either stray, lost, or by owner surrender. We are a no-kill shelter here at the Humane Society of Richland County. Due to limited space at our shelter, we only take in cats by appointment so that we can ensure that we have adequate space and resources to care for them as best as possible. We currently have a waiting list for citizens of Richland County that need to surrender cats.
Please practice patience, love, and understanding with any shelter animal you adopt.

Slate was found wandering around with some neighborhood cats- he was already fixed so we think that he had a home at one point. He is super affectionate and loves to chit chat! He enjoys long naps on comfy beds and his favorite time is cuddle time! This guy wont let you down- take a chance on him!
(Cats who are infected with feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) may not show symptoms until years after the initial infection occurred. Although the virus is slow-acting, a cat’s immune system is severely weakened once the disease takes hold. This makes the cat susceptible to various secondary infections. Infected cats who receive supportive medical care and are kept in a stress-free, indoor environment can live relatively comfortable lives for months to years before the disease reaches its chronic stages.)
