The Harris County Humane Society is a licensed, non-profit organization that rescues homeless animals, cares for them and works to get them adopted. We are currently in a temporary location and are raising funds to build a shelter in Harris County. Several people from St. Nicholas are volunteering by cleaning the shelter, fostering dogs, working at Dog Gone Good Bargains in Pine Mountain and  PetSmart on Saturday. We will all tell you it is the most rewarding work we have ever done. If you can help contact Linda Sawyer, Volunteer Coordinator  at 706-582-3813 or You can also find more information about the Humane Society on their Facebook Page.
