Welcome to the Randolph County Humane Society!

For more than 50 years, RCHS has been committed to helping abandoned, abused, neglected, and homeless animals in Randolph County, West Virginia and surrounding areas.

As a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, we rely on the generosity of the public to help us with our work. There are many ways you can help us help the animals—including adoptingsponsoring or fostering a pet; donating money or supplies; or volunteering with RCHS. Please contact us with any comments or questions!​

February 22, 2023: Response from RCHS Board of Directors to Randolph County Commission’s Announcement of a New Animal Control Facility



RCHS is committed to maintaining a safe, healthy environment for our clients and our staff. To accomplish that, we are a no-handshake zone, and we maintain a 6-foot distance from one another and our clients.

Effective March 27, 2020, we are implementing appointment-based adoption and intake services. Please call ahead to talk with our staff about your needs. We will then schedule an appointment with you.

If you would like to bring a donation, please call us from the parking lot (304-636-7844) and we will meet you outside.

If you or members of your family have been required or asked to be quarantined for any reason, or test positive for COVID-19, and you have visited our facility within 72 hours, we kindly ask you to please alert our staff.

Above all, please stay healthy!
