We call this little guy Rascal. He is about 10 weeks old and just had surgery to repair a broken humerus after being hit by a car. Thanks to Allegheny Veterinary Services for their excellent care of him!
He will be recovering in foster care and not available for adoption for some time. But if you would like to help support the cost of his medical care, Rascal and we would really appreciate it!

City of Elkins Grants $5,000 to RCHS for TNVR Program -- Friday November 8th, 2019
City of Elkins Grants $5,000 to RCHS for TNVR Program
The City of Elkins presented the Randolph County Humane Society with a check for $5,000 for its Trap/Neuter/Vaccinate/Return (TNVR) program.

Randolph County Humane Society and City of Elkins Joint Press Release
November 8, 2019
The City of Elkins presented the Randolph County Humane Society with a check for $5,000 for its Trap/Neuter/Vaccinate/Return (TNVR) program. The program focuses on sterilizing and vaccinating community cats not owned by anyone.
This proven approach curbs reproduction, vaccinates against diseases, and reduces nuisance behaviors such as roaming, vocalizing, and property destruction exhibited by unsterilized cats.
In 2019 to date, RCHS has sterilized 32 cats within the city limits. This proposal will allow RCHS to TNVR approximately 65 more. Those cats will be identified through strategic analysis of the current waiting list and from data gathered through the shelter’s geo-tracking of existing colonies in order to result in the greatest impact on the population.
This effort is a demonstration of the City’s commitment to being a Humane City, a partnership agreed to in 2016 between the City and RCHS.
If you have questions about the program, please contact Shelter Manager Kelly Scheidegger at 304-636-7844.
RCHS Dedicates Earle Building -- Wednesday August 28th, 2019
RCHS Dedicates Earle Building
RCHS is proud to announce the dedication of The RCHS Earle Building!
This new addition to our facilities will allow potential adopters an opportunity to meet and interact with animals they are considering adopting in a more home-like setting rather than through a kennel door.
They'll be able to more easily visualize that animal in their own living room and be more likely to make that life-changing decision to adopt.
Thanks to Dick Earle, who remembered us in his will; this will be his legacy!
Check out the article and video from WBOY-TV 12 News to learn more!
