About Us

The Taylor County Humane Society (TCHS) is a non-profit organization that has been in operation since the year 2000.  It is run solely by volunteers in conjunction with two county dog wardens.  TCHS is dedicated to finding permanent, loving homes for the animals coming into our public shelter in Grafton, WV.   We are also committed to educating the public about spaying and neutering to stop pet over-population, and teaching how to provide the best possible care for pets.


In partnership with the Audubon Animal Clinic of Bridgeport, WV, we offer a Spay/Neuter Voucher Program for dogs and cats within Taylor County. If you are located in Taylor County, you may apply for a voucher to assist you with the cost of spaying/neutering your dog or cat in the amount of $20.
