In the summer of 1977, Jane Arey, a member of the Humane Society of Rowan County, published a note in The Dispatch asking if anyone was interested in creating a Humane Society for Davidson County. Corinne "Corky" Briggs, Vicky Green, and Becky Everhart responded to her note. A handful of people attended the September meeting that was scheduled, and the Humane Society of Davidson County was born. Corky worked tirelessly for the HSDC until her death in 1997. Becky continues to be an active member.
As noted on the introductory page, The Humane Society of Davidson County is an all volunteer organization dedicated to the welfare of animals. For more than 35 years, the HSDC has worked to reduce the pet overpopulation problem and alleviate animal suffering. We have educated the public about the needs of animals, and promoted laws that benefit animals. Over the years, we have saved the lives of thousands of unwanted puppies and kittens, thereby working to reduce the serious problem of overpopulation.
We are governed by a set of by-laws that elects officers yearly.
We have a board of five members.
Our current board is:
DEBI MILLS - Lexington, NC
The Humane Society of Davidson County would like to offer a special "THANK YOU" to two young ladies who have worked with us to earn their Girl Scout's Silver Award. Together, Christina Mills and Maggie Faulk collected hundreds of dollars and pounds of pet food for us. They have also volunteered at our Pet Food Pantry, Roadblock Fundraiser, and Horse Show. We appreciate their help so much and are proud of their love of animals!
We do not receive funds from the city or county government. The Humane Society of Davidson County has been fortunate to earn the support of many compassionate people over the years. We hope you will continue to help us by supporting programs that help our efforts, contributing to our building campaign, participating in our fundraisers, and spreading good news about us to all of your friends and family.
