Help the animals of the Twin County area!

Become a Member

Becoming a member of the Twin County Humane Society will support the work that our volunteers do to help the animals of the Twin County Region. TCHS operates the only community cat Trap-Neuter-Return program in the region. We also provide assistance with food for community cat colonies, subsidize spay/neuter costs and emergency medical care for owned pets as funds are available, and work to find homes and medical care for homeless animals. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization and all membership fees are tax deductible and used locally.

Personal memberships extend for the calendar year and range in cost from $15 for senior or student memberships to $100 for patron memberships. All members may receive a TCHS sticker if they would like one. Patrons are also eligible to receive a TCHS hat or T-shirt if they would like. But even more importantly, you get to be part of a community that is helping the animals in Twin County! 

Local business sponsorships also extend for the calendar year and range from $100-$1,000. All business sponsors will receive recognition as a sponsor on our website if they would like. If your business is interested in hosting an event, hosting a donation box, or providing in-kind donations in lieu of financial sponsorship, please contact us – we would love to partner with you! 

You may also purchase a gift membership for a friend or loved one. The recipient will receive a card letting them know of your kind and thoughtful gift, along with a brochure and sticker. 

Check out our application for details or feel free to call us at 276-779-9418 if you have questions or would like more information.

Become a Pet Foster Parent

Becoming a pet foster parent saves lives. It’s fun, it’s rewarding, and it’s also a serious commitment. If you have pets in your home, we will need to ensure that that they are up to date on all vaccinations and parasite treatment or prevention, and are spayed and neutered. We will also need to know about the type of home you live in and whether your own or rent, and if you have enough space for your foster pet.

In addition to providing love and support, fostering also involves providing food, litter, and other incidentals (we will supply these items as we can, and will also handle vet bills and other big expenses). Some transport duties will also be needed, mostly to the veterinarian and back for routine care.

Fostering is a rewarding, enjoyable experience that directly and measurably helps to save the lives of animals throughout the Twin County Region.
