About the Beaver County Humane Society

In 1947, Lois Glenn Wolfe convinced a group of her friends that Beaver County needed a humane society. After much hard work, the Beaver County Humane Society received its corporate charter as a non-profit, tax-exempt, charitable organization authorized to operate an animal shelter and to conduct all such business and activities regarding the interests of animals in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1950.

The Beaver County Humane Society is a non-profit organization that depends on philanthropic support to care for over 4,000 homeless animals annually. We receive no financial operating support from donations made to any regional or national animal welfare organizations, and we are not directly funded through local, state or federal tax dollars.

Leading the fight to combat animal overpopulation in Beaver County, the Humane Society plays a critical role in meeting our County’s changing needs. From providing comprehensive medical and convalescent care to community outreach and education, the Beaver County Humane Society is proud to embrace the community with open arms and animal-centered solutions.

Mrs. Wolfe died in 2004, at the age of 92, but her vision still lives on in the mission of the Beaver County Humane Society: “To protect all domestic animals by providing shelter and care; adoption services; investigation, correction or prosecution of cruelty or abuse situations; education programs; and promotion of the concepts of kindness and respect for all living creatures throughout our community.”
