The Isle of Wight County Humane society is an all volunteer organization that promotes responsible pet care and the humane treatment of animals in our local community.  Humane Societywoman with cat members take in homeless and unwanted animals and provide them with foster care and medical treatment.  When the animals are healthy and socialized, they are adopted out to permanent homes. Our pet adoption program is very successful and we find homes for hundreds of dogs and cats each year.


pawpawMost of our animals will have already been spayed/neutered. Every prospective new pet owner must complete an Adoption Interview and if accepted complete our Adoption Contract and submit the appropiate payment.

adoption This adoption took place at the Smithfield Gardens Flower Festival. His new family had come to buy flowers, but saw the puppies and couldn't resist taking one home. We think the puppy will be very happy with them ! The puppy was born at the Isle of Wight County shelter and transferred to Isle of Wight Humane Society foster care a few days later. His mother was "Pandora" who also was placed in her "forever home" on June 28th 
adopted cat A happy adoption of a cat at PetSmart in August 2009. This kitty was originally from a ferral colony.

Marty Another of Pandora's puppies going home his new family. Marty and Penny have two other dogs at home, so this big guy will have two older "sisters" to show him the ropes. This is the family's second adoption from Isle of Wight Humane ! They are great pet parents and we just love them.
Hi, We just wanted to let you know how happy we have been with the kitten we adopted last year in May 2008. His name is Max (gray tabby) just as you had named him and he is a joy. We wanted to let the volunteer that we adopted him from at Pet Smart (she had kept him at her home as a kitten ) how well he has fit in here. I am enclosing some photos of him and Niki our black female we adopted from Gloucester Matthews Humane Society just this May '09. He thinks he is her Mom and they are the best of pals. Thank you again for the wonderful job you do. We recommend you to all our friends.

Blessings, Felton & Jeannie Johnson
Sparkes with dog
sparkles with cat
I just wanted to send her a couple of photos of Sparkles, since I spoke with a volunteer (Dawn Morris) about Sparkles recently at the PetSmart.
She had told me that Sparkles didn't like other animals, and although she doesn't normally seek out the other furkids at our house, as you can see by the photos, she gets along with them just fine.
Thanks for your diligent efforts.  The other orange kitty in one of the photos is Hoppy, who is also an adoptee from Isle of Wight.
