Welcome to our Shelter!
Welcome to our Shelter and our website! We hope you will take time to check out not only our beautiful animals but also our site where you will find information about our animals, how to help -- whether by donating or volunteering. You can also find out about other services we offer to animals in need in our community. Transportation to the spay and neuter clinic in Parkersburg and regular vaccine clinics around our area.
We welcome and work with rescue groups, so if your group is interested in helping save animals from our shelter please email us at and Heather will be happy to help you!

The Ritchie County Humane Society is located just outside of Harrisville, West Virginia. We provide sheltering for unwanted animals in our county and also provide animal control services in conjunction with local law enforcement.
We are an open admission shelter which means we do not turn animals away because of breed, age or medical condition. We accept owned and stray animals from Ritchie County.
Board meetings held the 2nd Monday of every month at the Shelter at 5:30 pm. The public is welcome to attend.
