Helping Them Home.

Nestled in the beautiful mountains of Pike County you will find an oasis for stray, unwanted and abused pets. Unlike a traditional shelter, you will see dogs playing with one another, sleeping cuddled together on blankets and beds, and living just as they would in any loving home.

The PCHS Mission Statement

The mission of the Pike County Humane Society is to prevent cruelty to animals by educating people in the humane treatment of all animals. To educate and indoctrinate society and individuals on the intricacies of having and owning pets by explaining the responsibility endowed by such ownership. To provide shelter, food, care and medical treatment as needed for the lost, abandoned, abused and unwanted animals that come under our care. To evaluate prospective adoptees and to find good homes for the animals we care for. To educate people in the importance of spay and neuter programs and to function as an agent by making available a low cost spay and neuter program to address the overwhelming unwanted animal population. To offer cooperation and assistance to appropriate authorities to investigate and prosecute animal cruelty, abuse and neglect.


"Animals are the bridge between us and the beauty of all that is natural. They show us what's missing in our lives, and how to love ourselves more completely and unconditionally. They connect us back to who we are, and to the purpose of why we're here."

Trisha McCagh
