Keep The Animals Alive: Keep HB 869 Alive!So much is at stake now for the animals of Pennsylvania. HB 869 is the most comprehensive animal protection bill in the history of PA, according to Governor Wolf. While the bill unanimously passed the Senate, opposition prevented a vote in the full House of Representatives. We need your support — now more than ever — to encourage House Leadership to run HB 869 on November 14!

HB 869 has the power to have convicted animal abusers forfeit custody of their pets. The bill includes amendment SB 1372, Libre’s Law, which will increase penalties for heinous acts of animal cruelty. It also includes SB 294, Cordelia’s Law, which will add protection for horses and an anti-tethering legislation that would limit the time an animal can be tied up outside and in extreme weather.

Despite a majority of support in the House, opposition prevented a vote on HB 869. The Senate voted to move this legislation forward, but we must continue our staunch efforts to keep it moving through the House.

It’s imperative for EVERYONE to contact their state representatives and ask them to encourage House leadership to run the bill on November 14!

The Humane Society of Greene County Pennsylvania is a non-profit organization that exists solely on donations. The number of lost, abandoned, and abused animals that come through the doors every year is 1,300! We are far above the national average in the number of animals we save every year!

We are always in need of good quality dog food, and now, cat food as well. Many of the animals that come to us are badly undernourished. The quality of food is important in their recovery. There is a drop box outside our facility where donations can be left during hours that the shelter is not open. Please consider feeding an animal in need. Just look at the results we are getting!

The Humane Society is happy to take used dog boxes or dog houses. You can drop them off near our front gate, even if the shelter is not open. Humane Police Officers use dog houses for needy dogs in their care. If you had more dogs at one time than you now have, we are happy to reduce the clutter around your home by recycling your used dog house, box, or cage.

We now need a used or new garbage disposal.

Thank You !

Your used ink jet or laser printer cartridges can help the Humane Society. Turn them in to us at the shelter, or at the Humane Society bin at the Waynesburg Giant Eagle, and we can get money for them to use for animal care. We can accept all but Epson cartridges. You can clear out your home or office, recycle to reduce waste, and help the Society, all in one simple act. Contact the shelter for more information.
