How far is Contoocook, New Hampshire from Waynesburg, Pennsylvania?  It’s 690 miles or 11 hours and 44 minutes.  That’s a long way – but not for Michelle Hilton who fell in love and drove all that way to pick up the new love of her life, Alice.Alice2

Alice arrived at our shelter the week before and was in poor condition.  She was diagnosed as being diabetic and had cataracts in both eyes limiting her eyesight severely.  If the cataracts were removed, Alice would regain her sight.  It was imperative to find Alice the right Forever home as soon as possible so her medical care could begin.

Meanwhile, back in Contoocook, Michelle Hilton was cruising in the internet and saw Alice on our website.  She immediately fell in love.  “I connected with her right away even though we’d never met in person.  I just knew.” says Hilton.  Michelle found our adoption application online, completed it and faxed it to us.  In accordance with our policy of checking references on all adopters, her veterinarian references were checked and Michelle’s application was approved.  We called Michelle to let her know and she was delighted.  She began planning her trip to Waynesburg – a trip that would take her several days.

The moment finally arrived and Michelle Hilton, her niece Ariel, and one of their other canine family members, Pixie walked through the door.   When staff brought  Alice into the lobby, Michelle immediately scooped Alice into her  arms and hugged her tight and announced that Alice would now be known as “Paris Hilton”.  It was a dream come true for the  new Miss Paris Hilton.

Alice’s Forever Home had finally arrived.  Happy Endings do happen.    But it doesn’t end  there, yes more good news.  While visiting that day, Michelle fell in love with another dog whom she adopted too.  Pierre would also make the return trip home with the Hiltons.

Happy endings and new beginning do happen.  Please visit our website at  Also friend us on Facebook to  keep in touch with what’s  going on.  Who knows,  maybe you’ll meet your new best friend there too!.hilton

Buy A Brick

Each brick is engraved with the name of a person, family, or institution who has given us support

Some of our supporters participate in our Buy a Brick program. There is a brick wall at the shelter, and for $100 you can add a brick to it. The brick will have an inscription of your choosing. This is a good way to present your family to other animal lovers, memorialize someone who loved animals, or put the name of your business in front of the public. Go to the Buy a Brick page to find out more about this way to support the Humane Society of Greene County.

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!

Our push to get animals adopted by Christmas is over, but our work is never done. We always have cats and dogs available for adoption at the Humane Society. In fact, this cold winter makes it even more important that we find homes for them, because there are many domestic animals struggling to survive in a world where they cannot live in the wild. We need your financial support, but, just as much, we need you to adopt an animal and tell your friends about us. Don’t go to strangers, darling, come to me, because I Will Always Love You (take a look at this video).

The Humane Society, in conjunction with Greene County Community Service, is building houses or boxes for needy dogs and cats. The Humane Society is accepting donations of used or new 2 x 4 boards, sheet lumber, and wooden doors for this project. Should you have questions, call the Humane Society at 724-627-9988. This is a way for our supporters to clear out their garages, barns, and basements while helping both their neighbors and their neighbors’ pets. This is a project that costs little but will deliver a lot for some of the animals in our county.
