Valley River Humane Society – Marble, NC

Valley River Humane Society is a non-profit volunteer organization with the primary goal of reducing the number of homeless animals in our community by the promotion of spay and neutering, and by the adoption of homeless animals into safe and loving homes.

To that end, the Valley River Humane Society (VRHS) has established and maintains a shelter for the humane care of homeless, stray, unwanted, and helpless animals.

We have a wonderful facility staffed by caring individuals whose sole purpose is to help orphaned animals find a forever home. Today many of these animals have either been rescued or owner surrendered, often due to the economy.

Of course, we could not do the things we do without volunteers. There are so many areas where you can make a difference. And, we truly appreciate the support our community has given to our cause.

Valley River Humane Society (VRHS) was founded in 1969 as the Cherokee Humane Society. The initial Shelter and Thrift Store were located on county property at the old landfill on Fairview Road in Marble. In 1997, VRHS received $250,000 from the estate of Lillian Clifford which was used to purchase 12.5 acres in Marble off Hwy 74 and build the present Shelter facility.

The VRHS Shelter in Marble, NC is supported by DONATIONS of caring citizens, VOLUNTEERS who give their time and by proceeds from our Thrift Store. We invite you to visit our facility and see for yourself the result of the hard work by our staff and VOLUNTEERS. Become a member of VRHS and share in our goals of Animal Adoptions, Spay & Neuter program, Animal control and to provide a safe and healthy environment for stray and abandoned animals.

Remember, the VRHS is a non-profit organization under section 501(C) (3) so that your DONATIONS can be tax-deductible.

Wylie (FKA Smiley) was one of our first dogs transported with Shelter Dog Transport Alliance to our great rescue partner Paws Crossed in 2020. It's so amazing to see how far he has come, from our shy, undersocialized boy who had never lived in a home.
