About the Camp Barefoot 6 2012 Non-profit partner (2013 Non-profit partner is under negotiation and will be released soon.)

Humane Society of Pocahontas County Quick Reference Data Since its founding in 1998, the Humane Society of Pocahontas County has been instrumental in spaying and neutering hundreds of pets and strays and arranging adoptions of many homeless animals. The all volunteer group works hard to assist with the adoption of homeless pets, provide low-cost spay/neuter and rabies clinics, and execute community education programs. In June 2008, the HSPC moved to its current location on Second Avenue in Marlinton, WV. This facility provides a base for operations and allows the HSPC to shelter a limited number of cats. Information about adoptable animals is available on at The HSPC is a private, non-profit organization which receives funding from donations, fund-raising, and small grants. With the resignation of the county’s Humane Officer who operated a private animal shelter after many years of dedicated service, the HSPC has stepped up to assist the county in operating a temporary animal shelter in Marlinton, WV. During the months to come the HSPC will assist in the management of the shelter with a focus on establishing an effective adoption program. The HSPC will also continue their current spay/ neuter programs, and planning and fund-raising for a permanent county facility that could adequately handle the area’s animal control situation. For more information about adoptable animals, making donations, or general questions please call (304)799-6767.
