Valley River Humane Society is a non-profit volunteer organization located in Western North Carolina. Their work spans from Cherokee County to Graham County. Valley River's primary goal is to reduce the number of homeless animals in their community. By promoting adoptions through their spay and neuter program, they are successful in placing adopted dogs into safe and loving homes.
We have a huge appreciation for the outdoors, but we also have a huge heart for rescue dogs and the homeless dogs of Graham County, North Carolina. In 2016 our path lead us to Robbinsville, NC, one of the rural towns located in Graham County. By chance, we connected with Graham County Animal Advocates and immediately began to help support their cause. After their disbandment in 2018, with their help, we transitioned our Giving Back campaign into Valley River Humane Society ("VRHS"). VRHS has continued the legacy which began in 2013 by Robin Mason and Alice Lumbard, who saw a need for rescuing the strays of Graham County.
