From our start in 1982 the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter Co., Inc. has been a force for good in our county. Since we transitioned from a foster-based organization to sheltering our animals on site as of September of 2012, the volume of our work has increased significantly with rescuing animals, providing aid to qualifying Sumter County pet owners through free programs such as our Kibbles Pet Food Pantry and our Big Fix Spay/Neuter voucher program and matching our rescued animals with good “forever homes.” In the calendar year 2017 we were able to save over 1800 animals, mostly dogs and cats but also domestic rabbits, pigs, and various birds through direct adoptions and transfers to other no-kill organizations. Our non-profit organization has always consisted of the most dedicated people, both staff and volunteers. Our Society’s mission:
With the explosive growth Sumter County is experiencing, pressing daily activities must, naturally, come first. However, in the coming months, important projects like major fundraising, planning our future and developing a capital campaign to build a new shelter on the five acres we own must be undertaken in order for us to continue to meet the growth in Sumter County and to best serve its animals and residents. In order to do this we will be adding more qualified team members.
The Executive Director is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the animal shelter in accordance with all Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. policies and any applicable State and Federal requirements. The Executive Director also works closely with the Board of Directors developing a business plan designed to support the HS/SPCA Mission and programs. The Executive Director will report monthly at the Board of Directors meeting on all animal shelter operations including community outreach and educational activities. The Executive Director will also advise the Board of staff issues related to shelter personnel. The Executive Director will be responsible for the hiring, training, supervision and scheduling of all staff and volunteers of the animal shelter. The Executive Director should also be familiar with grant writing procedures for Non-Profit organizations.
