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.

Now in Progress


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.

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.
