Humane Society of Sumner County

The Humane Society of Sumner County (HSSC) is a small, private, non-profit (501c3) service organization that promotes the humane treatment of abandoned, lost, and displaced animals. HSSC provides temporary shelter, necessary medical attention & mandatory vaccinations, and sterilization to our incoming animals. Our adoption staff joins loving, qualified, and responsible people with these animals and works diligently to re-unite incoming lost animals with their guardians. HSSC encourages the public to help control the over-pet population through spay and neuter awareness. HSSC has diligently served this community since 1974 and is solely supported by donations.

Meet Gemma

Gemma is a very high energy young dog. She loves toys and people, once she gets to know you. Gemma is a fighter and beat parvo along with her sister. She is in need of a very active adopter because she is super hyper. We do know Gemma did not do well with her past adopter's dog when it came to food. She needs to be the only dog.
