About BCHS

The Bedford County Humane Society is a non-profit animal welfare organization located in South Central Pennsylvania.


The Bedford County Humane Society is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), No-Kill shelter for all breeds of dogs and cats.

We have been open since 1989 and have rescued, rehabilitated and placed thousands of dogs and cats, to date, into their loving forever homes!


The Bedford County Humane Society rescues abused and neglected dogs and cats and rehabilitates them mentally & physically in order to place them with the best new family. We rescue 98% of our dogs and cats from both Bedford and Fulton Counties and various animal control facilities in which they are usually listed as strays, and almost always scheduled to be euthanized.


The best possible veterinary care is always given to those at the Bedford County Humane Society. We never decline treatment, whatever it may entail, if it means that the animal has a chance at a new and healthy life.

We strive to go above and beyond when caring for and socializing our animals. We understand the importance of getting to know each and every animal available for adoption in an effort to place them in the most perfect home possible. All dogs are walked daily and socialized with each other and volunteers. The cats are housed in large ‘free roam’ cat rooms so they can socialize all day with each other, staff, volunteers and potential adopters.


Like people, animals have distinct personalities that make them unique. At the Bedford County Humane Society, we are proud to say that the dogs and cats are treated like our own. We care enough to be certain they are treated with the comfort and respect that they deserve and we make every effort to ensure that they go to the right, forever, permanent, loving home.


Our Mission:
The Bedford County Humane Society is dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to all animals of all descriptions capable of suffering.
