Glynda's Heart 

Glynda’s HEART (Help Each Animal Receive Treatment) was established to honor Glynda Valentine, a long time volunteer and supporter of Watauga Humane Society, as well as a life long proponent of animal welfare. Created by her friends, HEART continues to honor Glynda’s passion for animal care, ensuring that Watauga Humane Society can be a place of refuge for hurt, abandoned and abused animals. Donations to HEART help fund general medical and preventative care for WHS animals, including immunizations and medications. Glynda wanted every animal to have the opportunity for a long and healthy life, and HEART continues let her spirit live on through the animals.

FLY Fund          

FLY (Forever Loving You) Fund was established to support emergency vet services to Watauga Humane Society dogs in need. It’s foundation is based on forever friendships, support, and caring for animals, as well as each other. By coming together, these funds have helped save the lives of several dogs in need of critical surgery and extensive vet treatment. FLY Fund gives WHS dogs a second chance to find caring and loving homes once rehabilitated. The first donation towards FLY Fund was in loving memory of a longtime companion named Muzzy - which makes her the first to receive her Angel Wings. We encourage donations to FLY Fund to be in memory of friends or animals that have since left us, helping them receive their Angel Wings too.

Doogie's HOPE                

Doogie’s HOPE (Help Other Pets Eat) supports the purchasing of food for Watauga Humane Society animals, as well as for our community’s Pet Food Pantry. HOPE was established by Ronny and Patsy Turner in honor of their beloved dog, Doogie. By helping feed animals in need, Doogie’s memory can continue to live on and encourage others to support our vision of “no pet left unfed”.


Mychal's Fund  

Mychal's Fund was established to pay for medical treatment for abused and neglected animals. Mychal was a cat who had been set on fire by his owner. Through loving donations and much medical care he went on to be adopted into a loving home that he is STILL thriving in today. This fund is to help other animals like Mychal!
