In October of 1955, five DeLand residents banded together to do something about the stray animal situation. There was no Animal Control officer at that time. On June 5, 1956, the State of Florida issued to the DeLand Humane Society a charter as a not-for-profit corporation. The purpose was the protection of all animals. On September 26, 1958, ground was broken for the shelter. Together with Mrs. Sweetser, Sally Morrow turned the first shovel of dirt. The dedication and formal opening of the new building took place on Sunday, December 14, 1958. During the first year of operation, 990 animals were handled. In 1970, the DeLand Humane Society changed its name to West Volusia Humane Society. That name more clearly depicted its area of service. On August 5, 1970 the name change was officially recognized by the State of Florida.
