HANCOCK COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY INCORPORATED

Kindness to Animals, Inevitably Leads to Kindness to People

Greenfield, IN   |  hancockcountyhumanesociety.org

Mission

The Hancock County Humane Society is a no-kill, non-profit animal shelter. The shelter has always been staffed entirely by volunteers and funded entirely on donations from the local community. We strive to find permanent safe and loving adoptive homes for the pets in our care. We also work to provide our community with resources for necessary animal care services so more residents can keep their pets and avoid surrendering them to a shelter.

Care For and Adoption of Homeless Cats and Kittens

Our shelter cares for homeless cats and kittens, and works to adopt them to loving permanent homes. In recent years approximately 150 cats and kittens per year have been adopted, almost 200 in 2018. Priority is given to county residents who need to rehome pets, but adoptions are done throughout Indiana and even nearby states. Approximately half the pets are pulled from other local facilities who may be forced to euthanize animals due to space or illness issues. The recent addition of a medical suite in our building allows our volunteers to work with local veterinarians to care for and return more sick or injured animals to adoptable health.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Our shelter provides dog and cat food free of charge to county residents who indicate a need for help with the costs of feeding their pets. This helps people avoid surrendering their animals to shelters. Each year we give out over 6,000 pounds of pet food to over 250 families.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Several times a year, our shelter sponsors low-cost vaccination clinics for dogs and cats, with vaccines administered by local veterinarians. In 2017, our clinics helped local pet owners get affordable vaccinations for 258 dogs and 49 cats, for a total of 307 pets.
