Love & Let Live
Every animal deserves a second chance at love — and life. We invite you to be part of the solution and give back to the animals who give us so much.
HOT OFF THE PRESS: Our New Facility is Coming Soon!
June 5, 2020
The Humane Society for Hamilton County launched its Building a Brighter Future for Hamilton County & Hoosier Animals Capital Campaign in November 2018. That brighter future includes a state-of-the-art, 40,0000 square foot facility located in Fishers that will allow us to save more lives, expand our community outreach programs, and provide a happier and healthier life for the animals.
The $14M campaign ($12M for construction, $2M for an operating endowment), reached $11.7M in October 2019 as we went into the “public phase” of the campaign. With $12.5M raised to date, we still have $1.5M to go…and we’ll be sharing some exciting information next week on how we hope all of you can help us get there.
We are on track to move into this remarkable facility located at the corner of Hague Road and 106th Street in the Spring of 2021. The dream we’ve had for so many years is coming true before our eyes. So we hope you enjoy this first glimpse of our journey thanks to Tom Wood Group, Meyer Najem, and Curran Architecture.
Stay tuned for our Tom Wood Group Weekly Updates…and check out www.HSHCBrighterFuture.com for more information, naming opportunities, and continued updates.

The Rockin’ 11th Annual Woofstock Survivor 5K | Dog Walk | Concert Set to Raise Thousands for Animals in Need
NOBLESVILLE, Ind. – The 11th Annual Woofstock Survivor 5K, Dog Walk, and Concert are less than two weeks away! Join the Humane Society for Hamilton County Saturday, October 5, 2019 for both events.
|Hit by a car and left with a broken femur, spinal cord injury, and the inability to walk, most may have thought that there was no hope for Gracie. She was left for a month without medical care, covered in urine burns, and paralyzed from the waist down. Without the Survivor Program, Gracie wouldn’t have had her second chance – the Survivor Program gave Gracie love and hope.|
This program is fully funded through donations from our generous donors and community. Without your support, we would be unable to provide the life-saving care we do. It is critical for the community and public to support this program and participate in the Survivor Walk.
Leading up to the event, individuals, groups, and organizations create teams at www.WoofstockRocks.com to organize fundraising efforts and to register for the race. The fundraising link can easily be shared through email or social media to receive donations and support your fundraising team.

The Game of Bones Comes to Hamilton County

As the only open admission, truly no-kill animal shelter in Indiana, we do things a little differently. A lot, actually. Learn about our mission, how we further it, and what you can do to help.
We’ve been out of space in our current facility for nearly a decade operating with significant spacial and operational challenges such as no intake/arrival area designed for cats, a quarantine area, a recovery area for the injured, a surgical suite, or outside space for the dogs to exercise to name a few. The fact we’ve evolved into one of the country’s few open-admission, truly No-Kill shelters is absolutely remarkable and a testament to our staff, board, and volunteers’ relentless support of our mission. It’s a testament to you.
Words alone cannot do justice to the sense of urgency we have in building a better future.
(The good news is, we’re on our way. See update HERE.)
Grab a box of Kleenex and settle in for the best HSHC rescue stories of 2019. This video compilation showcases our favorite memories, big saves, and touching adoptions of the year and was originally aired at Tinsel & Tails 2019.

The breed may have a bad rap, but we’re working to change the reputation of Pit Bull Terriers (and mixes) one dog at a time. Working with us are the many dedicated owners and fosters (we call them Pit Bull Angels) who love and advocate for the bully breeds.
See what real owners of pit bulls have to say about why they love the breed — and why you should consider adding one of these big-grinning, big-hearted pooches to your family.
There aren’t always win-win solutions to problems, but Pets Healing Vets is certainly one of them. This innovative program pairs veterans with TBI and/or PTSD with rescue dogs who are specially suited to comfort them and help them reintegrate into civilian life. Learn more about Pets Healing Vets.
They were bouncing off the walls. They guarded food and toys. They had unreal ball drive. They were labeled “unadoptable.”
But, at HSHC, we saw potential where no one else did. See the amazing stories of how these dogs are now serving and protecting innocent lives around the world!
