    Love & Let Live

    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.

    Our Video Case Statement

    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.

    Please watch and see for yourself.

    (The good news is, we’re on our way.  See update HERE.)

    Bad to the Bone

    They were bouncing off the walls. They guarded food and toys. They had unreal ball drive. They were labeled “unadoptable.”

2018 Woofstock and Survivor Charity Walk

Hundreds Gather at Woofstock Survivor Charity Walk to Save Thousands of Animal Lives

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. – The 10th Annual Woofstock Charity Walk will kick off the Woofstock Festival on Saturday, October 6th, 2018 at 11:30 a.m.(Registration Begins at 10:30 am)  at the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater.
This year, our need for support is greater than ever. The number of animals needing our help is steadily increasing due to the amount of seniors surrendered, neglect, and major injury cases we have seen. Tuesday, local animal control officers brought 19 animals from a hoarding/neglect case to our shelter. These dogs and cats required extensive care … care only available thanks to the Survivor Program.
The Survivor Program provides life-saving and emergency care to thousands of animals each year. This program is fully funded through donations from our generous donors and community. Without their support, we would be unable to provide much of 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 https://woofstocksurvivorwalk.greatfeats.com to organize fundraising efforts. The fundraising link can easily be shared through email or social media to receive donations and support your fundraising team.
Top youth, individual, corporate, and team fundraisers will be awarded different prizes ranging from Three Dog Bakery gift cards to spa packages and a Jump ‘n’ Play party for the top youth fundraiser.
There are two options for those interested in participating: fundraisers can walk and fundraise, or not walk and still fundraise! The walk begins at 11:30 a.m. and is dog and family friendly!

2018 Nina Mason Pulliam Grant

Humane Society for Hamilton County Receives $25,000 Grant for Saving Marion County Animals At-Risk for Euthanasia

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. – The Humane Society for Hamilton County (HSHC) has been awarded a $25,000 grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust for their efforts in saving animals from Marion County who are the hardest-to-save and place.
The grant will be used to fund the life-saving care for animals transferred to the Humane Society for Hamilton County from Indianapolis Animal Care Services, as well as animals accepted directly from Marion County residents–the majority of which are in need of medical care for life threatening injuries and illnesses resulting from abuse, neglect, being hit by a car or simply senior animals in need of special care.
“The Humane Society for Hamilton County already funds 100% of all medical care for Hamilton County’s animals, so the more than 200 we save each year from Marion County and other Indiana shelters is an additional financial burden we have committed to in order to give seniors, abuse victims, and the ones less likely to be rescued by other organizations the second chance they deserve,” said Rebecca Stevens, the HSHC’s President and CEO.  “We rely on donations to our Survivor Program to fund these efforts,” she added. “We’re honored to receive this generous gift from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust. It will allow us to continue our work and focus on saving the most at-risk animals in Marion County.”
The Humane Society for Hamilton County is hosting their largest fundraiser of the year to support the Survivor Program on Saturday, October 6th–the 10th Annual Woofstock Survivor Charity Walk. To learn more about the walk and how you can support HSHC’s Survivor Program, go to: https://woofstocksurvivorwalk.greatfeats.com.

Humane Society for Hamilton County Brand Identity and Website Get a “Muzzle-Lift” Thanks to Pass It Forward

Noblesville, Ind., June 6, 2016

The Humane Society for Hamilton County (HSHC) is very excited to announce the launch of the rebranding of their entire logo suite including a new corporate logo and tag line.  Their branding still falls within the red, white and blue palette but with a cleaner, more updated look.

“We enlisted the expertise of Creative Quarterback to help us update our logos and website so we could share our unique programs and life-saving philosophy through a more streamlined and cohesive branding strategy,” said Rebecca Stevens, Executive Director of the Humane Society.  “We have evolved so much over the last decade serving our community as not only one of the few open-admission, truly no-kill shelters in the country, but also one that offers unique programs like Pets Healing Vets.  We have added many events to our annual docket as well, each with a logo—so it was time to tie everything together with a more easily identified, singular color palette and theme.

The shelter’s new tagline,  “Love & Let Live,” speaks to HSHC’s no-kill philosophy of giving every adoptable animal who is savable, treatable or rehabilitatable a second chance at love and life.

“Marketing can make a big difference. That’s why companies invest so much time and money on branding, websites, and other marketing efforts,” says marketing agency Creative Quarterback’s Founder Nicole Ross. “Unfortunately, nonprofits rarely have that option. There are too many other demands for their dollars. As a result, a nonprofit’s public image and online presence often fail to reflect the professionalism and innovation of the organization itself.”

So Ross started a program called Pass It Forward to help non-profits overcome these obstacles. “When we started Pass It Forward, I wanted HSHC to be our first nonprofit partner organization–not only to help prove this creative giving model could work–but because I adopted one of my greatest loves from their facility in 2012, a senior Beagle named Penny.”

Ross and HSHC worked together to raise $16,105 utilized to fund the work of 11 freelancers who redesigned the shelter’s website, logo suite and marketing collateral, developed a new corporate video, and prepared all new templates for the shelter’s e-communication strategy and proposals. Creative Quarterback donated over $26,000 in services in addition to the funds raised to complete these projects.

“We look forward to building on this experience and finding more ways to Pass It Forward to other animal welfare organizations in the future,” said Ross.  “I’m blown away by the creativity, efficiency and generosity of the Creative Quarterback team,” said Stevens.  “Their creative vision, will no doubt, help us achieve ours.”
