The Humane Society for Hamilton County (HSHC) is a not-for-profit 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. It is not a United Way Agency and is not affiliated with any other animal welfare group in the United States. The HSHC also serves as the animal control facility for Hamilton County and receives partial funding from Hamilton County. The majority of the HSHC budget, however, is funded by private donors.
The HSHC will not euthanize animals because of time or space constraints and will treat sick and injured animals if there’s a positive outlook for both recovery and a high quality of life. Many animals are hit-by-car injured, heartworm-positive, malnourished, or otherwise wounded and/or sick. The HSHC provides these animals with life-saving treatments, surgeries, and medications.
We believe every animal deserves a second chance at love and life — no matter what it takes.
