Effective 3/24/20 until at least 5/25/20 due to Indiana Governor Holcomb's directive to help minimize the spread of COVID-19, we're making some changes to our normal routine. These changes include the following:

 * Please, no volunteers at this time

 * Community service hours will be suspended at this time

 * Adoptions will be conducted by appointment ONLY. We will not be conducting walk throughs. We request you fill out an adoption application for the specific dog or cat you'd like to meet. Once the application has been reviewed, a staff member will contact you. (CLICK on the ADOPTABLE PETS tab, in the first paragraph, click the link provided to complete an adoption form).

 * We will be accepting emergency calls through dispatch ONLY. That number is 812-446-2535 ext. 5.

 *If there are any important issues, such as welfare checks, please leave us a message and we'll try our best 812-446-5126. 

Every one stay home and stay safe. Please keep your animals contained and safe as well! Thank you for supporting CCHS!

The Clay County Humane Society has proudly served the Clay County, Indiana community since 1957. Our mission is to: prevent cruelty to animals; to induce others by education and suggestion to treat animals in a kind and humane manner; to aid in the prosecution of those who violate the laws of the state and to operate and maintain an animal shelter in accordance with the foregoing purposes.

CCHS provides shelter for homeless and unwanted cats and dogs in Clay County. All animals taken into our facility are cared for until they are adopted. We do not euthanize for space. To alleveiate the number of homeless and unwanted pets, all cats and dogs are spayed or neutered before leaving the shelter.


CCHS is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization.


This is Sparrow. She came in with 7 kittens, one passed at a day old, another at 2 days old. She & her remaining 5 kittens were recently placed in foster care until her babies are weaned. With kitten and puppy season in full swing, CCHS may need more fosters to care for new or expectant mommas from delivery until the babies are weaned. If you'd be interested in fostering momma cats, dogs or residents in need of medical TLC or some time off from the shelter, please call 812-446-5126 for more info. CCHS will provide food and any support you may need.


​​During 2019, CCHS took in more than 400 dogs, 44 were heart worm positive. Fortunately, ALL of those dogs received treatment while in our care through funds generously donated by individuals like you. Pictured is Baxter, one of our current heart worm positive dogs. If you'd like to contribute to our heart worm treatment fund, please click on our donate button at the bottom of the page and make a note that it's for the Heartworm Treatment Fund. Thank you!
