EVENTS & SPECIALS
Effective 5/25/20, in accordance with Indiana Governor Holcomb's roadmap to reopening, we're returning to conducting walk throughs, however, adopters with pre-approved applications and appointments will be given priority. When the quarantine went into effect on 3/24/20, we began accepting online applications and scheduling appointments. We will continue to encourage ALL adopters to complete the online 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, then click the link provided to complete an adoption form). To prevent the spread of Covid-19, we require you to wear a mask when in our facility. Thank you for our consideration.

HSUS & Michelson Found Animals Microchip grant We're thankful to be 1 of 10 Indiana organizations to have been selected to receive 500 microchips thanks to a generous donation from Michelson Found Animals. Thanks to our grant writer, Barb Lucas, and the Humane Society of the United States, its partners and Michelson Found Animals for making this possible.
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. To complete a foster application, please click on the Foster Tab.

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!
