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 Ladybug. She was taken in as a stray on 3/18/21 & we immediately placed her in foster care where she delivered 4 kittens 11 days later. A shelter is no place for a momma to have her kittens or care for them. As soon as they're weaned, they'll return to CCHS to be altered & vaccinated before becoming available for adoption.

Sadly, kitten & puppy season never end & CCHS is always in need of 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.


​​During 2020, CCHS took in more than 400 dogs, 15 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 JETSKI our 4th heart worm positive dog of 2021. 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!
