Henry County Humane Society

    The Henry County Humane Society (HCHS) has made some amazing changes. With special thanks to very dedicated and compassionate individuals, the shelter has joined the No-kill Revolution! We are all working together toward a better tomorrow with the animals of today. The HCHS no longer euthanizes healthy animals for space restrictions. We also try to treat illnesses and injuries to the best of our abilities.

It is our mission to not only protect the lives of animals, but to ensure the safety of our community as well. By caring for and re-homing animals that would otherwise be forgotten and dismissed; it is our duty to provide services such as testing, spaying, neutering, and immunizations by promoting adoptions of healthy animals, and preventing the spread of animal diseases. It is also our goal to promote responsible ownership. 

We at the HCHS are dedicated to improving the welfare of companion animals through education and awareness. We are in constant need of volunteers willing to aid in the care of the animals in our care, loving individuals or families willing to extend their home by either rescue or fostering, and those willing to lend a hand for fundraising events.

Our hope for the future is that there will no longer be unwanted, unloved, or abandoned companions. We wish to find permanent, forever homes for these animals. We believe that with the involvement of our wonderful community and beyond, we will make a significant difference in the eyes of our furry friends. Together we can make that difference!

*Surrender Information*

We at the Henry County Humane Society understand that life changes & sometimes unavoidable situations occur. We also understand that seemingly unwanted or abandoned animals may be in need of a second chance, & not all people are able to house those animals in need. We at the HCHS understand that there are many animals that are in need help. When all possible solutions are exhausted, & surrender is the only remaining solution, please understand the following :
*We are a closed County Humane Society-Surrenders require ID proof of residence to surrender.
* We are a No-Kill Humane Society-we have a capacity limit for animal space & we do not euthanize for space.
*There may be a Waitlist for animals- we cannot guarantee the length of a waitlist, it can vary from a week to several months.
*Surrender fees are required for all animals surrenders- we are a nonprofit organization & receive no funding from city, state, county, or government.

Did you find a dog? The HCHS cannot accept lost/found dogs. If you have found a dog, please contact the Henry County Dog Warden at 419-748-7298. They are located at P772 St. Rt. 65, McClure, OH. Please refrain from transporting the dog to our facility.
Behavioral issues? If you are looking to surrender your animal based on behavioral problems, please reconsider! We do not have veterinarians on staff, but there are animal behavioral specialists that may be able to help.
Moving? Start early! If you are moving & you have not been able to obtain a pet friendly place to live, & surrender is the only feasible option, please contact us as far in advance as possible. If you are moving tomorrow & need a place to take your animal today, we may not have the space available, & placing your animal at top priority is not fair to those who have been waiting patiently.
~Please be courteous of out Waitlist. We are doing the very best we can to ensure that all animals have a chance at a happy & healthy life. If waiting is simply not an option there are other shelters/rescues you can try. *Note- many other shelters cannot help those out of their county. 
~Remember, the best way to prevent unwanted animals & help with the overpopulation is to spay & neuter. If every person was able to spay/neuter 1 stray cat in their lifetime, it would greatly reduce the population. Taking a found stray and/or litter of kittens "out to the country" may seem like a reasonable solution, but doing so does far more harm than good. Redistributing animals into strange locations can spread illness very rapidly, & if those animals are not spayed/neutered the situation will continue to grow.

How can one person save 100 homeless cats?

Just spay ONE!  Will you be the one to help spay one, or maybe 100, or maybe 1000?  Please contact us if you are interested. We have information on Low-Cost  Spay / Neuter program thru Humane Ohio.
