Who We Are
The Humane Society is pleased to have partnered with the County to re-open a much needed animal shelter. We have made a $50,000 annual commitment as our portion of a financial obligation to a permanently open shelter.
This financial contribution, combined with the enormous time and effort pledged by our volunteers and HSPC board members, helps to support not a pound, but a humane shelter that provides a safe environment and veterinary care for the homeless cats and dogs in Putnam County.
This animal shelter is more than just a holding pen; it’s a temporary home, with the goal of finding permanent homes for all adoptable cats and dogs.
We are a private, not for profit 501(c)3 organization, and all donations made to the Humane Society of Putnam County stay inside Putnam County. HSPC does not send money to the Humane Society of the United States, and the board members and store volunteers are not paid for their time and efforts.
Our goal is to place all adoptable animals into permanent homes. We are an advocate for the humane care and treatment of animals and are mindful of the safety of Putnam County’s livestock, roads and its people. We will always follow best practices of similar no-kill shelters, with the exceptions requiring humane euthanization in cases of extreme injury, disease or aggression.
The board members of HSPC and the animal care and control officers of Putnam County are advised by an eleven member advisory board that includes one member from each: Greencastle, Cloverdale, Bainbridge, Roachdale, Fillmore, and Russellville; one member of the Sheriff’s department, one from Heritage Lake, one from HSPC and two at large members appointed by the Putnam County Commissioner’s office.
SPAY AND NEUTER ASSISTANCE
The Humane Society of Putnam County announced the launch of a new no-cost spay/neuter assistance program to Putnam County residents and their pets in June of 2015.
This new program provides a free spay/neuter, paid in full by the HSPC, to Putnam County residents looking to fix their pets, and help keep the animal population under control in the county.
This free voucher can be redeemed at SPOT Clinic in Cloverdale and will cover the full cost of a cat or dog spay/neuter for up to two pets per household per year. Pet owners should plan to provide proof of rabies vaccination upon arrival, but for animals not currently vaccinated for rabies, the voucher will also cover the cost of bringing the animal up-to-date on their rabies vaccine, if assistance is needed.
Spay/Neuter vouchers can be picked up at Rescued Treasures (1021 Indianapolis Rd.) on Fridays and Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Thanks to the support of groups like the 100 Women Who Care, local donations and fundraisers, and the participants of the HSPC 5K, as well as the support of SPOT clinic, the Humane Society is able to provide this assistance without barriers on program applicants.
Please direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or (765)653-7174. Leave a message if nobody answers, and we will return your call as soon as possible.
The HSPC provides low cost microchipping services for Putnam County residents. The outpatient procedure costs $10 per pet at the low cost microchipping clinics offered by the HSPC. Be sure to contact Rescued Treasures or check our Facebook page to learn more about these clinic.
Microchipping is a popular technology used to identify unclaimed pets. The microchip, a tiny “pet ID” transponder the size of a grain of rice, is injected beneath the surface of the animal’s skin. When scanned by a microchip scanner, the chip emits a low radio frequency, transmitting the animal’s ID code to identify the owner’s contact information.
Implanting a microchip is a simple procedure that does not require anesthesia. To learn more about microchipping, please visit the Humane Society of the United States website here.
