Who We Are

Hancock County Humane Society was founded in 1976 to promote animal welfare. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and well being of all animals in need. The society strives to prevent cruelty to animals and to reduce pet overpopulation by:

* Educating the public regarding humane treatment of animals
* Promoting responsible pet ownership
* Encouraging the spaying and neutering of companion animals

We are a volunteer supported, nonprofit, charitable organization supported entirely by donations. We receive no government funds. We rely solely on your donations and on our volunteers who donate their time and energy.

The philosophy of the Hancock County Humane Society is to promote the health and well being of the pet and animal population through a humane and effective spay/neuter program in order to end the senseless killing of unwanted animals.??We envision a society in which euthanizing healthy animals is unacceptable.

We believe that animals have feelings and deserve respect. Any animal that we rescue is treated in this manner with a determination and willingness from us to make sure they have a healthy and happy life in a loving home.

Adopting a Friend

Hancock County Humane Society operates no shelter facility. Healthy, adoptable animals that come into our care stay in foster homes until a suitable permanent home can be found. HCHS charges $50 for cat adoptions and $65 for dog adoptions. For those animals that have not been altered, we also provide vouchers for low-cost spay/neuter.
