About Us

Our Mission - The Humane Society of Allen County (HSOAC) is dedicated to the elimination of cruelty, abuse, neglect and abandonment of animals. The Society will shelter animals in times of need, locate lifelong homes and promote responsible pet ownership through education, legislation and sterilization.

Who We Are - HSOAC is a 501(c)3 non-profit,  animal welfare organization that receives no federal, state, county or city tax dollars to support us. This means that we have no additional help outside of donations and contributions made by people who believe in what we do, people like you.

A No-Suffering Shelter - As a no suffering shelter we will only put down animals with severe medical issues, severe temperament problems, and those with a poor quality of life.  We will look at the animals mobility, appetite/eating ability, breathing, discomfort, incontinence, mental capacity, happiness and response to treatment.

Statement on Euthanasia - The HSOAC does not support euthanasia as the predominant means of managing the pet overpopulation problem.  Every effort should be made to place appropriate animals in safe, responsible homes.  Euthanasia should be resorted to only when necessary to spare animals further hardship and suffering. 

Our Adoption Process - Pre-adoption questionnaires are completed and an adoption counselor will review the application with the potential adopter. Consultation is designed to help us determine if the animal is compatible with your lifestyle. The adoption process may take 24-48 hours to complete. In order to adopt, you must be 18 years old, have everyone’s consent in the household and be willing and able to invest time and money in your new companion.
