Our Featured Pet...

Jed aka Buddy, is our featured pet. Buddy, as his volunteer likes to call him, is a terrier mix who was brought to the shelter at 6 weeks with his brother and 2 sisters. Unfortunately Buddy and his sister Jewel are still here at the shelter a year later. Buddy is now full grown making him a medium size dog. He is short-haired, mostly black with some white on his chest. Buddy is a good boy. He has learned to walk on a leash, is learning to be patient, and basic commands. He is a happy-go-lucky boy who doesn't let things get to him. He is tolerant of other dogs even when they aren't very nice to him. He likes to run and be walked. Last week he left the shelter for the first time in his life to go to a fundraiser, Photos with Santa. He was a little scared at first but warmed up quickly. He allowed strangers to walk him and didn't mind walking through the crowds of people outside waiting for the parade. Even the loud noises didn't bother him. Buddy is a sweetheart and he is so ready to have a life outside of the cement kennel he's lived in so far. Please come in and meet this wonderful guy and give him a place in your home and your heart.


We are having great economic hardships in our area. Our county has the 2nd highest unemployment rate in Ohio. This has greatly decreased our donations that people can give. We are so short of funds that we often wonder how we can keep going on. But, we can with your help.

Who We Are

Highland County Humane Society is a non-profit, no-kill shelter which provides a safe haven for dogs and cats while they transition from their past lives to their future, forever homes. Highland County Humane Society relies solely on donations and largely on volunteers to do vital work in the community.
