Thank you for your interest in the 

Hancock County Humane Society!

We are a no-kill, non-profit animal shelter staffed entirely by volunteers and funded
entirely on donations from the local community. It is our goal to find permanent safe
and loving homes for the pets in our care.

PLEASE CLICK HERE for full details before requesting an appointment.

We ask general visitors to please postpone their visit to another time,
but our pet food pantry remains open.

We appreciate your understanding.

Hi! I'm Giselle. I am a black female cat. I am a bit shy, but  I like attention on my terms, and love to have my head rubbed. I am short and chunky. I recently had most of my teeth removed due to decay and am more about Giselle
