Grant Awarded by Community Foundation -- Sunday June 16th, 2019

Community Foundation Grant Awarded

Grant Received from HCCF

Hancock County Humane Society is honored to announce the receipt of a grant from the Hancock County Community Foundation. The grant, in the amount of $6,902.75, will establish an Animal Health and Medical Fund. This fund will be used to pay for spay/neuter and medical expenses for pets in our community, and enable us to continue to rescue animals needing medical care that might otherwise be euthanized. Medical and spay/neuter expenses during our last fiscal year totaled $27,801, and this grant will increase the number of animals we are able to help.

Our volunteers are grateful to the Hancock County Community Foundation for its generosity, and we are excited about the opportunity to expand the services we can provide to our community!


Medical Expense Fund Drive -- Monday November 26th, 2018

Medical Expense Fund Drive:

$21,700+. That's how much money the Hancock County Humane Society has spent already this year on medical expenses for the animals in our care, as we look for their furever homes.

We'd like to help even more pets. But we need your help to do it. Our shelter is supported entirely by donations and funrdraisers. We receive no public funds or funding from the Humane Society of the United States. Local organizations, businesses, and people just like you are supplying the funds we use to return injured or sick animals to good health so they can be adopted, and their spay/neuter surgeries to prevent pet overpopulation.

Can you help us? We'd like to raise $10,000 by the end of 2018. YOU can be part of the work we're doing for homeless pets in our community. Please donate today!

Our Roof Replacement Begins! -- Sunday September 16th, 2018

Thanks to a grant from the Hancock County Community Foundation, and many donations from companies and individuals, work is beginning this week to replace our leaking roof! Due to the construction equipment, visitors and volunteers will need to park on the street instead of our parking lot during the week of September 17th. We will also be unable to accept donations of aluminum cans during this time, due to the lack of storage. These inconveniences will hopefully be done soon. Thanks for your patience, and thanks to all of you who made it possible for us to maintain a safe facility for our pets!
