Welcome to the Humane Society of St. Joseph County Indiana's page! Incorporated in 1886, we are one of Indiana's oldest service organizations and still the area’s largest animal care facility. Servicing the greater St. Joseph County region and multiple municipalities, the HSSJC sees over 3,000 animals each year. Providing a vast array of community services and educational programs the Humane Society of St. Joseph County truly looks to embody its motto of "WE CARE" on many levels.

Operating the Department of Animal Welfare, the Humane Society of St. Joseph County's Humane Officers respond to over 3,000 cruelty, neglect, and abuse calls each year. Comprising a team of highly trained officers with specialized study in everything from equine science to criminal justice, the Department of Animal Welfare is dedicated to ensuring the humane treatment of all animals within our community.

Our compassionate staff care for 500+ animals each day. Many of these animals are in need of special medial care including antibiotics, heartworm disease treatment, lyme disease treatment, amputations and specialized life-saving surgeries. We rely on the kindness of the community to help fund our medical costs. Please consider making a life-saving monetary donation to help keep our community's pets happy and healthy!
