The Humane Society for Hamilton County (HSHC) is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. It is not a United Way Agency, and is not affiliated with any other animal welfare group in the United States. The HSHC also serves as the animal control facility for Hamilton County, and, as such, receives partial funding from Hamilton County. The majority of the HSHC budget is funded by private donors.
The HSHC will not euthanize animals for space and time, and will treat sick and injured animals if there’s an outlook for recovery and a high quality of life. Many animals are hit-by-car injured, heartworm-positive, malnourished, or otherwise wounded and/or sick. The HSHC will provide most of these animals with life-saving treatments, surgeries and medications as their best chance for a second chance and until they are re-homed.
