Mission Statement

The Humane Society of Elkhart County is dedicated to promoting respect and responsibility to all animals and to the prevention of suffering and neglect through education, public service and adoption.

Description

In the late 1930’s, there was a growing concern regarding the fate of unwanted and stranded animals. In 1939 a small band of interested individuals began to formally take on these unfortunate creatures. Their efforts lead to the formation of the Humane Society of Elkhart County which operates an animal shelter and serves as animal control for Elkhart County.

The Humane Society of Elkhart County is a private 501c3 Not-For-Profit organization and relies on community donations to help support its mission. HSEC is not a governmental agency. However, it is contracted by the county and some cities in Elkhart County to provide animal control services to support stray, abandoned and owner released animals in Elkhart County.

The Humane Society serves a community of over 200,000 people working in Elkhart County. It is estimated that over 60% of Elkhart County owns a pet. The Humane Society seeks to educate regarding proper animal care and various animal welfare issues.
