Mission Statement

The Humane Society of Sandusky County is a non-profit organization that receives no local government funding. All of our monies are derived from local contributions and fund raising. We can do only so much without your assistance-that's why we need your help!

Our mission statement is to "educate our community that animal abuse is wrong and that to not spay or neuter is to cause the destruction of beautiful, healthy animals."

Without sufficient contributions and funding our shelter cannot exist-but a shelter is only a bandage to a much bigger problem, pet overpopulation. We beg you to spay/neuter your pet and think of us when it is time to replace your beloved pet.


The Humane Society of Sandusky County was established in 1883. The purpose of the Humane Society is the prevention of cruelty to animals, the relief of suffering among animals and the establishment of humane educational programs in the Sandusky County school systems and throughout the community.

Cruelty is defined in several different ways...

  1. When an animal is yarded or confined and continues without food, water, protection from the weather or proper attention for more than 15 consecutive hours, any person may remove said animal and not be liable for trespassing.
  2. Overworking, underfeeding or depriving of proper sustenance
  3. One who inflicts suffering and death on any useful beast. fowl or animal for amusement and sport within the statute which marks injuring, torturing, tormenting and needlessly killing such animals.
