The Humane Society is joining with the high school building trades classes to construct a new shelter. The facility will include space for more animals,
spay/neuter surgery, pet adoption interaction, pet care education programs and other state-of-the art shelter features.
You can participate in this building campaign by buying a brick to honor or memorialize a pet, friend or family member. Bricks can be purchased in three price ranges.Hi! My name is Aiden and I have recently celebrated my one year old birthday. Please...I would like a warm bed while I am waiting for my forever home. The floor here at the shelter is hard and a Kuranda bed would enable me to have a nice comfortable, elevated bed to lie on when I sleep.. Some of my friends already have beds donated, but I don't have one yet. walk paver - $50
inside the wall tile - $80
inside marble/gold letters - $500
*Your purchase includes a replica certificate for framing.*
Please help support the Bartholomew County Humane Society.
Remember a loved pet; honor a life or deed of compassion.
Call 372-6063 for more information or come out to the shelter to pick up an order form.
Your support is greatly appreciated!

Why Spay/ Neuter?
Of course, we all know that this surgery is the solution to pet overpopulation. But it can also keep our pets healthier and better behaved.
For more facts from the ASPCA, click here.
Our shelter works with a low-cost spay/neuter clinic monthly. Please call the BCHS at 812-372-6063 for pricing and details.
