Perry County Humane Society is a no-kill organization, a 501(c)(3) whose mission is to rescue and care for abandoned and abused dogs and cats. While we have no shelter facility, we always have at least 25 of our dogs housed at Southeastern Correctional Institution where inmate handlers train and care for the dogs until they are adopted. Please call 740-653-4324, extension 2757, to schedule an appointment to see the dogs.

The dogs can be seen at Southeastern Correctional Institution in Lancaster, preferrably on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please call for an appointment: 740-653-4324, extension 2757.
