About Our Shelter:

Plainfield Area Humane Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has been uniting pets and people since 1933. Our mission is to find a loving home for every homeless pet. Our vision is that all pets have a permanent home to live their lives in comfort. Our values are to value the life of every animal entrusted to our care. We value our employees, who give so much in caring for abandoned animals. We value our volunteers and supporters, who generously contribute their time and resources to our mission. We value our role in the community, eliciting change in the way animals are perceived and treated. Our methods are to perform animal control services to keep homeless pets off the streets. We use mandatory spay/neuter to reduce pet overpopulation. We microchip every adoptee so that they may find their way home if lost.We promote responsible pet ownership through community outreach and education.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
