Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
PHS serves Mt Vernon, New Harmony, Poseyville and all of Posey County. We also welcome adoptions from outside of Posey County.
Posey Humane is a small shelter serving Posey County and the surrounding areas. The shelter rehomes dogs, cats and small animals. We are the only facility in Posey County that accepts cats. The shelter is also in the process of establishing a Trap, Neuter and Return program to help address the problem of feral cats. PHS is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that receives no funding from any local, state or national organizations. It is a limited access shelter. PHS does not euthanize for space. Instead, the organization feels all animals deserve a second chance at a loving forever home. Volunteers and foster care homes are always appreciated and help further our mission to save more lives. Please visit our website at www.poseyhumane.org to see how you can make a difference by donating and volunteering.

Our Adoption Process:
All adopters are asked to complete an adoption application. This application will ask for personal references and if you have previously had animals, there will be a veterinarian reference requested. If there are existing animals in the home, they must be current on any age appropriate vaccinations. Adoption fees vary according to the type of animal being adopted. Fees can be seen at our website www.poseyhumane.org. Once an application has been approved all adoption fees must be paid before the animal goes to their new home.
