About Starke County Humane Society
About Our Shelter...
The Starke County Humane Society is a very small, privately funded, non-profit 501(C)(3) organization that depends on the generous donations of animal lovers to continue operating. We do not receive any county funding. We strive to *Provide assistance, shelter, and humane care for all lost, abused, neglected or unwanted animals *Reunite lost pets with their families *Place homeless animals with responsible guardians through various adoption programs *Foster the humane treatment of all animals with education concerning population control, animal abuse, and ownership responsibilities *Promote SPAY/NEUTER as the BEST way to reduce the population of unwanted pets. Our hope is that one day SOON all people will realize that ALL of their PETS MUST BE SPAYED or NEUTERED, so that there will be enough loving, responsible guardians for every healthy, nonaggressive animal. This will eliminate euthanasia as a form of population control.

Our Adoption Process...
Please, DO NOT DELAY, CALL IMMEDIATELY to let our shelter know who you are interested in meeting or adopting. (Leave a message, if nobody answers, please. BETTER STILL CALL BACK.) Due to lack of staff, email is not checked each day. All animals adopted from the Starke County Humane Society Animal Shelter are required to be Spayed or Neutered within the time frame specified in the adoption contract. (Usually, within 30 days of adoption date) A contract stating the basics of what is required of a responsible pet guardian must be signed. A drivers license is required for identification purposes. Animals are taken home on the day of adoption. Basic fees are $40 for cats, $ 50.00 for kittens, and $ 75.00 for dogs and puppies. These fees include a booster shot, worming, and a $30 spay/neuter certificate if pet is not already altered. Canine adopters will receive a Training DVD, and feline adopers will receive a "Your Adopted Cat" DVD. Heartworm tests are usually given to adult dogs and result in an additional $15 charge. Rabies shots, other shots, or tests are sometimes available at an added cost. (Ask shelter staff about availability of canine/feline shots/tests and costs.)
