Featured Pet Of The Week

Looking for a gift for any occasion that will make a difference.

Please consider making a tax deductible donation to the humane society. We offer spay/neuter assistance programs for Washington County residents. The humane society also assists with medical and other needs of animals at the shelter. The animal shelter is housing the animals longer which is great but it also increases their needs while waiting for their forever homes. Your donation CAN help change lives. If you would like for us to acknowledge a gift made in someone's name, please let us know and we will be sure they receive a card letting them know of your generosity. Go to and click on the PayPal link or mail a check to Humane Society (HSWCIN), 204 Joseph Street, Salem, IN 47167. We appreciate your assistance.
