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.

Kittens are coming in almost every day. If you surrender a litter of puppies or kittens to the shelter, you can get your mommies spayed for FREE.

Giving kittens and puppies away for FREE does not help our pet over population problem. Animals adopted from the shelter are spayed or neutered.


Lots of different colors.

Kitten season has hit.

If you surrender a litter of kittens or puppies to the shelter, we will pay to get your mommy spayed.

"Leo" rott mastiff mix
1 year   Neutered Male

High energy boy.

Needs a fenced yard so he can burn off some of that energy.

Was originally left at a friend's house - supposedly for a week - after about a month his owner still had not shown up for him so he was brought to the shelter.

American Bull Terrier HEART WORM POSITIVE

His colors are very vivid.

Happy boy. Gets along great with other dogs. Loves kids. HATES CATS.

"Abby" Pit bull
2-3 years   Female

Turned in because she killed the landlord's cat.

Appears to have had several litters of puppies.

Was shy in the shelter at first but doing fine now.

Alpha female so needs to be an only dog or a home with a submissive dog. She is not aggressive but she does like to be in charge.


2-3 years   Male

Followed kayakers down Blue River.

"Baby Boy" Mastiff Mix
5 years   Neutered Male

This guy has had a rough few months. He was adopted by a couple who loved him but wasn't able to give him the medical treatment he needed.

He has had surgery for entropion eye (eye lashes turn in and continually scratched his eyes which caused them to water) and been neutered.

When he was surrendered back to the shelter he had an infected anal gland which absessed and burst (can you say stinky, stinky?).

He is on antibiotics and on the mend now. He gets along fine with other dogs and loves people.

Baby Boy weighs about 70#.

Long Hair Tiger Kitten

Grey Cat
young adult   

White and grey cat
Young Adult   

Long Hair Calico Kitten

"Reggie" Blue Heeler
2-3 years   Male

This guy will require a very special home. He has been at the shelter for months.

He will charge the gate of his kennel but once you get him out he is fine. He gets passed over for this reason.
