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.

young adult   


Another litter of kittens left outside the shelter when the shelter is not open.

There are wild animals - even in town - who would LOVE to find a box lunch of kittens.

Arrangements can be made if you cannot surrender a pet during regular business hours. Please call the shelter (812) 883 3673 or humane society (812) 883 4204 before just leaving your animals outside. That is illegal.

You care enough to bring your pets to the shelter but if something gets to them before the shelter staff or the shelter staff doesn't see them right away, it may not be a good outcome.

These three friendly, healthy kittens were left by the back door of the shelter Friday but not in an obvious place. An observant shelter worker spotted them Friday morning but they could have been there for hours.

This pretty girl came to the shelter with her kittens. The kittens are old enough to wean so mommy is looking forward to a home where she will be loved. She will be spayed when adopted so no more babies for her.
