One At A Time

Each day an old man walked along the beach, picking up starfish, that had been washed up on the shore by the tide, and threw them back into the sea..

One day a young boy stopped the old man and asked Why do you throw the Starfish back into the sea? It dosent matter. They will only wash up on the shore tomorrow. The Old Man bent over, picked up another and threw it as far as he could into the sea, and replied... it made a difference to that one.

Donations Needed

   The Humane Society is not funded by any governmental agency and we have no paid employees. We are an all volunteer organization, funded by grants and individuals such as your-self.

   All cash,check and pay pal donations are used to offset the cost of spay/neuter surgeries, vaccine immunizations, rabies vaccinations, medical supplies, health tests, emergency treatment, veterinary bills, and many other operational costs benefiting the animals.



   In 2011 we were able to purchase a used 2004 passenger van with 30,000 miles, that had been stolen off of a dealers lot,and recovered with the seats missing and some minor damage. Why a Van of this type? It has rear Air-Conditioning and Heat and can be used in the heat of the summer and cold of winter.


   Over the past five years, we have driven over a 125 thousand miles on the Van, transporting over 4,500 homeless animals from through out Southern Indiana to rescue groups where they have been adopted out to forever homes. This van in addition to medical expense plays important part of our program.

We need your help!

   We have been blessed to have the Humane Society transport van for about 5yrs. and it has served us well by transporting as many as 40 dogs & cats at a time on trips that go north toward Chicago, into Wisconsin and east toward the Cincinnati area. Last year alone, 1244 dogs and cats from our Southern Indiana Saveapet shelters were transported to No Kill rescues that opened their hearts and found these animals forever homes.

   We have nearly 150,000 miles on the van and little things are starting to require service. There is a fear of transport problems on the highway while we are trying to get the animals to safe haven & new lives.

   A newer, healthier van is going to be necessary for us to continue our work and may cost between $20,000 - $25,000. This seems an impossible feat and only with the help of pet lovers will we be able to raise these funds and continue to save lives by transport. If you are able to help in any way, the animals of Southern Indiana would be grateful.
