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.

  Where are you located ?

The Humane Society does not operate from a shelter with dog runs and cat cages.

We do operate a from our NEW "Humane Society Adoption Center" located at 1176 North Gardner (Hwy31) in Scottsburg, where our cats for adoption are housed.

We support the Scott County Animal Shelter, and many of the pets for adoption are housed there in addition to the many Foster Homes which are homes of volunteers.
