The Humane Society of Adams County, Inc. (HSAC) is a non-profit 501c 3 organization (EIN 86-1175774), that was established in 2005 and is based in West Union, Ohio.  HSAC currently serves Adams County, Ohio, through the coordination of low-cost pet sterilization clinics, pet rescue and rehoming, humane education, and public outreach programs.  HSAC is not associated with the Humane Society of the United States, or any other animal welfare organization.

The HSAC Animal Shelter is operated as a private, non-profit animal shelter, which serves the residents of Adams County. The shelter has the ability to house 46 animals at one time, yet the average monthly requests for intake is much higher. HSAC uses many resources to try and find homes for every adoptable animal either by adoption, foster home or rescue group. 

The Humane Society of Adams County is an Adoption Guarantee organization. This means that HSAC will not euthanize an animal to make space in the shelter for new animals.

While we always recommend supporting our local businesses sometimes you have to buy online. If you shop on Amazon please consider using Amazon Smile. Amazon Smile will donate 0.5% of your purchase directly to the Humane Society of Adams County. All you have to do is visit instead of just going to and then search for the Humane Society of Adams County and add us as your selected charity. That's it! From there just shop as you normally would and remember to return to Amazon Smile next time you shop on Amazon. No extra cost to you and you get the satisfaction of helping the animals.
