Hendricks County Humane Society
Hendricks County Humane Society (HCHS) is a not-for-profit 501(c)-3 organization which was founded during 1974. We are a volunteer-based organization, governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that is served by Hendricks County business people and citizens. Bylaws and Board Policy, provide the foundation, as well as all direction, for HCHS endeavors.
HCHS programs are funded by donations, fundraising events, grants, bequests, supporterships, and memorial contributions. We do not receive tax money or government assistance. Our programs are dedicated to the purpose of serving as “A Voice for the Animals”.
To carry out the goals of the Humane Education Program, HCHS employs two part-time Humane Educators. In order to maintain the day to day operations of our postal service, email, and voice mail, HCHS employs a part-time Office Administrator.
HCHS does not own or operate a shelter. The Hendricks County Animal Control Facility (HCACF), located on Old US Hwy 36 in Danville, serves as the local shelter. HCACF is operated by the County Government and funded by taxpayer money. Their phone number is 317-745-9250. They are currently open to the public on Saturdays to facilitate adoptions.
