    by: yams21

    I know that the Henry County Humane Society does everything they can to find perfect homes for animals that need one. They also try hard to find the homes of lost pets that make their way to the shelter.

    Pros

    This shelter does whatever it can to help animals find perfect homes.

    Cons

    This shelter could use more space and updated facilities.

MAc has had a really tuff life growing up in a puppy mill from Missouri and we have only had him for just about a month..but have fallen in love with him as a part of our family..We are heartbroken not knowing where MAcs at or if hes ok! We have friends from Payne, Oh. that are willing to drive back to Hamler if Mac is found! We ask that if you see him..too please NOT CHASE him or Yell at him..He will only keep running if hes scared! If you are from Hamler, Ohio or that Area exc..PLEASE REPOST THIS Bulletin for Us! Our power is off due to weather and is not supposed to back on till Wed. It would be a great Christmas present for us and our kids to have Mac back home with us in Indiana..and with this weather we are extra worried! If you can help us, God Bless! Thanks!!

  • 10. I was one of the Founding Members!

    by: lbgrove

    My husband, dear dog and I have now retired to Oregon BUT . . . . . . . . I still think of the very beginning of the existance of the Henry County Humane Society because I was there! \r\n\r\nSo much to do in the beginning--finding an attorney, the open-to-the-public meetings and finally people being nominated for the Board of Directors and Officers (me included), writing up our By-Laws etc. and my volunteering at the Shelter (after finding a building) and also volunteering at the retail store attached to the Shelter. Before that--there was hiring Shelter personnel and watching some burn out and leave and some who have stayed and stayed. BUT they always, always put the animals first.\r\n\r\nThe Board made a few mistakes in the people we hired but we learned--sometimes the hard way.\r\n\r\nI could go on and on but it comes down to the hard facts that the Henry County Humane Shelter deserves a good shot at this Makeover.\r\n\r\nMy old geezer, but SO precious dog, is laying next to me as I type this. She snores! She's deaf now. I adopted her at the Henry County Shelter and my husband and I have decided she was the best money we ever spent.\r\n\r\nAnd before this sweet dog lived with us, we adopted two sisters from a Shelter. We have their ashes.\r\n\r\nAnd lastly, don't let anyone ever tell you dogs are dumb.\r\n\r\nLisa B. (Pharaoh's mother)

    Pros

    The personnel and volunteers work so hard with little.

    Cons

    It needs a Makeover (hint, hint)!

  • 11. Doing A Lot With Very Little

    by: BuckeyeTanna

    The staff and volunteers at the Henry County Humane Society work very hard to keep the shelter clean and in welcoming visitors. They do not complain about having to do a lot with very little. \r\n\r\nA good friend of mine looked for a small family dog for a couple of months and ended up at the Henry Co. Humane Society upon my recommendation. They have had Beauty now for well over a year. She had a lot of kidney stones (I have never seen so many!) and needed lots of TLC and patience. The Humane Society did not give up on her and neither has my friend's family members. The staff were very up front about Beauty's health conditions and had made sure many steps were followed prior to her adoption and the fact that her condition might be costly. I was very impressed by their honesty and glad they did sugar-coat what would need to be done through out her life.

    Pros

    Staff and Volunteers are dedicated and helpful.

    Cons

    Building is not a visable facility; limited hours.

  • 12. A shelter that needs more space ([email protected])

    by: heathersmith3

    My place of employment sends volunteers to the Henry Co. Humane Society every other Friday. My co-worker has said that everyone there is very caring, hard working and dedicated towards these animals. The only problem is that every kennel is full. This shelter needs more space to be able to provide for every animal that needs a loving home.

    Pros

    hard working staff, committed to the animals and finding the best home possible for them

    Cons

    little space

  • 13. The Humane Society needs a makeover!!!

    by: Hoperdoodle

    This is a good Humane Society in which needs an important makeover. They should get the makeover because there are many people in which are supporting the Henry County Humane Society from all over Henry Co.

    Pros

    Help animals find good homes.

    Cons

    They need to have this Makeover.

  • 14. We need a make-over

    by: Hopemak

    Not only does Henry County do a great job of helping pets but it also has several events that people can enjoy with their pets. Everyone we have talked to from the shelter has been extremely helpful and we are hoping they continue the great work. They don't only help pets, they help people. Pets are family and will love you unconditionally forever.

    Pros

    Great people doing a great job helping pets and people

    Cons

    They need a make over

  • 17. My favorite Cat

    by: elissann13

    I adopted my first cat from there in 2000. There was adorable kittens, but this cat was one of the biggest cats I had ever seen! he was beautiful. He had a white belly, tiger striped tail, and a half white half caramel colored nose. Oh I felll in love immediately! Cooper fit in with the family right away too! The staff helped us with the process of adopting him and getting him 'fixed' right away so he could come home with us as soon as possible. The Henry County Humane Society does its best to help lost and found animals, give strays a place to go, and find just the right home for all animals!

    Pros

    I got to adopt Cooper! The staff was friendly and cooperative with us, and helped us get him home right away!

    Cons

    The building is very old and could use some updates.

  • 18. Safe and sound!

    by: ztT4MP44633597

    Lady zooped away one Saturday morning. We were frantic and tried every way we knew to find her. On Monday morning when I called the Henry County Humane Society we were so relieved to find her resting in the shelter. The shelter was very clean and Lady was so happy to see us. What a relief!

    Pros

    It's a relief that our animals have a safe haven when they stray.

    Cons

    There are no cons.

  • 19. A shelter that cares

    by: wildlifebiotwn

    This shelter quickly moves animals in and out. They serve a large area and take animals in from anywhere. My family has adopted 3 dogs and 1 cat from this shelter in the past two years. All of the animals have been perfect for our family. They do a great job matching people with animals and screening potential owners to make sure the animal won't need to be returned. They include spaying/neutering and shots in the cost of the adoption. They have an organized system and are thorough in keeping the place clean. Their volunteers and workers care for the animals and do their best to find them good homes.

    Pros

    The people here do anything they can to get animals adopted and are organized and clean!

    Cons

    They need more space and better temperature control
