Adoption policy

The Marion/Grant County Humane Society is a privately funded organization dedicated to the placement of animals under its care into good, well-screened forever homes. It is funded and depends on monetary and supply donations. It is a no-kill facility with animals staying as long as it may take to find that home. Euthanasia is a last resort due to severe medical or behavioral situations. We are limited in the number of animals that we can take in and care for. We try very hard but just do not have enough room for the large number of strays and owner surrenders that we receive in this rural county. If you see an animal that you are interested in please contact us right away - you will definitely be saving a life when you adopt from us! We participate in the Sponsor a Pet program. Go to to sponsor a pet! We are also a member of Walk for a Dog by WoofTrax. Check your smart phone apps store and select us as your shelter of choice ! We earn money when you walk your dog ! We accept sponsorships for specific animals at our facility on South Miller Avenue. These donations can be used to offset medical expenses or reduce the adoption fee for an animal enhancing the possibility of it getting adopted. Home screening for these adoptions remains the same. Our Wish List includes bleach, paper towels, dish soap, blankets and throws for dogs to sleep on, canned cat food, canned dog food, dry cat food, dry dog food, clay non-scoopable cat litter, scoopable cat litter, general all purpose cleaner, 39 gallon trash bags, laundry soap, toilet paper, and gift cards to local businesses for the other miscellaneous items we need(copy paper, copy machine ink, flea treatment products, special food items, etc.). A more expanded list is available at the Humane Society. We always welcome volunteers(over the age of 16 years unless accompanied by an adult) to help walk dogs, clean dishes, do laundry, mop kennels and floors, wash windows and walls, clean up the outside grounds, do deep cleaning projects, brush cats, clip cat nails(only if experienced), and organized supplies, help with adoption events and fundraisers, and other needs as they arrive. The Humane Society does not do low cost spaying and neutering but does offer transports on a regular basis to our veterinarian facility for owned animals. If you are in need of this service, please call us at 765-618-9293. The Marion/Grant County Humane Society has just begun(May 2018) the Community Cat Project, a TNR program for cat colonies in Grant County. Volunteers are needed to help with the program while monetary donations are needed to fund it. If you would like more information on either of these areas or are a caretaker and need surgery assistance, please contact the Humane Society at 765-618-9293. If you have an animal behavioral issue, please call the Humane Society. We have a staff with years of experience and we may be able to offer suggestions to help. This is dedicated to all the strays in Grant County Prayer of a Stray Dear God please send me somebody who\"ll care! I\"m tried of running, I\"m sick with despair. My body is aching, it\"s so racked with pain, and dear God I pray as I run in the rain. < That someone will love me and give me a home. A warm cozy bed and a big juicy bone. My last owner tied me all day in the yard Sometimes with no water and God that was hard! So I chewed my leash God and I ran away To rummage in garbage and live as a stray. But now God I\"m tired and hungry and cold. And I\"m so afraid that I\"ll never grow old. They\"ve chased me with sticks and hit me with stones While I run the streets just looking for bones! I\"m not really bad God, please help if you can, For I have become just a victim of man! I\"m wormy dear God and I\"m ridden with fleas and All that I want is an owner to please! If you find one for me God, I\"ll try to be good And I won\"t chew their shoes, but I\"ll do as I should. I\"ll love them, protect them and try to obey When they tell me to sit, to lie down or to stay! I don\"t think I\"ll make it too long on my own, Cause I\"m getting so weak and I\"m so all alone. Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry, Cause I\"m so afraid God, that I\"m gonna to die! And I\"ve got so much love and devotion to give, That I should be given a new chance to live. So dear God please, please answer my prayer and Send me someone who will really care ... That is, dear God, if you\"re really there! ~Unknown~
