The Humane Society of Perry County would like to thank all the people, businesses and veterinarians who make it possible to continue helping responsible animal owners in our county. If it were not for your generous donations, we could not continue with our projects of helping to spay and neuter Perry County animals. Also the ability to help provide dog houses or the straw giveaway in the fall would not be possible.
Due to your generous donations, many disabled veterans and senior citizens have also received much needed help. In the past six years the Humane Society has been able to help more than 1, 000 families in Perry County through its voucher system.
We feel there is a need to clarify the difference between the Humane Society of Perry County, and the Perry County Animal Shelter. The Humane Society of Perry County receives donations only. The Humane Society provides services with all volunteers and donations only. There are no paid employees.
The Perry County Animal Shelter is supported by your taxes through payments from Perry County and the cities within the county. They also have paid employees at the shelter.
Please do not misunderstand me. The Perry County Animal Shelter is very important as they house the unwanted animals in this county and to be able to do that, they need the government funding. The difference is the Humane Society provides the help needed for responsible owners to get their animals spayed and neutered. This in turn will help keep the shelter from becoming overrun with unwanted animals. The Humane Society takes many kinds of donations. We have donation containers at many local businesses and an aluminum-can dropoff at 1347 Main Street. Also Glenn Markiewicz at (812) 619-0447 will pick up donated scrap metal.
President, The Humane Society of Perry County
