If it seems like the Clinton County Humane Society (CCIHS) is a non-stop flurry of activity, that’s because it is. There is no lights-out when you’re caring for helpless animals.
CCHIS performs a valuable service to our community: working with local animal control and other rescue organizations to take in unwanted or mistreated pets; providing adoption services; and offering information, tools, services, and advice for pet owners.
If you’re thinking of getting a dog or kitty, this is the place to come. Click on the Pet Finder on the organization’s website and you’ll be introduced to a bevy of cuteness—dogs, kitties, and other critters big and small, all looking for a good home. CHIHS will help match your personality with that of the pet, important for both of you to be happy.
CCHIS provides valuable services too, such micro-chipping cats or dogs so you can keep track of them or trimming your pet’s nails, a job they’re skilled in doing.
Can’t have a pet, but love animals? Stop by the CCHIS between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on the first or third Saturday and you can visit your favorite animals. They’ll love it!

Keeping a building-full of animals requires a lot of patience, skill—and money to feed and care for all those hungry guys. Contributions and volunteers are vital. But the rewards—wagging tails and gentle purring—are worth every penny.
