Give a Wag! Gives to Greenville Shelters

The Darke County Humane Society is a charitable animal welfare organization dedicated to advocating for animal welfare and caring for the sick, injured, and neglected animals. As a private nonprofit, they receive no government or other external funding and exist through the generous support of community donors. 

The organization was founded in 1953 to enforce laws for the prevention of cruelty and to instil humane treatment, especially to children and animals. Today, their efforts are focused on strengthening the local community by investigating animal neglect and abuse, rehabilitating animals in need, and placing pets into loving, responsible homes. The shelter operates an adoption center, lost and found pet reporting, vaccination clinics, spay/neuter clinics, and a field response program. 

They work with pet owners in every case to convey an understanding of best practices for humane animal treatment and how to make improvements in their home. In order to focus their limited resources on the neediest animals, the humane society only accepts sick or injured strays or animals rescued from abuse and neglect. Unwanted or owner-surrendered pets are referred to another great local animal organization, the Darke County Animal Shelter.

The Darke County Animal Shelter, a county-operated organization, strives to ensure the welfare and safety of animals and people through community outreach and professional law enforcement. Their efforts to provide humane dog control and care while enriching the local community are inclusive of reuniting lost pets with their owners, animal licensing, providing comfortable shelter and care, educating the public on topics related to companion animals, picking up surrendered animals, enforcing animal code, and humanely impounding stray animals to give them a new beginning in a happy, healthy home! 

The compassionate efforts of the Darke County Animal Shelter are supported by volunteers and Darke County Friends of the Shelter, a nonprofit organization established to help with the needs of the shelter and give every 4-legged citizen another chance!
