Looking for a gift for any occasion that will make a difference.

Please consider making a tax deductible donation to the humane society. We offer spay/neuter assistance programs for Washington County residents. The humane society also assists with medical and other needs of animals at the shelter. The animal shelter is housing the animals longer which is great but it also increases their needs while waiting for their forever homes. Your donation CAN help change lives. If you would like for us to acknowledge a gift made in someone's name, please let us know and we will be sure they receive a card letting them know of your generosity. Go to and click on the PayPal link or mail a check to Humane Society (HSWCIN), 204 Joseph Street, Salem, IN 47167. We appreciate your assistance.

"Duke" Shepherd Mix
3 years   Male


Duke haa been treated for heart worms and is doing well. He will be available for adoption soon.

Duke and his brother Luke came to the shelter together when their older owner was no longer able to take care of them.

Luke found his new home within a few days but poor Duke tested positive for heart worms.

Heart worm treatment is very hard on a dog but it is the only way to remove the worms and stop the problems he would experience if the number of worms continued to increase.

His treatment is not cheap but this sweet guy is worth every penny.

If you would like to help pay for his treatment, please donate through PayPal or mail a check payable to HSWC, 204 Joseph Street, Salem 47167.
