Saving Animals. Enriching Lives.
We have a story and want to share it with you. Throughout this website we want you to learn about who we are and how we, along with the support of the Elkhart County community, help the many animals that find their way to us. We have a lot to say about our staff, what we do, our amazing volunteers, heartwarming stories along with the many programs and new initiatives that all revolve around the well being of the animals!
Every little bit counts. Your donations help homeless animals in need in our community.
What we do
Welcome, and thank you for considering adoption of a shelter companion! Learn more about adopting. Animals will be adopted first come, first adopt. No holds will be placed on adoption animals. Come visit us! Upon arrival at HSEC, we will take some basic information from you to help us with your pet match. Plan on taking your new pet home the same day. Please be patient, at times we experience large adoption customer crowds.
As soon as you notice your pet is missing, give us a call at 574-475-HSEC (4732) and we’ll complete a lost report. We are the only Humane Society in Elkhart County, and people often bring stray or found animals to our shelter or call us to report a found animal. Additionally, we serve as animal control for the county and often pick up stray or running at large animals which are then housed at the shelter. Visit the lost animals currently at HSEC.

The HSEC investigates an average of 100 animal abuse or neglect complaints monthly. The HSEC staff assists law enforcement agencies throughout the entire justice process from investigation through prosecution.
