How You Can Help


Our volunteers are indispensable. Dozens of dedicated women and men donate hundreds of hours in virtually every department of the shelter. Some are here 2 or 3 days per week, while others come in one afternoon. All levels of commitment are greatly appreciated. If you love animals and like working with people, consider volunteering. Contact our office for more information 812-858-1132 or e-mail us at

We rely on donors like you to maintain our "no-kill" status.   Because WHS receives no tax dollars, our work is made possible only by the generosity of people like yourself. Your donation to the Warrick Humane Society helps us care for dogs and cats who are waiting at WHS for their forever families. We need help with medical expenses, feeding and care. Thank you for supporting the WHS mission: to eliminate homelessness in pets and to encourage spay/neuter in our pets.
