Who We Are: The Humane Society of Jackson County (JC Humane) is a private, non-profit animal welfare organization that has served the residents and animals of Seymour, Indiana for close to 30 years.  We provide short term shelter care for animals, lost and found services, adoptions, and advice regarding animal health and behavior. 

Every day of the year our shelter is thoroughly cleaned.  Food, water, exercise, medication, and necessary veterinary care along with lots of TLC are provided to the animals.  All of these services are provided by our staff as well as hundreds of hours of donated time by our board and other volunteers. Some animals arrive at the shelter with illnesses or injuries. Often, these animals receive additional medical care to make them well enough got the adoption and rescue programs. We are committed to saving as many lives as possible.

JC Humane receives no funding is received from the Humane Society of the United States or other national humane organization. We rely on funds provided by the City of Seymour and especially the generous donations of people who support the shelter through goodwill donations, fund raising events and memorial sponsorships.
