At the Michiana Humane Society, we strive to do all that we can on behalf of the abandoned and unwanted animals in our community.  We offer adoption services, and we take in animals that people can no longer care for.

We also have educational programming for schools and other groups, and this fall we will begin offering occasional programming for the public.

The Michiana Humane Society serves LaPorte County, Indiana and Berrien County, Michigan. To learn more, please stop by or call our offices at 219-872-4499.

Junior Achievement pupils get a Humane Society education ~ Third-graders learn about local shelter
MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. — Learning about the world of business involved a wagging tail and plenty of purring for two classes of New Buffalo Elementary School third-graders on Thursday, Feb. 20.

The number of homeless animals varies by state—in some states there are as many as 300,000 homeless animals euthanized in animal shelters every year. These are not the offspring of homeless “street” animals—these are the puppies and kittens of cherished family pets and even purebreds. Spay/neuter is the only permanent, 100 percent effective method of birth control for dogs and cats. READ MORE
