For over 100 years, our organization’s mission has always remained the same. To make the lives of companion
animals better. Over the last 20 years alone, we have made a vital impact in the community by helping tens of
thousands of unwanted, homeless, abused, neglected, and misplaced dogs receive medical care and find homes.
The current shelter building was constructed in the late 1990’s and has reached the end of it’s lifespan. Within crumbling walls and disrepair, we cannot continue to grow and provide the standard of care we strive to maintain without a new facility.
A new 7,000 square feet facility with air quality, noise reduction, and enhanced disease control measures would bring a significant improvement in both the physical and well being of the animals who are being housed in our current facility.
Over the last 7 years the Ross County Humane Society has found a home for every adoptable dog. Only the dogs whose health cannot be raised to the level of where they can be adopted are euthanized or dogs with extreme behavior challenges. In the past 50% of all animals that came into the shelter were euthanized for lack of space, lack of adoptions, behavior challenges or illness. Over the Ross County Humane Society’s history, those involved have worked tirelessly building relationships and improving programs. This level of success and dedication from the employees and volunteers of the Humane Society needs the full support from the citizens of our community.
RCHS does not receive any support from the Humane Society of the United States. Nor do we receive any federal or state funding sources. We rely largely on donations, fundraisers and grants for our program activities. All donations are tax deductibledonate now
