The Humane Society of Elkhart County (HSEC) is dedicated to promoting respect and responsibility for all animals and to the prevention of suffering and neglect through education, public service and adoption. Because we provide animal control to most of Elkhart County, we are considered an open admission shelter. This means HSEC will not refuse animals from Elkhart County service area residents if the shelter is full. Although we are an Open Admission shelter, we are proud to say that every animal that goes into our adoption center stays there until they are adopted. We have worked really hard to try every effort of finding an animal a home by adoption or working with legitimate animal welfare groups. If the animal won't fit well in our adoption center, we will try to find another animal welfare group to give it a home.
