A Pro-Life Shelter 

New Year...New Home! At White River Humane Society, all dogs over 1 year old, all cats, and all kittens have special adoption fees for the new year! Give a WRHS homeless pet a new beginning by bringing one into your home. This is only for a limited time so stop by and see what is available or check out our website today! As of 1-23-15, funds are still available for reduced adoption fees! 

Here's a tip...get those pets chipped for only $5! Cruiser here has some wonderful news for your furbabies! Thanks to the BISSELL Pet Foundation, WRHS will be offering $5 microchips while funds last. That means you will save $10!! One in three pets will get lost. Without ID, 90% won't return home. Give your pets the gift that could help them find their way home some day.
Give the shelter a call at 812-279-2457 with any questions you may have or bring your cats or dogs in during the hours of M-F 10-4:30 and Sat 10-3:30 for microchips! As of 1-16-15, funds are still available to get your pet microchipped for ONLY $5!!

Bonnie is an older lab mix girl who is almost 7 years young.  She loves being an outside dog, and she is very sweet to people.  She does get along with other dogs, and she enjoys their company.  Bonnie has also been at the shelter for 10 months. Bonnie is fixed and ready for her forever after.  Bonnie has a special adoption fee as well!

Our special cat of the week is Nellie.  Nellie came to the shelter with another female who she shared 11 babies with.  Both were great mothers caring for each other's babies.  Nellie's friend and all her babies have now found new homes, but Nellie is still waiting.  She is pretty young, around a year old, and she gets along with other cats.  Nellie has been at the shelter since last Spring, and she hopes that she isn't there until this spring.  Nellie, along with all the other cats and kittens at the shelter has a special adoption fee!

Our Mission
To care for the lost and homeless animals of Lawrence County, while providing education and services to the public that will lead to reducing the number of unwanted animals born in our community.


Prevent a Litter, Fix your Critter!
The White River Humane Society's mission is to end unwanted and abandoned animals in our community.  Each adopted animal that leaves our shelter has been spayed or neutered.
Keep in mind there aren't enough homes for all the litters born in Lawrence County, so please Spay or Neuter your pet.
