Capital Campaign


We need your help! Every dollar counts! Donate Today!

Construction of a new building for The Humane Society of Elkhart County (HSEC) will be completed in the fall of 2017!  This larger, more efficient facility will better accommodate the physical and emotional needs of the animals as well as expand HSEC’s capacity to offer outreach and educational programs.  Wrapping up the building campaign, funds are still needed to help purchase needed equipment, cages and furnishings to outfit all rooms.  Be a partner now to help us unleash the possibilities with your donation in helping the thousands of animals supported by HSEC!
