ChipotleEnjoy a meal at Chipotle in Merrillville on Sunday, October 2nd from 2pm-6pm and support the Humane Society of Hobart,  Dig into a delicious meal and help out a great cause!  See the Events&Fundraising page for details.  

We always need the following supplies, especially now:

  • WE REALLY NEED NEWSPAPERS RIGHT NOW!  They are used to line to small animal cages and we are running low.  If you can take out the shiny advertisement pages, that would be great.
  • Dry Dog Food All brown, Puppy Chow Natural, Kitten Chow, Cat Chow
  • Bleach (of course!),  Laundry soap, Paper towels, Litter (we use LOTS!)

Do you wonder where all those supplies go?  Every single morning all the dog kennels are scrubbed down and the small animal cages are wiped down with bleach solution and the paper lining is refreshed.  As always, THANK YOU for the things you donate to us!

The Shelter is having an overstock sale of carriers and wire kennels, all sizes . Stop in and visit!


Do you wonder what a cat with a tipped ear means?  It is a cat that is or was “free-ranging” that was trapped and neutered/spayed.  The practice of “Trap, Neuter, Release” is often used to try to control the feral cat population by reducing wild litters. By tipping the ear, a trapped animal can be immediately identified as already being fixed.  Sometimes it happens to friendly cats who might end up in our shelter for adoption.  We hope you won’t overlook them when seeking a new family member!

The Humane Society of Hobart is still looking for 1 more KENNEL ASSISTANT.  Applicants must:

  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Be available to work weekends (Saturday & Sunday).

The position involves primarily careful and thorough cleaning of dog kennels and cat cages but also handling and evaluating animals (both friendly and not so!) and working with the public.  Please contact the shelter for more info.

Did you know we are in the process of completing some needed shelter improvements, specifically an expanded and improved isolation/quarantine area!  Follow this link to see some pictures and details!Shelter Improvements
