We have to work very hard to raise funds. It is not easy but we do it for the animals. And for all of us working to save animals’ lives, it’s hard to fathom that so many animals are not wanted or are intentionally mistreated or are victims of violence.    It is for those animals that we do what we do and I know that is why you help us.   We work hard to see that all of the animals are well taken care of while they remain at our shelter and then we work as hard to find them responsible and loving forever homes.   Our purpose is to do whatever we can to protect defenseless animals from humans who do not care for them and look upon them as disposable items, or who would cause them pain or suffering.  That is our mission!   You help us make a difference in our Humane Society. Thank you!!   Humane Society Northwest Indiana 6100 Melton Rd.
