Welcome to HSMC!

Serving Madison County, Ohio since 1989.

The Humane Society of Madison County (HSMC) is a non-profit 501c3 organization founded on July 3, 1989 by a group of Madison County residents who felt there was a great need for a Humane Society in Madison County. HSMC is supported by the Madison County Commissioners, Madison County Sheriff’s office, donations, grants, fundraising, and adoptions.

The Ohio Pet License Plates are Ohio vehicle registration plates with special pet images. The purchase of a special image from the BMV raises funds for spay and neuter of dogs and cats at agencies like humane societies, non-profit dog and cat rescues, and government animal control facilities, helping more homeless animals to find forever homes!
