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.

As part of Cat's Pride's Litter for Good program, every time you buy a green jug of Fresh & Light litter, Cat’s Pride will donate a pound of litter to animal welfare organizations across America. To nominate HSMC to receive cat litter donations, just go to, sign up or login, and use our zip code (43162) to find and nominate HSMC. That's it! Thank you for your support!
