A Community Cat is a cat that has been fixed, vaccinated and eartipped then released back into the area from which it was captured. They are the unowned stray and feral (unsocialized) cats who live outdoors in our neighborhoods without a particular home or owner. Dubois County Humane Society also operates a pet food pantry to assist the community in feeding sterilized feral cat colonies. Please inquire with our office for food needs at 812-482-7387.
Are you feeding stray cats?
We can help get them fixed. Most community shelters, including DCHS, can't save and support the huge number of accidental litters and strays and brought to the shelter every day. It is estimated there are several thousand stray/community cats in our area. Help us end the stray cat overpopulation in Dubois County!

We ask for a $30 donation per cat. Any donation you can make is appreciated but not required as we rely on donations to help as many cats as possible. Ask about FREE or discounted programs you may qualify for as funds are available. The surgeries are done the first and third Monday of each month. Please visit DCHS to sign up in advance, Mondays 6-8, Tuesdays 1-5, Wednesdays 6-8, Thursdays 1-5, and Saturdays 11-3
