Improving the lives of animals.
Preventing cruelty through education.
Uniting pets with families.

Welcome, The Kokomo Humane Society provides our community with services and programs such as pet adoptions, humane education and volunteer opportunities. We also engage in animal cruelty investigation, 24 hour emergency service, and enforcement of local ordinances. 

No maximum stay time

We want to give adoptable animals every opportunity to find a good home. Therefore, we do not have a maximum holding time. We keep pets available for adoption as long as they stay healthy and we have space.


The Kokomo Humane Society’s 14th annual Barktober Fest dog walk has gone virtual!

We are staying safe and socially distanced while raising the much-needed funds to assist Howard County’s animals in need. Our goal is to raise at least $5,000 and the proceeds will be used to provide medical assistance, promote adoptions and enrich the lives of our shelter animals.The event will run from Saturday, October 17th to Saturday, October 31st and it will take place anywhere at any time! The benefit of a virtual walk is that you can complete it on your schedule, when you have time, indoors or outdoors and at your own pace.Join us and be part of a fun event that reaches lots of pet lovers in our community!

Thank you to our amazing sponsor!
