The Humane Society Serving Logan County has been active over the past year to bring more services to the county’s animals.
The society has put together a new board comprised of local business people. The goal is to operate the Humane Society like a business and make it profitable.
A new clinic is in the works. The Humane Society is working to bring a spaying and neutering clinic to the county. It will allow for the spaying or neutering of an animal at a reduced rate.
The organization will also continue to have its vaccine clinics for dogs.
The society is a 501(c)(3) organization and relies mostly on fundraisers and donations to operate. The Humane Society is not affiliated with the county but receives part of its funding from the local government. The county funding comes as payment for services the Humane Society provides to the county. The funds account for about a third of the Humane Society’s operating costs.
Some of the Humane Society’s fundraisers include dog washes, Bingo, and garage sales.
Garage sales are new for the organization. Sales will be held on the third Saturday of every month.
Bingo is the biggest fundraiser for the organization. It is held every Tuesday and Thursday and on the first Saturday of the month at the Richland Township Hall, 615 Center Street, Belle Center.

The Humane Society is located at 2521 US 68 North, Bellefontaine. A donation can be money, paper towels, bedding, pet food, or bleach. Also, all donations to the organization are tax deductible.
