Reviews for Humane Society-Calumet Area Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer at HSCA for 11 years now. The animals are loved and well taken care of. If they weren't, I wouldn't still be there! Of course, I now have my own zoo at home (an "occupational hazard"), but I still go to HSCA to help as often as I can. The animals need us, and we need them. Please come and help us by volunteering, or help the animals by adopting or donating.

After losing our Black Lab(Jakob), our Dalmatian mix(Lucky) went into a depression-he had never been alone before, so on his way home from work, my husband stopped by the Humane Society Calumet Area shelter and instantly fell in love with our Hound (Ozzie) and set up to adopt him-we only had to bring Lucky in to "Meet & Greet" before we brought him home....while there my husband mentioned that he had originally come in to see if he could find a Lab & it just so happened that a Lab (Otis) puppy's adoption had fallen thru, so we met him(of course I feel in love), he met Lucky, who immediately accepted him and within 1 week we had added 8 new feet to our home! As it turned out, Otis was a rescue from a Petland store in the area& would have been put down if it wasn't for the wonderful people of this Humane Society, and we have taken our boys back to visit the wonderful people to say Thank You for caring!

We adopted our first cat as a kitten in September of 2011. Best experience we could have ever asked for. When we moved to a bigger house we made the decision to adopt a second cat. We adopted an older cat April 2014. Another great adoption. My family are all proud supporters of the Humane Society and would highly recommend adoption from this facility.

I've seen first hand the amazing work of HSCA not only working for an animal clinic in the community but a donor well. When I found a stray I couldn't keep, they were so helpful in taking him in and caring for him.
Great staff, great facility, great work.

My daughter turned twelve this year and was interested in becoming a volunteer at the Humane Society. They have so many opportunities for the children to get involved. We are able to volunteer together and spend quality time doing what we love.

I adopted my dog from there 7 years ago and could not believe how hard they work to find the right homes for the animals there.I became a volunteer after a while and became involved in helping all I could.The people there really take care of these animals and work exceptionally hard to earn the money to help these animals. I can honestly say I am proud to be a volunteer there.The shelter is a non -profit organization. Three people that I know have adopted from there and they are happy with the care their animals received while there Great place.

I have been with the Humane Society Calumet Area for 20- years. When I started working with them the building on Columbia Avenue in Hammond was barely standing. There was room for very few dogs and even fewer cats. The miracle which has been created at HSCA today is almost unbelievable. There have been times when there has been as many as 450 animals housed in the facility on 45th Avenue in Munster. Each and every animal is tested, treated, fed and given loving care until they can find their "forever home". This is due to an amazing staff, employees, outstanding volunteers and donors. The volunteers at HSCA are the most dedicated, hard working, patience, loving people you will ever find. The most important people who keep the shelter going are the donors and the volunteers. Without those two groups of people, the advancements of adding an Intake Center, then a clinic, PAWS move to bigger quarters, then joining in with other rescue groups to aid in animal welfare across the region would not have been possible. I feel HSCA is and will continue to be at the forefront of animal care in the Calumet Area for years to come.

I decided to adopt my first dog from Humane Society Calumet Area back in 2008, after going to multiple shelters before. I didn't feel comfortable with any of the other shelters, and didn't feel like they actually cared about matching me up with an appropriate dog. After looking through and finding the dog I wanted, they worked with me to make sure she was right for me and I was right for her. I could tell they really cared about not only me, but the forever-home that the dog would end up with. I would recommend them to anyone else, as I have had such a great experience and ever since I adopted my dog in 2008, she has been my best furry friend since. Thank you Humane Society Calumet!

Humane Society Calumet Area is one of the best shelters in Indiana. Animals who end up there are lucky to land at an organization with such a caring, compassionate and progressive staff. They are true leaders in the field and simply do a phenomenal job for the animals.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

absolutely nothing!
