No, we are not the Humane Society. We are one of the departments of the City of Columbus. We utilize humane ideals and objectives in our operation and adhere to many of the guidelines set forth by nationally recognized Humane Organizations, but technically we are not a “Humane Society” operation. In this area there is a Bartholomew County Humane Society that serves the county population (outside the city limits). The Columbus Animal Control Shelter serves the population within the Columbus City limits.
