Why Rescues?

FOHCAS and Hardin County Animal Shelter are excited to work with over 90 rescues in the country.  We have saved over 900 dogs by working with rescues.  Sometimes you'll be interested in a pet and then be told it has been "pulled by a rescue" or "committed to rescue" - to understand why this can be a better option for a pet than a local adoption, please read "Why Rescues?" by Jo Ellen Thomas, our Rescue Coordinator. 

FOHCAS Fosters

Unless otherwise noted, these dogs and cats are available for adoption through Friends of Hardin County Animal Shelter. These pets are under our foster care because of their very special individual needs, as you will read in their descriptions.  

We require a home inspection and references along with a $50 adoption fee before we will release the pet to your care.
