Our shelter is located at

2424 Sand Rd.

Port Clinton, OH 43452 

​​We are the Humane Society of Ottawa County (HSOC).  
Our shelter is a 501c(3) no-kill shelter that was established in 1976. Since then, we have continued to provide a vital service to the community, not only for the animals, but for adults and children as well. Our organization prides itself by caring for the animals of Ottawa County. 

Our goal is to turn unwanted, neglected and abused animals into loving members of new families.  We are dedicated to a program of spaying and neutering animals to ensure that more animals find their way into caring homes.

We maintain a "NO KILL" shelter within humane guidelines.

As you all know, 2020 has been a crazy year! As a non-profit, 100% of our operating expenses are funded through donations and fundraisers. We had to cancel every fundraiser planned for 2020 due to COVID-19.
Recently, a gentleman by the name of Dave Schwan reached out to us with an idea. (You may recognize the name Schwan as in Schwan Orchards right here in Port Clinton! Best peaches, peach wine and peach muffins in the world!) Well, Dave along with his wife, Tonya Tack and their daughter Evelyn, are animal lovers and advocates. They worked together and created this coloring book called Doggy Doodles. 🐾
This adorably illustrated (by Dave!) coloring book sells for just $9.99 and 50% of the profits from each one sold comes directly to our shelter animals! The book is available on AmazonSmile by clicking here:


You can also pick one up at The Lake House at Harbor Light Landing or right here at the shelter!

This coloring book will make a great stocking stuffer for the animal lovers on your list! 🐾❤️
