Greene County Humane Society to host fundraising event

Tuesday, January 26, 2021

The Greene County Humane Society in Linton has partnered with Jordan’s Way Charities to host an all-out fundraising experience. The Greene County Humane Society is dedicated to caring for homeless and unwanted animals within Greene County.

The humane society is raising money to keep pushing their mission, and so far in January, they have adopted out almost 30 animals and had zero euthanasias.

They are looking to their community to help them achieve their 2021 goal of 365 adoptions. They will also use the money to help continue to expand their spay & neuter programs as well as establish a pet food bank.

The fundraising is beginning immediately and running through the end of January but the main event will take place on Friday.

Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., there will be a Facebook live extravaganza complete with contests including raising money to see some people take a pie to the face or get a bucket of ice water dumped on their head.

You will be able to donate right from the live feed or on their Facebook page. You can find them on Facebook at

The event will be hosted by Kris Rotonda of Jordan’s Way, who has been featured on the Hallmark Channel and The Dodo.

Jordan’s Way’s long term goal is to “Clear the Shelters” and they are raising money for shelters by traveling to all 50 states in 2021 to do similar events.

The Greene County Humane Society is a non-profit animal shelter in Linton, and services all of Greene County with intake and adoption services. They also assist the community with spay and neuter vouchers as well as having a Trap-Neuter-Return program in place. The Greene County Humane Society is privately funded and relies on the generosity of others to complete their mission.

  • Noticed the phrase "zero euthanasias", so...... are they killing animals now? Recently went to this shelter and it stunk, seems it has changed the people that work there. Don't understand that, the previous staff cared for those animals and worked really hard. What is going on?
