Indiana Animal Rescue in urgent need of foster homes and supplies

It’s not uncommon in the rescue community for facilities to end up with an exorbitant amount of cats and kittens this time of year, but for the Posey Humane Society in Mount Vernon, Indiana, the situation is dire.

The shelter is full

The Posey Humane Society is so overrun with cats and kittens at the moment that they are at capacity and cannot currently accept any more. The urgency could be felt in their public appeal on social media as they ask the community for help.

We no longer have room for cats or kittens. Please help us help you keep them! We have the most amazing staff, but we’re all drowning. Completely outdated.

Make a donation

If you are able to donate to help care for these animals, Posey Humane Society would appreciate bags of Purina Dry Cat Food (in blue bags) and clumping cat litter. You can also make monetary donations through the Posey Humane Society website. This is also where you’ll find their wish list for other items they need, like cleaning supplies, flea prevention products, toys, treats, and more.

If you’re not afraid to get your hands dirty, we encourage you to volunteer at the rescue to help clean the kennels. Fair warning, this can be a bit of a stinky job, but if you’re up for the task, you can email the Posey Humane Society at [email protected] or call them at (812) 838-3211.

Don’t expect the place to smell like roses…we currently have over 100 cats/kittens in our care (not counting those in foster homes).


If you have room in your home and would like to become a foster family, this is one of the best ways to help the Posey Humane Society right now. Until some of the more than 100 cats and kittens in their care are adopted or moved to rescue homes, the shelter is too full to accept any more cats or kittens who might need their help. Fostering a cat or kitten costs you nothing. The rescue pays for everything your new foster family will need. Sign up to become a host family on their website

Other ways to help

Perhaps one of the less glamorous, but most important, ways you can help is to neuter or neuter your own pets. You can also trap and modify all the feral cats in the neighborhood before releasing them where you found them. This allows them to live their lives without further contributing to overcrowding in shelters.
