The Humane Society for Hamilton County is the only open-admission, no-kill shelter in the state, servicing Fishers, Carmel, Noblesville, Westfield and the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department. The shelter takes in an average of 3,000 animals annually and has a 98 percent placement rate, compared to the nation’s 36 percent average placement rate.

To maintain its operations, Hamilton County Humane Society relies heavily on the proceeds of special events like Woofstock in addition to private donations, adoption and service fees, corporate sponsorships, membership and grants.

Woofstock is a festival in celebration of the relationship between dogs and their owners. the festival offers dog owners the opportunity to pamper and play with their dogs while also learning about responsible pet ownership, pet adoption and the programs and resources offered by the Humane Society for Hamilton County.




Woofstock will kick off with the Woof It & Hoof It Charity Dog Walk which helps raise money to save the lives of abused, neglected and injured animals. One hundred percent of the funds raised during Woof It & Hoof It will go to HSHC’s Survivor program, which provides emergency medical care and treatment to HSHC animals. For the first time, this year’s Woofstock will include the Woofstock Pops Concert Presented by WZPL featuring national pops acts Jojo and Jordan Fisher. The concert will begin at 7 p.m.
