About PAHS

Plainfield Area Humane Society

The Plainfield Area Humane Society is a private 501(c)3 non-profit organization (Federal Tax ID 22-1554536), governed by a Board of Trustees. We have been in continuous operation since 1933. Our income comes from donations, animal control service contracts, adoption fees, fund-raisers, bequests, grants and corporate gifts. In addition to caring for and rehabilitating stray, abandoned and unwanted animals, PAHS provides programs on pet care and responsible ownership for scout, school, church, business and library groups by appointment and at no charge. These programs cover the social, health and humane aspects of living with domestic and wild animals in our urban and suburban communities.
