Porter County Animal Shelter
Porter County Animal Shelter Logo

Our Mission

It is our mission to reduce animal homelessness and pet overpopulation by caring for and sheltering homeless animals, providing education to the public about responsible ownership, practicing vetted and thorough adoption services, and advocating spay & neuter programs.  We are a NO KILL Shelter in that we euthanize only non-rehabilitatable pets who are irremediably suffering or dangerous to people or other pets.

How Can We Help You?

Please view the menu on the left side of our page.

Welcome to our new website! We've tried to develop a website that is user friendly and will offer you a wide selection of information.

From adoption information and adoptable animal photos to low cost spay/neuter, from updates on our new shelter to volunteer opportunities, from helping you find your lost animal to reporting stray and dangerous animals, we think that you will find everything that you want and need to help you understand what we do, answer questions about our services and policies, provide you information about adopting, and so much more. 

Please feel free to explore!
