Come into the shelter to meet our animals! We find the best way to select a pet is to spend time with them. Sometimes what you expect from a photo on Facebook is not what you’ll find when you meet them. We want you to know the good and the challenging about our animals! (NOTE: During the time of Covid-19 we require appointments to visit the animals so that we can maintain appropriate distancing. Call (219) 872-4499 to schedule.)
Fill out an application at the shelter. We do not provide applications in advance, because we want you to meet the pet first. Allow yourself fifteen minutes or so to complete the two page application.
You call us the next day for our decision. We review applications during the shelter’s closed hours. Sometimes we will have questions, or you might want to bring your dog to the shelter to see if it gets along with your potential new dog. Once we are all ready, we will schedule an appointment to complete your adoption contract, pay your fees and take your new pet home!
