It is our mission to serve our community in a humane, public safety capacity while working to keep pets with loving families by providing education opportunities and resources or facilitating re-homing or adoption when necessary.
We are Northeast Indiana’s largest open admission shelter. We are required to take in every animal that is brought through our doors, whether they are sick, injured or just in need of a new home. We work every day to promote a humane community and find a positive outcome for each healthy, safe and treatable animal in our care. Volunteers make it possible for us to save more lives than ever before by playing a pivotal role in caring for the animals and helping with the day to day operations of the shelter. In 2019, volunteers provided 14,453.58 volunteer hours which is the equivalent of 6.95 more full time staff members. We are forever grateful for the talents, skills, and knowledge brought to our organization through our volunteers!
