Our Pet List

Who We Are

The Blackford County Animal Shelter, Inc. is a non-profit organization. We provide animal control for Blackford County, Hartford City, Montpelier, and Shamrock Lakes. Our mission is to provide temporary shelter, care and medical attention for stray, surrendered or otherwise homeless cats and dogs in Blackford County, to prevent animal cruelty and neglect and prosecute offenders, to strengthen the human-animal bond through education and adoption, and to promote the importance of spaying and neutering to help control the pet overpopulation.

Volunteer Opportunities

We want to involve the community in our efforts to care for the animals. We WANT and NEED Volunteers - to walk the dogs, play with the cats, foster animals until we find a permanet home for them, help with fund raisers and adoption events, computer input, cleaning cat cages at the Muncie PetSmart, caring for the animals at the shelter. Please call us for more information on how to volunteer with us.


Donations are welcome and VERY MUCH APPRECIATED. We are ALWAYS in need of items such as bleach, pine sol, laundry detergent, dish soap, paper towel, trash bags, scoopable litter, toys for cats and dogs, metal food bowls, blankets, towels, sheets, pillow cases. Monetary donations and gift cards are great as well.

Adopting a friend

Our shelter is full of wonderful cats and dogs just waiting for you to come and take them home. Our adoption requirements are that you must provide a loving home and all your current animals are spayed or neutered. We begin the adoption process with an adoption application. Our general adoption fees are: Adult Cats $65, Kittens $85, Adult Dogs $105, and Puppies $150 - there may be exceptions to these fees at the board's discretion. All animals are spayed/neutered, up to date with age appropriate vaccines, on flea prevention, have been heartworm/ feline leukemia/ FIV tested and are micro-chipped.

Adoption Opportunities

We are an adoption partner with PetSmart. We are at the Muncie PetSmart every Saturday with cats and dogs and we have a handful of cats at the Muncie PetSmart 24/7. We are also at the Fort Wayne - Jefferson Pointe and Noblesville locations - unfortunately we cannot get to these two locations every week as we currently do not have enough volunteers to staff all 3 locations every week. We will be at the Fort Wayne - Jefferson Pointe and Noblesville PetSmart locations on Saturday, December 10th. We will be doing Santa pictures at Noblesville on 12/10 as well as adopting out animals. We will be doing Santa pictures at the Muncie PetSmart Saturday and Sunday, 12/17 and 12/18.
