Who We Are

We are dedicated to the lost and unclaimed domestic animals in Griffith. Fostering and finding homes for them is a priority, and we also promote and enforce responsible pet ownership throughout the community. Our mission is finding forever homes for these animals. If you see a dog or cat you'd like to meet please contact us immediately as the animal you see listed today might not be with us tomorrow.

Adopting a friend

We are currently working with several different rescue groups. An application will have to be filled out before placement can be made. All animals are spayed or neutered and vaccinated before they are placed in a new home. The shelter is small so we can not keep the animals too long, so if you see someone you like please email us or call immediately because none of them have much time and it's very stressful for them in these conditions. Months spent in a cage is very hard on them. Please email us if you would like to foster as well as adopt. The shelter is almost always in a critical state and needs fosters now, especially for cats. If you have fostered in the past or are interested in temporarily housing a cat or dog (or kittens, which are always available) please contact the shelter for more information.

Come Visit Us!

Just email to make an appointment to see any of the animals. Many of them are also at PETSMART in Schererville (by Lowes and JoAnne Fabrics) on Saturday and Sunday 12-4. (cats every weekend, not always dogs). You can always contact us to see if the dog you would like to meet will be at PETSMART or request to have one brought for you to meet. Come and visit all the animals looking for a forever home and see which one best suits your household and lifestyle. They are all in desperate need of new homes!
